How To Hide Your Location on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram & Snapchat

Your Social Media posts give away your location – as long as you have not changed your settings in the related app. We want to show you below, how you can prevent Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat from revealing your location!

Hide location in Facebook/Twitter

If you are adding your location to a post on Facebook or Twitter, they will remember this place and add it to your next post automatically. Even though they only post the place and no address, you might have several reasons to hide this type of information.

You can hide your location directly, when you want to post something on Twitter or Facebook. Tap the location icon below the input box and make sure that you are not sending your location with this post.

Hide location in Instagram

Unlike Facebook and Twitter, Instagram does not share your location automatically. However, pictures that have been uploaded before August 2015 can be affected by a bug, so that it showed your location without being asked.

You can hide the location by clicking the location input box of a post and then choosing “Delete Location”.

We have collected all details of this topic in a separate article. Read more…

Snapchat is different to Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, because it does not share the location the same way. Regardless the applied Geofilter can still give conclusions to your location. You should think again, if you want to use a Geofilter.
