    On my Lumia 920, I have unchecked the "Include location info in pictures I take" box. But when someone sends me a photo with Whatsapp for example and it uploads it to Skydrive, I can see my location on it. Is there anyway to stop it from saving a location? Not very secure is it!

    un-checking to box should do the trick.
    Could Whatsapp be turning it back on?

    I don't see any options in Whatsapp to activate location info.

    Might the person sending the picture have it on?

    I think they are asking about pictures that someone else takes and sends to them still having location information. In that case, your camera setting is not going to help, your settings are for pictures you create. (But I have no idea why someone would expect it to behave like this, so maybe I'm wrong)

    The location information is stored in the EXIF data, if someone else takes a picture and includes this information in the EXIF data, without stripping or rewriting that data there is nothing you can do. I am not aware (though I have not looked) for any apps for your phone to strip or rewrite EXIF data. There are lots of ways to do it on your computer though.

    The picture's im receiving don't have location data, plus the location is my house, no where near the sender. They have an old phone which doesn't have geotagging. I'm pretty sure Whatsapp is doing it

    This is an issue with the app then, not WP8. You should ask the developer.
