REMOVE LOCATION DATA FROM PHOTOS

Every photograph on modern devices embeds a GPS location by default that can be used to locate the person taking the video. Learn how to remove that data below.

1. Completely Turn Off Geotagging for Photos On iPhone

All that is required to completely Turn Off the Geotagging feature on your iPhone or iPad is to go to prevent Location Data Access for the Camera App on your iPhone.

1. Open Settings on your iPhone > scroll down and tap on Privacy.

2. On the Privacy screen, tap on Location Services.

3. On Location Services screen, scroll down and tap on Camera.

4. On the next screen, tap on Never to completely Turn OFF Geotagging for Photos on your iPhone.

This setting will prevent Geotags from being recorded on all photos and videos that you take using the Camera on your iPhone.

2. Selectively Enable or Disable Geotagging For Photos on iPhone

Instead of completely disabling Geotagging for Photos, you can make the Camera App on your iPhone to prompt you to Enable or Disable Location information on a case by case basis.

1. Go to Settings > General > scroll down and tap on Reset.

2. On the Reset screen, tap on Reset Location & Privacy option.

3. If prompted, enter your Passcode in order to make this change.

The above steps will Reset Location and Privacy Settings for all the Apps on your device.

Now when you use the Camera on your iPhone, you will be prompted to either Enable or Disable Location information, every time you open the Camera App on your iPhone.
