About this app

Scrambled Exif (pronounced eggsif) helps you remove the metadata in your pictures before you share them.

If you feel like it.

If you don't want the big Internet companies (or whomever) to know where your pictures were taken don't forget to remove the metadata from them before you share them.

To remove the metadata from a picture, simply share it like you'd normally do and choose Scrambled Exif. A moment later, the share 'dialog' will reappear. Now just share with the app you intended to share with in the first place.

Et voilà!

Required Android Permissions:

★ READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE to read the images other apps share with it.

Source Code

★ This app is open source. You can take a look at the code (and contribute if you feel like it) here:

Misc Stuff and Facts

★ Basically, Exif is used by jpeg, which is the format in which your Android camera saves pictures. If you want to know more about Exif, check the Wikipedia.

★ Scrambled Exif also renames the files (this can be disabled).

★ Please don't heavily rely on the data being deleted. Scrambled Exif does its job pretty well, but it could fail. Always double-check before you share.

★ It doesn't really scramble the Exif data, it deletes it. So the name is probably stupid. But I like it. The icon doesn't depict scrambled eggs either. So the icon is probably stupid. But I like it. And I also happen to be a huge fan of eggs. So this app doesn't only have a stupid name and an equally stupid icon, it is also my (non-stupid) tribute to eggs. Especially huevos fritos. Because I love them.

★ Have fun sharing your pics!

Really useful app! It does exactly what it says it does, and I think (literally) couldn't be any simpler or more straight-forward: share your pic -> select this app, which immediately strips all EXIF data then prompts again for where you'd like to shared the "cleaned" image. Files are optionally renamed... Absolutely zero network connections (data collection, advertising, or otherwise) are ever attempted. Search for "scrambled exif pro" to support the dev(s)!

This app is meant to be as minimal as possible. When you click "share" on something and pick Scrambled Eggsif, it will silently do its job and then the exact same share screen will pop up again - this time it's from Scrambled Eggsif though - and you pick the app you actually want to share to. It won't tell you "exif cleared" "success", "" que huevos! " or anything like that. It doesn't even suggest it did anything, so that way it's literally only one minor step extra in your routine.
