Default do you think Ebay can link you based on the Image information?

For example,
I take pics with my smartphone and upload them to google photos and download and upload them to ebay.

do these photos contain any information for tracking purposes ?

You can scrub the info very easily if it worries you.

But no, they don't really link based on that.

they have the exif data in them, however since thousands of people probably use the same brand and model of phone that you use, I doubt it'll link you in any way. You can use batch purifier if you're scared tho.

They certainly can link you if you use the same images, you used on another account.

Use batchpurifier to remove EXIF data on all images. Then use them across your accounts as you wish, there wont be any data on the images, so won't link you then.

You are very naive to think they won't link you via Images, they can even link you via images sent to your email, this is why we all turn off email images

Since we are talking about photos, They won't track you from the photos in your listings but they WILL ABSOLUTELY LINK YOU if you have your email/gmail set to download images.
