How to Disable Location Information on Windows Phone Photos

Recently, I got a question from a friend on Facebook about how to disable the saving of location information on photos taken on a Windows Phone.  After some quick tapping through my Lumia, as I remember turning off the settings previously, I found the setting and am documenting it here.

  • Launch the Settings application, you know that gear shaped tile, on your phone
  • Swipe to the right to the applications menu

  • Scroll down and launch the photos + camera settings


  • Uncheck the “Include location info in pictures I take” setting
  • Easy configuration of the camera… I would have expected to be able to access this configuration from the “photo settings” application bar button in the camera application, but this is a good second choice location for the settings.
