Brightspace Message: "File May Contain Geolocation Details"

When a student or faculty uploads a JPEG file anywhere on the Brightspace website, they may receive a message that says "File May Contain Geolocation Details." That message might make a user worry for their security or safety.

Solution

This message is an EXIF (exchangeable image file) data warning, according to Brightspace. It will not block the user from uploading the JPEG, and seems to show up when sharing files in a way where others may be able to save, edit, or delete them. It's a feature of the website, and users should be just fine to submit.

For more information, you can review this Brightspace documentation: Brightspace.
