  • Fort Lauderdale, FL (1888PressRelease) July 28, 2014 - The Forbes Living TV show will look at family security, which may be jeopardized by all the photos that get posted on the popular social media websites. Smart phones contain GPS circuitry and when a photograph is taken on one of these devices, the GPS coordinates are usually included in the hidden metadata that becomes an integral part of the picture file. While this might sound innocent enough, the problem arises when children photograph themselves or each other, especially in the home environment. Clever hackers know how to get access to the metadata contained in a picture, so the family's home address is virtually stamped onto any of these photos. Even something as innocent as pet photographs or videos, if shot by a device that includes a GPS system, will contain this information. Uploading these images or videos to the internet could simply be announcing what the interior of a home looks like, what possessions are just stitting around and the address for getting there. As with anything, a little parental oversight of young people's web activities would be a good thing.

"Forbes Living is the ultimate guide to tomorrow's must-have products and solutions.
