Posting Photos Online Could Pose Safety Risk [VIDEO]

That picture that your son just posted from the school gym? It can be traced. The picture of your daughter and her friends being goofy at a slumber party? It can be mapped.

You do it. I do it. Our kids are doing it – posting pictures online from our smartphones, but are we sharing more than just a funny photo? It seems that if you know what you’re looking for, you can pinpoint, on a map no less, the exact location where a photo was taken. That means that criminals and creepers can know exactly where you and your children, live, play, and even learn.

41 Action News out of Missouri, did a story explaining how it works, and how to set up your phone to protect the privacy and location of you and your loved ones. After checking my own smartphone, I learned that my settings were already set in a way to protect my photo locations.
