Don't Give Away Your Phone's Location with Your Camera's GPS

We all love our smartphones right?  And one of the best things about your smartphone is the camera.
Whether it's Twitter, Instatgram, or Facebook we are pushing more photos out to sites into the cloud than ever before.
The problem with all of this? Your phone is probably giving away your exact location due to embedded GPS data.
Earlier this year, John McAfee had his location given away while he was on the run by something as simple as a photo published with an iPhone.
If giving away your position is something you'd rather not do, there is a great article on the Wired website.
Check it out here as it has all the information you need to disable GPS tagging your  smart phone photos. Whether it's Apple or Android this article will have you covered.
