Though most users don’t know it, their Windows Phone 8 device is actually collecting information about them when they take photos and videos. Here’s how to turn off picture geotagging on Windows Phone 8, and why you might want to do so.

By default, Windows Phone’s camera application uses geotagging technology to automatically attach the exact longitude and latitude of where pictures and videos are captured. The feature isn’t necessarily a bad thing. With information, online picture services can sort and showcase your photos by where they are taken, without requiring you to manually tell them. For image sharing sites like Flickr, that’s a pretty great trade-off.
