image

The Photos application has a feature to display the location where your photos were taken on a map. But be careful, this location data can be recovered by unscrupulous Internet users when sharing an image on social networks. Fortunately, the iPhone has an option to share a photo without the location data..

Remove location metadata from photos

You may not know it, but when you take a photo with your iPhone, iOS (the mobile operating system of your Apple smartphone) automatically saves a whole series of data with the image. This is called EXIF ​​data.

Among these metadata we find various information such as the time at which the photo was taken, the make and model of the device used for the shooting as well as the camera settings. But that's not all..

The iPhone's camera app also has a built-in GPS system. Once the shot is taken, the system will add the GPS location of the location where the shot was taken to the EXIF ​​data.

This is not without danger for your privacy. Indeed, imagine that you share on the internet a photo taken in your garden. You probably wouldn't want people on the internet to know where you live..
