Hello everybody! A small change to the Upload Wizard is coming regarding EXIF geolocation
metadata, that will inform users about the risks of sharing the geolocation of their
images. You can find the whole discussion at Phabricator here: 
An audit conducted by the WMF Security Team earlier this year revealed that this kind of
data may pose privacy risks for Wikimedia editors, as bad actors may deduce (or try to
deduce) their likely location from their uploaded media.
The suggested measure to counteract this is to inform the uploader very clearly, through a
note in Upload Wizard, that such geolocation metadata will be collected and made public -
making it, in the end, an informed decision of the editor to upload the media or not. You
can find a proposed mockup here: 
This change will be rolled-out in the next few days, I will keep you updated on this. I am
here in case you have any questions or requests for more information.
