Location Services

“Geotagging,” or linking GPS coordinates with your photos and online posts, is often turned “on” as a preset on mobile devices. Be very careful how you utilize this feature. This information can give criminals the tools they need to track or rob you. For example, say you take a photo of a monument on your vacation, post it online and caption it on social media: “Just took this photo of something I have always wanted to see in person.” By doing this, you have just signaled to anyone watching your account that you are away from home. Understand the risks because safety and security should always come first.
