About Discretion

Discretion provides extra privacy features for anyone who posts photos on Social Media. Such as masking faces, removing metadata, removing hidden layers, and anonymising the file name.

Can automatically add masks over faces. The masks can be either simple shapes, rectangular or circular, for a professional look. Or emoji masks, for a more fun, less formal look. Masks can be added, changed or removed. Nothing is fixed until you share the photo.

Removes unnecessary metadata from the photo. The data that might otherwise provide all sorts of personal tracking information to your social media platform. For more detail, you can view the removed metadata in the special Privacy Report for each photo.

The Privacy Report also shows you if there were any extra hidden layers in the image file (which it removes) or if the file is a Live Photo with an added video (which is also removed).

Filenames can be overlooked when considering photo sharing privacy. Discretion renames the photos with nondescript two digit names (like “01.jpeg”).

Discretion does not watermark your images.
