Turn Picture Location off

    Somehow my pictures are storing location information. I checked the stock camera app and "store location data" is turned off and have "remove geo location" turned on in Google Photos. Is this a bug or is there another setting somewhere that has to be adjusted?

    Camera app may not record your position, but Google gets it when uploading your pic.

    Thanks for the comment, it got me thinking and I think it is actually the Google Location History setting that is accessed via Google Maps that is trying to tie the locations to the pictures. Will turn that off and test it.
