When browsing the internet, several websites ask you for specific permissions to enhance your browsing experience. If you are a Microsoft Edge user, some websites ask you for location permission, and once you allow it, it uses your location whenever required. If you are concerned about your privacy and don’t want to share the location with websites, you can simply disable the location permission in the Microsoft Edge browser.
Websites like Google Maps eventually requires the Location permission of your computer and your browser asks you to either block it or allow it. Just like how you allow certain permissions on your smartphones, the browser also asks you for it for the websites you visit. Such types of permissions are asked when you browse the websites that require access.
Whether you want to block it for short period or want it to block it permanently, here’s how you can disable location permission in Microsoft Edge on your Windows or Mac.
