The feature that facilitates you becomes a headache at times. There are many social media apps available, and most of them have a common feature of photo sharing. Setting itself apart from the group is Instagram, which is undoubtedly the most popular photo sharing app. The app is solely dedicated to sharing pictures and nothing else; video sharing is a rare sight on Instagram.
While sharing their photos, people also tend to show the location, i.e. where the photo or photos were taken. This can be a useful feature as others get to know that you spent your vacation in a certain place. But this can open the doors for others to attack your privacy; especially for the employees who furnish convincing excuses (what a paradox!) to their boss for going on a vacation.
If you have enabled this feature of location, you should remove it from your Instagram photos immediately, just to secure your privacy. Quite often, culprits who are engaged in the bad business of stealing goods can easily spot your residence from the photos and location shared by you. This can be more dangerous for you and your family. So it is advisable to remove the location from your Instagram photos on your iPhone. We are sure that you have already removed location services from your Facebook and Facebook Messenger apps.
