“If you ever send information that’s either crossed out or blacked out via text, well, the person receiving it on the other end just needs to open Photos,” he said.
From the Photos app, everyone just needs to tap the Edit button.
They can then select Exposure and slide it all the way to the maximum.
The same is also being done for Brilliance.
Any information hidden underneath will then be fully exposed.
One user commented, saying: “If they do ONE coat of the black marker, yes they can do this.
“If they do multiple layers, they can’t.”
Others have suggested that it is better to cut out sensitive things altogether.
It’s probably best not to send anything with important information on it – no matter how hidden you think it is.
