Many people asked me about removing the status update location from facebook using android phones .One way to get rid of this is by turning off the GPS service of phone completely but not every one wants to do this (including me ) as this stops the other applications that require GPS service to function to work properly .Personally i don’t like it too when my real location appears on my every single status update on Facebook,But Facebook makes sure that there is no way you can turn it off within facebook application except for Facebook Messages. places7offtopimage However there are three ways you can Remove your real location from the status updates and photos you post through Facebook using Android device.
1.Turning Off GPS Completely
As i said earlier turning your android device’s GPS is not the ideal way to do this, Because GPS is required by many applications to function,But if you don’ mind you can Turnoff GPS altogether.To do this, go to settings> location> location services, Uncheck everything you have there. remove-location-from-facebook-for-android You can also do this easily by dragging down the notification center and using the toggles there to turn off GPS.
