The experts explained that every picture taken with Tim Cook’s smartphones contains metadata. This is information about the file size, the date it was taken, and the location where the photo was taken. According to experts, attackers can use this data to, for example, find out the location of a potential victim.
However, there is a way to protect yourself from this kind of action. Before you can share a photo, you need to go to the Photos app, select an image, swipe up and click on the Edit button. In this section, it is worth choosing the item “No geolocation”. In this case, the submitted photo will not contain metadata.
To permanently prohibit the smartphone from recording this 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.
