Does anyone know if mastodon strips EXIF metadata out of uploaded pictures? 🤔🤔

@kelbie okay, looks like it's done - at least server side.

I'll check out the sources of the app I'm using, just to make sure it's done locally too. I might open a PR if that's not the case :)

@kelbie seems like Tusky just uploads the image (sometimes after a quick resize if it's too big). I'll work on that as soon as I have some spare time!

Hopefully with the Bitcoin community jumping into mastodon, some PR to improve its privacy/safety will come 💪

@afilini We also need to work on the private messaging on here. I assume its not private right now but I don't think a lot of people know that.

@kelbie @afilini I believe it is private, it just gets mixed into your feed.


@Dennis @kelbie it's "private" in the sense that other users cannot see them. But messages are saved in plain-text on the server.

Admins, hosting providers, governments, they all can read them if they want to..
