Geotagging

July 4, 2010

As I take vacation photos here in NYC I am pondering the privacy implications of geotagging photos, even if intentional, not withstanding the unintentional act of recording your location on a certain date and time.

    well you’re recording the location and certain date and time of an item, the camera, or are you using your iPhone?

    and then there is the tagging of people in photos in Facebook …. now to combine the two?

    Just looking into the Charter and work of the IETF Geographic Location/Privacy (geopriv) Working Group:

    you wrote this a while ago, but there are some good solutions now for consumers to use to remove geotags from photos when they share them online. And, they are also free, so that’s also a benefit. If you have an iPhone, Android phone or PC, you should try Pixelgarde Photo Privacy Editor. It’s pretty simple to use and, like I said already, it’s free.
