How to delete the location of the photos you share

When you send a photo using any type of messaging application, you should know that the image contains the location where the capture was taken . This means that you are sending photos to everyone with your real location. Of course this is no problem if the image is sent to friends or family, but what if you are selling some object on some second hand page? Then everyone can see an image that says your location, and if the capture is in your house, anyone can know where you live .

Actually this is very paranoid and maybe we do not need to worry so much about this, but it may interest us, since nobody has to know where we live . So without further ado, then I'll teach you how to remove this location from the photos you take with your iPhone, iPad or even Mac .

Turn off entire photo location

From the settings of your iPhone or iPad, you can go to "Privacy", "Location services" and "Camera", from here disable the location of data in each photo. Keep in mind that this means that you will not be able to see your photos on a map and look for "Photos in Barcelona" will no longer work , since the mobile will not know where the photos were taken.

Use the Metapho application

Photo & Video

If we want to continue having the functions of location of photos, we can install Metapho. With this application we can edit the metadata, eliminating the location of the photos that interest us without compromising the rest .
Delete metadata on Mac

Here it is much simpler than in iOS since macOS does it automatically. With automatic I mean that you must deactivate a box so that it stops sending the data of the location . Quite simple and functional.

To disable this we must go to the iCloud settings on our Mac, then you will notice a box in which it says: Metadata or Metadata. Turning off any photos you share from your iPhone or iPad to your Mac will incorporate metadata , including location.

If iOS would incorporate a function equal to that of Mac, everything would be much simpler, but Apple will have its reasons not to. Maybe they just have not thought about it.
