Many of us love our smartphones: our iPhones, our Android phones, our Blackberrys.

However, sometimes we get caught up in the cool new technology (Who doesn’t love apps!?), and forget there can be potentially negative implications in our personal lives.

For example, NBC News recently ran a story on smartphone pictures and privacy risks.

NBC News demonstrated examples of how taking pictures of your children and loved ones publically divulge the location of exactly where those pictures were taken, leading to a breach of privacy.

Obviously, this is a concern considering once a picture is posted publically online, potential predators have easy access to locations your children may frequent.

Fortunately, simple changes to your GPS settings can disable this type of tracking.
