    Kinda surprised that with all the push to use Onedrive and making it super easy to back up and share your photos, there's no option to hide certain information of the photo! Like the geo tag!

    I would like to post a photo but not share the location of the photo publicly or even fine tune what types of users can see the geotag information, The restricted viewing seems fine when you browse the file online as maybe nobody can see.

    HOWEVER, when you download the file, the GPS information is all there!

    You can turn off the geotag (the ultimate option i guess)

    Also I think you can remove metadata manually with a program as well. (since OneDrive's essentially a file storage place)

    yea but then you lose geotag information for apps like storyteller app (just an example for if we want to do stuff with our photos)

    hmm it's not that important to microsoft or most people so far it seems! It was raised before in 2013! Can you remove location data from SkyDrive photo shares? - Microsoft Community
