Google is informing both iPhone and Android phone users about the ‘estimated photo locations’ feature, which stores sensitive data with the photos taken. Google has stopped using photo locations to identify where a photo was clicked or a video was recorded. However, it still works with other methods like ‘estimate missing locations’. Users will be prompted to choose whether to keep or delete the existing estimated locations. If users do not select the option to retain locations before May 1st, 2023, Google will automatically delete them. If users want to remove existing locations from their Google Photos on iPhones and Android devices, then they can follow the given steps.
