What is EXIF Data and How Do You Remove it from Your Photos?

"EXIF contains a ton of information about your camera, and potentially where the picture was taken (GPS coordinates). That means, if you’re sharing images, there’s a lot of details others can glean from them.

EXIF stands for Exchangeable Image File Format. Every time you take a picture with your digital camera or phone, a file (typically a JPEG) is written to your device’s storage. In addition to all the bits dedicated to the actual picture, it records a considerable amount of supplemental metadata as well. This can include date, time, camera settings, and possible copyright information. You can also add further metadata to EXIF, such as through photo processing software."
Assuming that you are using Windows, you can open the image that you want to remove the data from, right click on it, then select properties. At the bottom of the menu box that pops up, click on "Remove Properties and Personal Information."

You can then either make a copy with all the data removed or modify the original file using the options on the menu.
