Watch out! WhatsApp shares location information in Photos on Windows Phone

The guys over at WPCentral have been noticing that Photos saved to your own Photo Library on Windows Phone using WhatsApp actually saves an off Geotagging of your location, of you not the sender!

Such effect is not present on any other chat messaging app on Windows Phone, or even more bazaar is it’s not possible to repeat on Apple iOS, Google Android or BB10 versions of WhatsApp.

Hopefully this will be fixed soon, as their really is no way to turn this either off or on, maybe a new feature? But why, surely you’d want the location from the sender, not you saving it!
