    To avoid disclosing personal information like location you need to strip the metadata from the images before sharing them. On Windows and macOS you can do this with a few mouse clicks. On Android and iOS you can remove the location data but you will need third party apps to strip other metadata. Search for EXIF editor or EXIF eraser on the play store/App Store to find relevant apps.

    A Google search on ‘how to remove metadata from photos’ will bring up numerous helpful articles. Here is one — Protect yourself: How to remove metadata from photos It goes through the process step by step for different platforms and recommends phone apps as well.
