Default Hiden info on your pictures

Iv been told about hidden info on your camera pics that you use on ebay

I think its called Metadata How do you check that your pics are carrying this info

I tried looking at pic then the file then the properties but it didn't have any info about my camera or location or name it just had the resolution and pixel count it did have the computer name which was just a very common boys name

will this be ok to post on eBay as iv used it before on my old account


I use a samsung smart phone

If you take a picture on a Digital Camera...it has metadata, Smart Phones are worse, they have GPS location. So you might as well start stripping all your images.

No it won't be ok. Your accounts will be immediately linked.

You can also check your photo metadata details online in here:

online metadata and exif viewer

Be sure to remove all those informations before posting any picture on eBay.

The GPS geolocation won't show, requires a special program.

You are not deleting nor overwriting metadata this way. They will still be there.

Is eBay really using the special program to determine gps location?? If they are, I'm sure it's just for accounts already under review by a special department, I don't see them scanning all pics for gps...

This is paranoia to 10000000x degree...eBay is not going to track an image that you open up in your stealth email, and then download onto your desktop, which was originally sent through your smartphone.
Do you realize how ridiculous that sounds?

It's ebay..not the fbi

First, your wrong.....images in emails from ebay contain "beacons", go look it up.

Second, what the OP is talking about is the images used for their listing, Images from smartphones contain geotags which can be used to pinpoint your exact location with special software.

And do you think ebay (a company that has about a billion other things to worry about ) is REALISTICALLY going to go through the effort of tracking your geotag to trace exactly where you are?

Gotta agree with this guy. I've been doing this for years with all of my accounts and not once have I been linked or limited as a result of it. You guys are really paranoid imo.

Plus what about when you randomly download images from the web, like I do for many of my listings, do they link ALL of those people with the exact same images? Ofcourse not folks.

I use

notepad.net (the program) it will overwrite the details. Have been doing it for over 7 years with dozens of accounts... No issues ever...

You can try it, the original information will not be there. Have checked it many times. and its 100% free and only takes seconds...
