    Default PSA: Location Data and Photos

    Some devices (such as smart phones) include GPS coordinates in the metadata embedded in digital photographs. This feature can be turned off on these devices. To learn how to do this, search for "turn off camera location" and the brand of your device to learn how. If, for some reason you want location left on, you can edit the metadata for individual photos. To learn how to do this, search for "edit photo metadata" and your operating system.

    Do not assume that any platform you upload photos to automatically removes location data from your photos.

    Thank you for this. I am a geezer and had no idea this was the case. Mine is turned off now.

    Turning off all gps related funtcions, is one of the first things that I do, when I get a new phone.

    Same here. I turn it off as soon as I've reached my destination.

    Is there any way of knowing if photos already taken have the location data?

    On a computer you can look at the properties for the image file and it will be in the details.
