What is "geotagging" and should I be concerned about it?
Geotagging is a tool on smartphones and some digital cameras that identifies the location of where a photo was taken. Some see it as a great feature to identify sites they visited.
But consumers are being warned about using photos with geotags to post online because thieves sometimes use the longitude and latitude information to track people. For example, combined with a social networking update, the geotagged photos you post can tell the location of your home and when you are not there.
The website Icanstalku.com warns that geotagging often has been automatically enabled on smartphones.
