How to disable location access in Chrome [Tip]

When browsing online, you may notice that some sites would automatically detect your location. This is common especially when you’re using Google Maps and other web apps with built-in support for geolocation (ex. Where Am I).

If you are feeling uncomfortable with the idea that you can easily get tracked by simply viewing some sites, you can choose to prevent these websites from tracking your location.

In Chrome, you can disable the geolocation feature by following the steps listed below.

How to disable location access in Chrome

disable geolocation in Chrome [1]

disable geolocation in Chrome b [2]

disable geolocation in Chrome c [3]

disable geolocation in Chrome d [4]

That’s it.

So when you go to a site with location access, your browser will no longer be able to track you without your permission.
