- iOS 7 iPhone & iPad Privacy Location Settings

It's ironic that in iOS 7 the Privacy settings are hidden away where they're hard to find. If you've just upgraded your device with the new iOS 7, you'd better pay attention to the Privacy Location Settings on your device.

Location Services uses the iPhone or iPad's GPS along with crowd-sourced Wi-Fi hotspots and mobile phone mast locations to work out where you are at any given time. For the sake of your privacy security, you're highly recommended to reset the Privacy Location Settings which are so hidden away that you'd hardly know they're there:

Settings > General > Privacy > Location Services

- Geotags of Photos on iPhone

Did you know that the iPhone camera app stores the exact GPS location with each photo that you take? The storage of location based data, in the form of Latitude and Longitude in side of images is called Geotagging; essentially tagging your photograph with geographic location.

As Geotag metadata is invisible, not editable and is sent along with each photo you take and post to the web, which will totally compromise your location privacy.

Settings > Privacy > Location Services > Camera > Off

Now you've already successfully remove hidden privacy data from iPhone.


If you really want to protect your privacy from prying eyes, merely reset your device and removing geotag from photos is far from enough. No worry! You just need third-party software called PhoneClean, an ultimate iOS cleaning tool that gives promises of privacy security for your iPhone iPad.
