Exclamation Security alert for mobile phone cameras.

I have just seen this warning posted by the Allen Graham Charity on FB and really feel i needed to pass this on as this is quite scary :-

All you have to do is to turn geo-tagging off or, alternatively, erase location data from photos.

Thank you Eleanor, that's exactly why I posted the message which came from a locally well known and respected source.

I'd rather a bit of scaremongering than be ignorant of a dangerous threat.
And why is a perfectly well intentioned charity website 'dubious'? Hmm

If you had bothered to click on the link you would notice that it has nothing to do with any charitable website. It's just some random blog which has a sensationalist U.S. news clip on it.

Personally, I wont be losing any sleep over this issue.

Siren the link was provided by the Allen Graham Charity which does sterling work to help the underprivileged children over here. Of course you are entitled to your opinion but it would be nice if you voiced it a little less rudely .
