    How to prevent android phone from adding location to photos?

    Whenever I take photos through my Android phone, I can view GPS location along with them. I find these photos awkward for setting wallpapers or profile pictures. What should I do to make this device stop adding location?

    Re: How to prevent android phone from adding location to photos?

    As a first step, enter into the home page of your phone. Hit the ‘Menu’ button afterwards and wait for the menu to come up on the screen. Locate ‘System Settings’ option from that menu and tap over it once. After getting into the ‘Settings’ screen, navigate through the ‘Personal’ section and hit the ‘Location Services’. This will redirect you to the ‘Locations Services’ settings. Go through those settings and find out ‘Share picture location’ item with a checkbox at the right side. Clear of that checkbox by making a single tap on it.
