Your Smartphone Pics Can Lead Criminals to Your Front Door [VIDEO]

I like to think I’m on top of things when it comes to social media.  I don’t post a lot to Facebook nor do I tweet on a regular basis, but I try to keep up to date with things.  That’s why I’m baffled at how things recirculate.  I have noticed lately on Facebook that a story from 2-years ago is making the rounds again.  Pictures taken on your smartphone and posted online can lead people to your front door.

Your phone has a way of stamping your GPS coordinates (GEO tags) into the picture so anyone with the right software can pull the coordinates and figure out where you live.  Where your children go to church, school, daycare, even their favorite park.

Here’s a great article that tells you how to disable geotagging on most phones:
