Parent Support – Internet Safety Warning
I recently watched a widely circulated 2010 video on an internet safety security warning concerning Smartphone pictures of our children.
In the video, it was clear that an online predator could use the coded GEO location information that is part of every picture taken on the smart phone.
This location information can be decoded to track specifics.
These specifics include not only the home of a child, but even their room within the home.
Not only the playground, but what spot in that playground.
Parents… I believe that is too much!!!
Internet Safety Solution
There is a recommended solution mentioned at the end of the video. In case you don’t catch it:
Simply go into your phone
1. Change the “Privacy” settings,
2. Then go to Location services,
3. Click “Camera” and make sure it is in the off position.
