Hidden Metadata in Photos & Copyrights

Your photo / image not only contains picture information but also metadata which may expose private and personal information. Such information may be used for tracking you or forensic purposes

Hidden metadata Concerns:
Hidden metadata may expose private information such as the location where the photo was taken, when the photo was taken, the type of camera used along with the hardware unique identifier, authoring details, embedded thumbnails and other content. Do you know what metadata is contained within your photos / images?

Metadata Tracking:
Depending on where you share your photos online it is possible that metadata is added or modified to track your photos even outside of the portal where the photo was uploaded and shared.

Copyright Issues:
Photographers spend a lot of time taking good photos. Adding copyrights and author acknowledgments helps declare ownership / origins of the photo. This may be achieved via hidden metadata within the photo and / or via watermarking.

CHECK YOUR OWN PHOTOS?
You can check your own photos to see what information has been exposed via hidden metadata and check authoring and copyrights.
