Photo Anonymizer allows you to scrub digital or smartphone images of their identifying data via a free and simple process.
Photo Anonymizer allows you to remove metadata, GPS information, and alternate data streams from your images, making them safe when posted publicly on social media, etc. Having these types of identifying data intact on an image file provides a treasure trove of information for bad actors and ad-marketers, whether it be GPS information or metadata. Think about posting a picture of your home on the internet that contains GPS info and then posting a vacation picture with a timestamp embedded - someone could ascertain where you live and that you are not at home. Also, most internet browsers will store the source of an image download in the respective file making the IP address from which it was downloaded traceable. Photo Anonymizer lets you completely remove these alternate data streams to ensure that third parties can no longer the page you downloaded an image from.
Photo Anonymizer takes care of removing this data from images for you from a wizard-like app. Select the category for removal and remove the identifiers. It supports all common metadata standards, such as EXIF, DICOM, IPTC, and XMP.
