How to Scrub the EXIF Data from Photos on Your Android Phone

Postby danetc » Mon Feb 11, 2013 5:05 pm

There are plenty of ways to get rid of the info on your computer, but what about your Android smartphone? If you're an Android user, there's an app called Image Privacy that strips the EXIF data from your photos before you share them in a message or post them to social media sites.

It does so by adding a simple, unobtrusive option to your phone's Share menu. When you install it, you'll still have all your normal sharing options, but there will be an added option to Strip metadata before sharing.

You'll still have a copy of the original photo, and a clean copy will be saved with "_stripped_" added to the title. From there, just choose to share the new photo and it will be sent or uploaded to your channel of choice.
