How to Remove Location from Instagram Photos on iPhone

Share your Instagram photos from iPhone without giving any detail of location, where you captured the photos. This tutorial tells you how you can save your privacy in the virtual world.

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.
