    Just received an e-mail from my sister regarding smart phones and how easily you are tracked if you post pictures..
    Here is the link..maybe some of you want to be cautious and warn your children and grandchildren.



    Pretty wild. I am now glad my phone is a "dumb" one.


    Subject: Smart Phone Pictures of Kids




    IMPORTANT


    Please take a moment to see this. It illustrates how simple pictures of our kids on our smartphones can be traced so people who want to know where they live, go to school, play etc. can easily find out. FYI


    You will need access to YouTube so you may have to watch it at home.

    The "You Tube video" shows you how to disable the access so that others cannot find you.

    You can tell your phone not to track where you are. I surely don't want to have that info available to the wrong people! :shock:
