Stop Safari from Asking About Google Using Your Current Location | iPad & iPhone

Have You Ever Found Yourself  Continually Receiving Notifications Like the One Below? 
Google Woild Like to Use Your Current Location Notification

If you have and you’re like most people, you’ve gone into Safari’s Settings looking for anything to change that might stop this message from annoying you. If you’re also  like most people, you didn’t find anything useful there.

The reason is because this is a location warning that Apple has placed in a different part of the ios Settings app. You’ll need to look in Privacy – Location – Safari in order to stop the notifications.

About vsajewel

Hi...I'm the author of 2 main blogs on WordPress...vsatips...where I write tech tips for mobile devices...primarily ios...2nd is vsatrends...where I write less about tech things and more about everything else. I also host a YouTube channel which I use to better illustrate some of the 'how to's' in my posts. I love everything about technology. Currently, my main interests/platforms are ios, Windows and Amazon Echo. Recently I decided we were spending way too much money with our local cable provider. So I decided to cut the cord. There is a definite learning curve, especially the antennae part, but we successfully did that and are now saving a boatload of money, so I write some about that. I also am extremely conscientious about security because of an event my family endured , so I write a lot about that too. Two sub-categories of security I tend to focus on are the password manager Dashlane and Hardware Firewalls. Last, I take a lot of notes and have been a beta tester for Evernote for many years. I love Evernote! In recent years Apple has beefed up Apple Notes a lot...so it’s become a fairly serious note contender...as long as its OK if you lose or mess up all your Apple note data. I write about those 2 note platforms primarily.
