If you enjoy capturing moments during demonstrations, this tool can potentially be a lifesaver. Introducing Image Scrubber, a powerful tool that removes metadata from your photos and blurs faces and sensitive information. In this article, I will guide you on effectively leveraging this tool to protect your online privacy.
Imagine being present at a protest and photographing a group of people. Some individuals may prefer not to be identified. Thankfully, with Image Scrubber, you can easily anonymize these photos with just a few clicks.
Here’s how it works:
- Visit the Image Scrubber website.
- Click “Open” to select the photo you want to anonymize.
- Utilize the paint bucket and blur tools to conceal faces and other identifiable details.
- Save the anonymized image by clicking on “Save.”
By following these simple steps, you can share your demonstration photos (or any other photos) while safeguarding the privacy of your friends and fellow participants.
One of the most remarkable features of Image Scrubber is its offline functionality. The entire processing and anonymization occur directly in your browser, ensuring that no data is stored or sent to remote servers. This allows you to use the tool securely, even when you’re abroad without a reliable internet connection.
Here are a couple of ways to use Image Scrubber offline:
- Load the page on your phone, add the tool to your home screen, and activate airplane mode before opening images.
- Alternatively, unzip the project zip from Github and open the index.html file in your browser.
