Is there a way to make photo location private?

Hi all,

I like sharing my running route and taking photos. Some photos I don't want to share the location data. 

Is it possible to share photo without sharing location? 

Do I just screenshot the photo then re-upload to remove the location data?

The photo location is embedded into the image files on your camera, it's in something called EXIF data. I don't know if any native photo apps for either iOS or Android support editing that data but there are definitely 3rd party apps out there which will let you remove it. You can use one of those to remove the location embedded into the photo before uploading it.
