Dating apps are 'leaking' your location data

A new study on dating sites, shows us that the photos which are posted by users in their profile, can leak various information for the user to someone who knows how to see this information.

The research indicates that inside the pictures that someones take with his smartphone (or his camera), is "hidden" the coordinates (GPS), indicating in short the exact location where each photo was taken. According to the survey, 20 to 25% of dating sites do not remove the information from photos of their users, so someone can know where you are working, staying or even drinking your coffee.

However, as noted in the study, the "industry" of dating sites is serious about it and most sites will remove sensitive information soon.
