SCRAMBLE YOUR PHOTOBUCKET FILES WITH CAUTION!!!

Post  shedder on Tue May 26, 2015 3:27 pm

It was recommended that I scramble my pic files to lessen the likelihood of all this Fraud crap...So I did and now every pic I have ever put on any social media prior to the scramble is unrecognizable  Rolling Eyes.  Well, at least I saved myself from the slow cyber crooks  alien

Did  photobucket send out some kind of  warning? I never got one, but then I have not used my PB account  for  a long time, sill have 109 pages of photo's over there  but   I still did not get any warning from them scratch

Its in the profile under settings in the privacy tab:

HMMM now my photos don't post...


"File Name Scrambling
To protect your privacy, we recommend that you select the options to scramble both future and past upload file names. However, if you intend for your photos to be public or used for business purposes, we recognize that you may not want to scramble."

Wonder if I can unscramble  affraid What a Face

NOPE once scrambled there is no way to revert the files back...
going thru a bunch of Q&A I find in big red letters
this stinking statement that should have been placed right under the statement about File scrambling..."not you may not want to scramble..."


This would have worked there is no way I would have scrambled my files. #$@&!!!  

If you scramble your filenames for previous uploads, all links in your account will be broken! Your images will no longer display where they are linked out, and there is no way to unscramble the filenames.

But now they don't work at all even when I go back and try to re-establish old post like it says to do after the scramble.

And that is exactly why I never worry about that kind of stuff. We do get notices all the time about changing passwords for different things. I never bother to do it.
