Censor Barcodes When Sharing Pictures of Your Mail

In the rare event that you need to take a picture of some piece of mail, it's common practice to censor your address. If you do, though, be sure to block out the barcode as well. Often printed envelopes with your address on them will include a barcode similar to the one in the photo above. These codes typically include your address in its entirety. What's more, in some cases, they can be read easily. mailScan is an app for Android that reads these IMB (Intelligent Mail Barcode) codes and returns the information stored. It doesn't work on all codes, but it works on enough for it to be a concern.
