Thought I'd show how to turn geotagging on and off in the LineageOS camera app.
I don't know how it is with regular Android or iOS, but at least in #LineageOS you can turn #geotagging on and off directly in the default camera app settings. So if you're worried about your location data getting out that way, leaking it, or accidentally doxxing yourself, you can set it so that geolocation isn't even added to the #EXIF ("metadata").
In case anyone was not aware.
From the NYT:
"Before it leaked, EternalBlue was one of the most useful exploits in the NSA’s cyberarsenal. [...], analysts spent almost a year finding a flaw in Microsoft’s software [...] it went on to become a reliable tool used in countless [...] missions.

A. Use Microsoft? Get hacked.
B. Why do anyone trust the NSA?
I am still alive! LOL
