    Browser Location Privacy- How to Set


    Here's something I ran across you might find helpful if you're concerned about browser privacy and access to your location. It's easy to set virtually any browser to stop asking if it can access your location. There are steps outlined for Firefox, Chrome, Edge and IE. Firefox steps are also for any Mozilla based browser (i.e. Cyberfox , etc.) and Chrome steps for any Chromium based browser. This is the example for Firefox, all others are outlined in the article. No hacks, just settings. TC

    How to Stop Websites From Asking For Your Location

    Type geo.enabled into the Search box on the about:config screen. Double-click the “geo.enabled” preference that appears and Firefox will set it to “false”.
    You can close the about:config tab afterwards.

    It is actually good to know, which pages ask, so you know, which ones are intrusive, and that you have to look for other things like canvas protection, unless they are location based, like weather forecast or pizza delivery.
