The Sun: To securely send photos via iPhone, remove metadata
Remove image metadata to securely send photos to iPhone. This is reported by The Sun.
Media experts said that every picture taken on an Apple smartphone has metadata. This is information that contains information about the file size, the date it was taken, and the location where the photo was taken. According to the authors, cybercriminals can use this data to, for example, find out the location of the victim.
In the article, the journalists named a way to securely send photos. Before you can share a photo, you need to go to the Photos app, select an image, swipe up and click the Edit button. In this section, it is worth choosing the item “No geolocation”. In this case, the uploaded photo will not have metadata.
To prevent the smartphone from recording shooting data, you need to go to the settings, select the “Privacy” section, go to the “Geolocation Services” subsection, find “Photos” and select the “Never” option.
Previously, experts have named ways to speed up iPhone charging. According to them, first of all, it is necessary to abandon the five-watt adapter, which was equipped with devices of the American brand until 2020.
