Whenever you take a picture, additional metadata is saved in the image file. Most smartphones do not inform you about this.

Metadata can look like this:

 🕑 On which day was the picture taken, and at which time?

 🗺️ And where exactly?

 📷 Which camera or which smartphone was used?

 🔧 And which camera settings were used?

 📝 Notes of the photographer or the camera?

 📌 More and more often, even exact GPS coordinates are saved in your photo.

Metadata is sometimes very useful—for instance when sorting holiday photos. But as soon as you share photos with others via social media, all this information is visible publicly. Data collectors and stalkers would possibly be able to discover your place of residence or workplace from the metadata or draw conclusions about your daily routine. Tracking services could create more comprehensive advertising profiles and sell your data to other organizations.

With our app, you can easily view all that data, remove it entirely, and then share the anonymized photo directly! That way you stay anonymous and safe in internet, while your friends can still admire your cute cat.

Happy sharing! 😽

To decode the secrets, run:

cd secret
gpg --quiet --batch --yes --decrypt --output secrets.tar secrets.tar.gpg
tar -xf secrets.tar
cd ..

To encode the secrets, run:

cd secret
tar -cf secrets.tar --exclude=secrets.tar --exclude=secrets.tar.gpg --exclude=.gitignore .
gpg --symmetric --cipher-algo AES256 --output secrets.tar.gpg secrets.tar
