When you take pictures with smartphones or digital cameras, you might have heard about the term EXIF. EXIF or Exchangeable image file format provides all detailed information about the picture including location, cameras used, aperture values, focal length, ISO, exposure and more. When you right click a photo in Windows and select properties, you can see some of the EXIF information. There are many EXIF viewers available to get detailed information. But there are situations where you might not want to show EXIF data and in such cases you need to remove EXIF data from photos.
Sometimes, cyber attackers use GPS and device metadata to profile their victims and hence you might want to remove EXIF details. In such cases, the best free option is EXIF Cleaner 2.0. It is a freeware tool which allows you to instantly remove EXIF data from files.
ExifCleaner has a very simple interface and all you need to do is to drag and drop the image on to the interface.
