Geo-location is something that helps to keep a record of the places where you take photos while travelling. However, it may sometimes be a threat to your privacy too like in case you lose your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch and then your location is tracked by somebody through your online pictures. In such cases it becomes necessary to turn off the GPS geo-location in your iPhone.
Now the question is – “how to turn off iphone photos gps geo-location?”
First of all you will need to select the location for the camera app the first time it’s launched. When you no longer require it, you can deselect it and turn it off. After that you need to follow the steps given below:
Tap Location services

You may be worried about the photos already taken with your iDevice which you want to share but which you fear may contain your location information. There’s a solution for that too. All you have to do is to wipe them clean before posting and here’s how to do it:
Find the picture you want to share
Take a screen shot of the photo (here’s how).
Go to the screen shot
Share the screen shot instead
Your location information is good but it might turn hazardous if it goes in the wrong hands. So you need to be extra careful. The screen shots on your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch are quite big for Facebook, Twitter or the other social networks you may be using. Therefore, if you choose any image to share, you even share the GPS coordinates of your and your family’s location.
