GEOTAGGING

Written by 

Global News brought to our attention the risk of taking photos of children from your cell telephone while your GPS tracking system is turned on. These photos are placed on the internet for all your friends and family to view and unknowingly, you have placed your family in potential jeopardy. Each picture contains tracking information that predators can use to pinpoint the location of your home and activities of your family with very little effort.

"…unknowingly, you have placed your family in potential jeopardy."

This tracking system feature on the internet is called 'Geotagging', an open source program that allows you to match date/time information from photos with location information. To read more detailed information on this very important subject including how to turn your GPS tracking system off your cell telephone and camera, please click on Geotagging. Be safe. Be wise. Protect yourself and your family.
