How to Turn off Precise Location on Instagram (iOS and Android)

How to Turn off Precise Location on Instagram

One of the most popular social networks at the moment is Instagram, an app that allows users to post stories, images, and videos.

Why Does Instagram Track its User’s Location?

Instagram, which has millions of users from all over the world, has contributed to making it simpler to find someone in any country by offering a number of options or tools.

You can find anyone on Instagram using the options below:

  1. Name
  2. Phone Number
  3. Hashtags
  4. Location (if they had tagged it)

Instagram is able to determine your location thanks to geolocation, a technique that uses an object’s IP address or GPS to get geographic information about it, such as a phone or a car.

This can be a very helpful tool, but it’s also pretty risky at the same time. So, follow the below methods to disable location service for Instagram.
