    I got a spam message earlier about an iPhone app to blur registration plates on photos easily.

    screen568x568.

    If you want to hide your plates, remove the characters - if anyone wants to they can reverse the process enough to read them - or in the case of the above, you can probably read them still anyway!

    My car's got stolen plates on her, so I don't need to worry.

    Although I have done it myself in the past, why do we do it. Is it to prevent cloning?

    I don't see the point. They are on the front and back of my car everytime I drive down the street.

    I do it now as in the past people have used pictures I've posted on this forum to advertise their cars for sale - with my plate in show.

    Aye, a lot of my images rank highly on Google so I guess that's what made me a "target".
