Smartphone pictures pose privacy risks-Camera's Have GPSPost: Cindy Ferry
Do you or your children send photo's via their phone? If so, you'll want to watch this. Watch to the end, where it will tell you how to turn off your camera's GPS, that allows folks to track you down from those photo's ... to your home, their school, where they play sports and just the play grounds they visit, grandparents house, anywhere you take and send a photo from. Others can track it, map out your daily run and follow you, looking for the opportunity to strike.
Also, I heard today that Apple has a system that tracks your moves much the same, but also of everything you do on their devices. What's that saying, just because you're paranoid someone is out to get you, doesn't mean they're not.

If you ignore beauty, you will soon find yourself without it ...
But if you invest in beauty, it will remain with you all the days of your life.
