Geo what? So after a quick Google of geotagging I read this:
What is a geotag?
Geotagging is a technical term for storing the latitude and longitude of your current location with your photo. This data is collected by the GPS device in your phone or tablet and is accessible to Instagram if you grant permission.
If you'd like to turn this off, please consult your phone/tablet manufacturer’s instructions and settings.
To ensure that you are no longer allowing your photos to be geotagged do the following (Sorry this is for an iPhone user but I am sure you can figure it out on other phones as well!)
Go to Settings > Privacy > Location Services >
From here you can turn them off all together or you can go through your apps and select one of the following:
For Camera, Photos and Instagram I chose NEVER. Meaning I will no longer be able to tag certain locations on Instagram. I suppose if you still want to be able to tag some locations you can leave it on for Instagram but always have it off for photos.
So just a little eye opener on this Friday. Thank you again to Kelly for letting me know, mom to mom. Since my Instagram is public I really do appreciate the extra step to reach out to me telling me this was on. Since I had NO IDEA!
Happy Friday, be safe!!
