As we have shared with you before, one of the most ambitious flagships of the year, the Samsung Galaxy S21, was finally unveiled within the past week after a long and curious wait. The phone, which consists of three different models: Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21 Plus and Galaxy S21 Ultra, has been noted for both its design and features.
The Galaxy S21 family, which has made great progress compared to its predecessor, also includes extremely significant improvements in privacy and security features. Galaxy S21 users have the possibility to remove GPS location data from their photos before sharing it with others, SamMobile reported.

When sharing their photos, all users have to do is press ‘Remove location data’, and then choose their preferred sharing service. Thanks to this feature, the longitated and longitated information indicating the location of the photo comes out of the EXIF data.
While users can remove location data from photos using third-party apps in the Play Store, the built-in feature will undoubtedly make it accessible to many more users.
Galaxy S21 users also have the ‘Private Sharing’ feature, which gives them more control over who can see their photos, videos, documents and other files and for how long.
Another new security feature, the Samsung Knox Vault, uses a secure subprocesser, secure memory and integrated software to protect biometric, blockchain, PIN and password data. This feature allows user data to be saved even during hardware attacks. The South Korean tech giant stated at the launch event of the Galaxy S21 that it was working with Qualcomm and Samsung LSI for this feature.
