Did you know that there is secret information inside your photos that can reveal a lot about you?

There is some revealing information inside your photos that could tell strangers a lot about you – including where you live. It’s called EXIF Data, and while it’s useful to photographers, it could also contain the exact GPS coordinates of where you took the pic.

Here are some helpful EXIF tools:
