iPhone Privacy Issue | Why You Should Stop Sending Photos Via Text:

22-Nov-2021
By Ayunie

If you have an iPhone, you're probably well aware of the fact that every photo you take comes with all sorts of information— including creation date and your location, or better known as the metadata. While this information can prove to be useful at times, it can easily become a privacy issue whenever safety is concerned.

Whenever you text a photo, the receiver could precisely know your whereabouts, and it could potentially compromise your safety should it fall on the wrong hands.

2. Tap the info button on the bottom of the photo, or simply swipe up.

That's it! if you have the habit of sending random pictures to online friends/potential dates/strangers on the internet, it's best to have this feature turned off. 


You never know who could be stalking you!
