PhotoShield EXIF Manager

PhotoShield EXIF Manager


PhotoShield is a revolutionary app that manages EXIF and GPS location data attached to your photos. This unique system lets you share photos without inadvertently sharing the location it was taken. It is fully integrated with Android and works with your existing apps such as the Camera app and the Gallery app.

PhotoShield securely manages location data by cleaning it from your photos and archiving it until you need it. You can manually clean and archive the data, or you can let the app do it automatically whenever you take a picture. The archive enables you to restore location data that’s been deleted, should you want to find a picture’s location again.

It’s simple, free and easy!


Getting started:
1. Start PhotoShield and swipe the screen left and right to see that state of all of your photos
+ Red outline - photo has EXIF location data
+ Blue outline - photo EXIF has been archived by PhotoShield
+ Black outline - photo does not have EXIF location data and is not archived
2. Select Menu: Clean-All, all blue outlines are now red, all of your pictures are EXIF clean

How to confirm location data has been removed:
1. Open a photo in the standard Android Gallery app
2. Select Details or Show on Map (option not available when location data is clean)
3. Confirm that location is not displayed

Need to restore location data?
1. Long press a photo (blue outline) in the PhotoShield gallery app
2. Select "Restore”

Need to clean a single photo?
1. Long press a photo (red outline) in the PhotoShield gallery app
2. Select "Clean”

Need to disable Auto-Clean?
1. Start PhotoShield
2. Select the "Auto" shield icon. A red 'X' indicates Auto-Clean is disabled

App Permissions:
1. Boot complete - To support Auto-Clean, PhotoShield starts when your phone starts
2. Write external storage - PhotoShield will erase EXIF data from pictures
3. Internet access - PhotoShield uses an online Help page and Google Analytics

Disclaimer:
PhotoShield is not guaranteed to clean all of your phone’s pictures. PhotoShield can clean valid JPG files that it has access to and has write-privileges to, assuming that the device has enough free space to operate. Pictures that are hidden from PhotoShield cannot be cleaned. Some applications have the ability to create and distribute pictures in private memory that PhotoShield can’t access. Pictures taken with Android’s standard Camera application are stored in a public folder and will be cleaned by PhotoShield if the conditions above are met. PhotoShield requires a minimal amount of storage space, but will not operate on devices that don’t have any free space.

Would not scan sd card photos This is exactly what I needed/wanted. Worked great on local device memory, but would not find pics on the sd card. App crashed when I keyed in the sd card directory as the default path to try and force it to scan it. Almost there... would pay for this app if the above is ever corrected. Samsung Galaxy Note II running 4.3 on AT&T
