The reporter suggested a solution – to disable Geotagging on your photos. But by doing so, you also lose the ability to organise your photos by location.
A much easier way to protect yourself is to use ScramPhoto. You’ll still be able to take your photos with Geotags and to organise your albums easily, but the location data just won’t be shared with the outside world. You can also protect your photos with watermarks and copyright messages. And you can get ScramPhoto for free!
