Avoid Digital Stalking – Android

In my previous post I mentioned the ability to extract location information from the pictures you took using your iPhone.  I thought I’d take some time to show you how to protect yourself if you have an Android based device.  The instructions are similar except in an Android device you need to change the settings from within the Camera App.

  1. Start the Camera App and bring up the application menu.Droid Camera Store Location
  2. Select Store Location and make sure it’s set to OffDroid Camera Store Location Off

I’m sure the interface and the design of the App may be different depending on your exact Android device.  The screen shots I have above were taken from a Motorola Droid.  The principal is the same: protect yourself.
