How to remove camera data from image in Android [Tip]

ImageXEXIFXdata [1]Sharing photos are fun. However, you need to be extra vigilant. If you are still not aware about it, your photos can easily reveal your actual location as well as the type of device that you’re using. What does this imply? This simply implies that others can easily track you down if they want to and it definitely won’t be good especially if you’re the type who greatly values your privacy.

So, what’s the best solution? If you want, you can remove any significant EXIF data that’s been automatically attached to your photos. If you’re using Android, then here’s how you can remove the EXIF data from your photos right before sharing them to various social media and photo sharing communities such as Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and Twitter.
