Turn OFF that Location Services Settings for your Photos

You have probably seen that VIDEO about how scary it is to take our photos using our cellphones. And just like you, I am scared to death too. Imagine how easy it is for criminals to look for us just by looking at our photos that we have uploaded in our social media accounts. Some of my photos are posted publicly, because I need to and I want to, though I am not a celebrity or a famous person, I have my own reasons that is why I cannot simply upload it privately.

Here let me show you how I turned off my Location Services setting for my photos in my smart phone. Some people might think this is stupid (my HOW TO turn it off) but believe me, there are people who doesn’t know how to do it simply because they don’t care much about their cell phones, they just use it for making calls, for texting, for taking photos but they don’t check every thing in their phones, they don’t even know what is the IMEI number of their smart phones and doesn’t even care where they can find it.

First, you need to go to your iPhone’s Settings, it looks like this:

Then look for the PRIVACY. When you are in the privacy settings, tap that Location Services:

You can choose to TURN IT ALL OFF just by touching that circle beside the ON. But please, don’t because you need the location services when you use the Google Maps, and it might come handy when your iPhone gets stolen.

This might sound or look ridiculous for those tech savvy people out there, but for those who don’t know what to do, this might be of great help to you.

Christmas Wish #1 – New Cellphone

Today is the last day of November and tomorrow I will start my countdown for Christmas Eve. Moreover, I have Christmas Wishes for December and I would love to share it with my readers.

On top of my list is a new cellphone, its not that I don’t like the one I have now because I love it. I just want to own a blackberry phone for a change because I haven’t tried using one. The one I own now is the Samsung Corby II which is WIFI ready and small enough to fit in my pocket. I used to have NOKIA cellphones but I don’t like it anymore because it always hangs.

I want to own a blackberry cellphone because some of my friends invited me and wanted to add me in their BBM list which I don’t understand. In order to know more about it, I think I should have a blackberry phone.
