    Places (location information) only works if you give iPhoto pictures that have GPS data attached by the camera you took the picture with or by adding location information to the picture by hand in iPhoto or a program that edits the metadata of the image.  In the case of images with GPS data attached, that location information is part of the image.  Anyone that has that image can see the location data embeded in the image.  Nothing to do with iPhoto.

    Any GPS enabled camera including most current smart phones include GPS with the photo - iPhoto has nothing to do with it - it only shows the data that your camera palaces inside of the photo

    so how can i use iMovie on my ipad with out sharinf locations and all that?, it says i have to do it or i will not be able to even use the app i paid for, apple app, you say appple has nothing to do with this?

     

    apple also forces many other developers to modify their apps so they have to turn on locations or the apps will NOT WORK, unless you know a work around i can not agree with you, maybe you do so why not explain, can you use imovie with out having to be forced to share locations of your own personal videos?

    This doe not involve iPhoto in any way - for iMovie questions ask in the iMovie forum - for iPad question ask in te iPad forum - and you might want to rephase the question - it is not clear to me except that it does not involve iPhoto for the Mac

    Again nothing to do with iPhoto for the Mac - maybe you don't klnow how to use the IOS apps - in settings you can disable locations services for any application - and location services is not uses unless you approve it - so I again have no idea what you are actually getting at but in any case this is not the place to address it - this is the place to address iPhoto questions

     

    And my comments are only related to iPhoto as is clear in it!

    It's really, really simple. If you think your data is compromised in any way, don't use the apps, don't use the Internet and/or  don't use the computer.

     

    But stop peddling your ravings as some kind of fact.

     

    iOS devices do not force users to share locations at all. Any time an app wants to use your location the OS asks you for permission. You can decline.

     

    If you think that Apple is uploading thumbnails from your computer then where's the bandwidth this is using? Uploading 45,000 thumbnails is not trivial. People on dial-up or poor quality broadband would stop this is an instant. And why would Apple want thumbnails of my photos of doorknobs? What purpose would they have? 

     

    Apple does not make it impossible to delete anything. Not only can you delete everything you can overwrite the data too.

     

    I fear your grasp of what went on in Congress is somewhat at odds with reality. For a start, what "millions of users" raised concerns to Congress? They were the quietest "millions" I never heard of.

     

    So, while you may wish Larry to put his personal opinion aside, in return you're going to have to be truthful and cite supporting documentation for your ravings.

    your the one who said i may not understand how to use my IOS apps, i am saying the arguments your holding up against anyone concerned about their privacy are more fictitious because your saying i should disregard any wrong doing with another app, any apps used for free is ones own problem even if the app was a scandalous front to collect data

     

    explain why your arguing that people should not be concerned , you can not delete iphoto albums from your iphone or ipad, only the ones you took currently, you can not shut off places or faces, this means the apps can also work in the background for other things

    Please, I understand that your grasp of reality is tenuous, but we're going to need punctuation if we're going to get anywhere.

     

    Bluntly, your first paragraph is gibberish. You second is pretty much gibberish too but there are a couple of things we can glean that are incorrect:

     

    you can not delete iphoto albums from your iphone or ipad

     

    Yes you can.

     

    you can not shut off places or faces

     

    As I said above: If you believe this data is compromised, just don't add any. If there is no data there, no one can access it, right? How simple is that?

     

    And if that's not good enough for you, just don't use iPhoto, and iPhone or anything else.

    nope, i cant delete any photos from library's i synced using itunes with my iphones or ipads, only the camera roll.

     

    and if anyoen programs a smap network it does not matter if you add data to that app or if it is sitting on your drives, picaso is even sneakier, they ask people to share photos from just their whole photo librarys and main drive or all the drives, imaging, JUST, and no other option, ciao

    Terence Devlin Level 10 Level 10 (123,800 points)

    You need to learn how to use your phone.

     

    What's a "smap network"? What does not matter? What has "picaso" to do with this?

     

    But much more importantly, explain if you will why you claim to be so worried about this but you still use iPhoto and iPhones?

    Spam, data mining, etc

    Picaso is also another photo app for free online provided by google, you are arguing with yourself, you know very well why Congress called apple, facebook and google to the table in the past, the humiliation is that they are still data mining, still doing things until laws are to be passed to protect innocent people, through third parties, maybe even you, and i do know how to use my phone, no one here has explained how to  shut off faces, places, or use apps with out been forced to share GPS locations, the only solution is DONT USE IT AT ALL, why not just tell people dont BUY the products at all since these apps should be disregareded if they are missrepresenting themselves as free, after all information has a price tag.

     

    Anyonewho thinks a company, goverment or otehr beuracracy is more important then respecting people's rights need to hget a life, this goes to show who are the real dangerous ones out there locked in their bed rooms with a computer, working online.

     

    and who said i am worried, the debate here is people on these forums are paid to be here and stand for the same reasons they exist, they are not real people, are you, how many times a day do you post on these  threads for free, why, sounds mental if true, sorry

    Picassa is an app made by Google. No I don't know very well why Congress did anything. I do note that you come on here and say things like Apple is uploading thumbnails of your Photos to their servers, but cannot produce a shred of proof - or even a reason why - they would do such a thing. When challenged on this you then simply don't respond but go off with another wildly inaccurate statement. Now you're on about an app that has nothing to do with Apple, which, like iPhoto, you are not required or forced to use. If you don't like the app, the company or its policies then don't use it. If you don't like the computer, the company or its policies, don't use it. But don't come on here posting acusations that you canot support. Don't come on here telling untruths, You're raving about security while still using these apps and devices that you claim are so insecure means you're either a troll or just not very wise. I can't make up my mind which it is.
