While scrolling through your old photos, ever wondered where a certain pic was taken? Every smartphone has some essential details about the photos taken such as its date, time, size, etc. It also stores the location the photo was taken at, provided your phone had GPS running at that point. In this comprehensive guide, we will help you to determine the location of the image taken using your smartphone.

First of all, your images need to be ‘geotagged’. A location tag must be enabled and the camera app should also have the necessary permissions required to use the GPS. Here’s how you can do that:

How to enable Geotagging on photos

For Android
