If you’re constantly posting up pictures and sharing them with the world, you should be prepared to face the consequences. An app for the desktop computer called Creepy is a “geolocation information aggregator”. It has the ability to sniff out the locations that a person has been, and where they like going just by sniffing out data on the internet. Almost everything online has some location data attached to it – Tweets have geolocations, so do Foursquare check-ins, let’s not forget the location information on the EXIF data found on photographs that are uploaded to Twitpic, Yfrog, and even Flickr. Creepy scours the internet for all this location data and uses it to generate a history of where a person has been, and presents you with a map marking all the locations your target has been, making it extremely easy to find out where somebody frequents. The perfect companion for a stalker. As usual, don’t post up anything you don’t want people to know about you – everything on the internet that’s unsecured is pretty much accessible by anyone. Creepy is available online as a free download, you can give it a try – you’d be amazed at what you can find.
