How Does Your Computer and Phone Betray You?

   Insurance lawyers have increasingly become interested in computer files and phones.  Why is that?

   It turns out that computers and phone files contain "Metadata," unseen computer files that provide information.  Let me give some examples:  Photo files will contain data showing both the time and, possibly, even the place where a picture was taken.  A Word document may contain a prior draft comments before deletions.  And, of course, phones will have a list of who you talked/texted and dates of your actions.

   What to do?  Nothing because you cannot change this. But, if you are going to play your hand smartly, you need to know this is out there.  See  www.Junelawyer.com
