This publication describes methods of warning a user of a mobile device camera application of potentially dangerous locations and situations. In aspects, a danger warning manager on the mobile device acquires context signals (e.g., captured images, global navigation satellite system location information, social media history for a location) and analyzes these context signals to determine a level of risk. Upon determining that the user is potentially in danger, the danger warning manager causes the mobile device to present warning notifications to the user.
