It’s Not a Good Day to Be Path

Having just settled last year’s contact data controversy for $800,000, Jeffrey Paul1 has found another privacy shortcoming in the app:

Path’s iOS app […] will use the embedded EXIF tag location information from photos in the iOS Camera Roll to geotag your posts, even when you’ve explicitly disabled Location Services for the Path application.

Path seems to take privacy as seriously as I take their app’s chances of continued success.
