 Beware of geotags in pictures

An article published in the New York Times website recently warns about the dangers of geotags (location info) in pictures you take - What the Internet Can See From Your Cat Pictures. (this is relevant to reptiles too...) - Link

In a nutshell, if you take pictures of your reptiles with a smartphone that has geotagging enabled and post them on the web, strangers can learn where you live by looking at the location info embedded in the pictures.

Info about disabling geotagging: Link
Tools for removing metadata from pictures (including geotags): Link
