Security Breach for Dealers and Collectors

Numismatic Crime Information Center's Doug Davis reports how you could be giving away your exact location to criminals with a simple photograph.

Shooting simple photos from your smart phone or personal camera can lead criminals right to your location—with pinpoint accuracy using the Global Positioning System (GPS) satellites.

Many smartphones automatically geo-tag their photos by default. Users who prefer not to reveal their location should turn this feature off.

For more information, read Security Breach Dealers/Collectors; and/or contact Doug Davis at (817) 723-7231 or email him.
