Yes, you can be traced to where the photo was taken, if of course your thick as mince and dont think having your phone set to include the GPS location of the picture is stupid. You'll probably also be the sort of person who will complain the phone eats battery even though you never turn off the wifi, GPS, bluetooth and all the other bolox gubbins.
Its not the fault of the phone, and its not in any way a 'hack', if you take a picture with the location settings set to ON, and then post it on social media, then anyone who looks at that photo can find out where it was taken.
Not this callsign. The article doesn't worry me in the slightest as not being a ******* retard the first thing I do with a phone camera is disable the GPS, after all if I'm taking the photo I know where I am.
I read your post and considered it not beyond the reach of current technology, I then made use of a fantastic resource known as a "Search Engine". It's the future I tells ya.
