Why Should You Disable Location Pins From Your Social Media Posts?

September 12, 2017

Are you a social media buff? Do you love the check-ins on social media post? Are you allured by the fact of sharing your photographs with location? Have you enabled the location pins of your social media posts? Well, it is a probability that you have been following a perfectly inapt procedure!

Are their friends who continue to know beforehand about your location? Are there always the relatives who complement you on the choice of restaurants or city of travel, without you letting them know? In either of the scenarios, it is pertinent for you to disable the location pins of your social media posts!
So, are you really not taking this seriously? Are you trying to take it for granted? Well, you might need to read on, to take this into a more serious consideration:

You are giving the key to your home to burglars

Yeah, it is right. You are posting a picture without disabling the location, or when you are chatting on personal messenger. In either of the case, you are sharing the most private information to criminals on a digital tray. They will be well aware of your whereabouts and can cause harm to you, your home or your family.


It is a high probability that you have tagged a friend in a post. There is again a possibility that the post is being witnessed by someone who is not your friend but in his or her friend list. It can lead to some real issues, considering the post might contain your pics, some message or a check-in location. Think about it. How much are you sharing with the world?

It reveals people about your social status

It is really amazing when you are able to live in a five-star hotel during your travel. But, isn’t it also telling the world about your financial status. It can attract much of the unwanted attention.

Your private life is not private

This is the biggest drawback. Your private life comes into the eyes of almost every individual. It is not between families. Whether it is your birthday or your birth year, the posts reveal way too much about your life.

It bespeaks about your daily routine

You may be hanging out with your friends at a particular restaurant all the time. But, it is your space. Every individual who is connected through the social media with you does not need to know this. Hence, make sure to not keep the posts private and disable the location pins.

You can be a newlywed couple; an individual soon to get married or married for 15 years, your private life is yours. You really have no idea how malicious people out there are. You have to protect your family. You have to protect yourself. And, most pertinent of all you have to value this one life Almighty has gifted you!
So, share on social media, but be careful! Be very careful!
