What is EXIF data?

EXIF stands for Exchangeable Image File Format. It's a standard for storing supplemental metadata in digital photos. Each time you take a picture, your phone or camera saves a file (typically a JPEG) to your device's storage. This file contains all the data dedicated to the actual picture (pixels which you can see). Besides that, it also includes a notable amount of supplemental metadata. Such metadata can hold date, time, camera settings, copyright information.

Sounds pretty routinely, right? Let's go to the interesting part. EXIF data can also contain sensitive information, such as geolocation. All smartphones record GPS coordinates when you take a picture. So if you upload a photo with metadata to social media or send it in messenger, others can collect many details from it.

It's not a big deal in most cases. But sometimes, you better remove the EXIF metadata before sharing your photos.

Frequently asked questions

Do all photos have EXIF data?

No. Some phones or cameras don't record EXIF info. Some image formats like GIF don't support EXIF data. Graphic editors and special software could remove metadata as well. And there's no way to find whether the metadata was there originally.

Can I find where the picture was taken?

Yes, but only if the picture has GPS location data. Upload it to Jimpl to know. You can turn off geotagging in phone settings. In this case, photos will not include GPS data.

Is there a way to see hidden or blurred out parts of the photo?

No, EXIF data doesn't change what you see in the photo. If some parts of the picture are blurred out or hidden by a censor block, you can't restore them. Photo metadata doesn't modify actual pixels that are on the image.

Does EXIF data guaranteed to be true?

No, you can't rely on EXIF info to be 100% true. It's possible to edit photos metadata using various available software. There's no way to ensure that what you are looking at is original image metadata or metadata edited by someone else.

Is it safe to upload images to Jimpl?

We respect your privacy and never share your uploads with others. We store them temporarily for the only purpose: extract and visualize metadata. We delete all files within 24 hours after upload.
