My S9 will not allow me to access default camera without

So my phone updated a couple days ago and now I cant access the default camera app without turning location permissions on. Location is turned off on my phone in general, and I'm really suspicious of this. I shouldn't have to pinpoint my location to take a picture. Now I cant use my camera. It's the default app not 3rd party, and I've tried resetting the phone and network settings

It uses location to show you where you took the image in Gallery. It is however kind of stupid that it stops you from opening the app without it on 😒. Try this out: Give it location permissions and then go in the settings in the camera app and disable location tags. Then disable location permissions. Hope this works 🤞🤞

That worked thanks! It must have turned location tags on when updated
