Taking photos with your iPhone or iPad is super easy and fun. However, iOS devices will record your current location when taking pictures, and that option is set by default. We are all trying to protect our privacy the best way we can, so deactivating this option, known as geotagging, sounds like a brilliant idea, right?

It is a simple thing to do. We will show you how to turn off geotagging on iOS devices; follow a few simple steps listed below, and you will be done in no time.

How to turn off geotagging on iOS devices

To disable geotagging on your iPhone or iPad, follow these steps:

  • Navigate to Settings
  • Click on Privacy
  • Click on Location Services
  • Tap Camera
  • Under “Allow location access,” choose Never.

Once you change this, the location of the videos and photos won’t be recorded.

It is advisable to go through all the other apps in Location Services and disable this option for the apps you don’t want to access your location. If your kids have an iPhone or iPad, it would be a good idea to do the same on their devices.

These days, you have to make some efforts to protect your privacy, and turning off geotagging is an excellent place to start.
