Modern browsers allow us to have a much more complete interaction with all security and performance functions when accessing websites and as such are integrated with various parameters that detect user data such as preferences, personal data and location..

 

 

The latter is activated by default in Google Chome in order to provide the user with the best options close to our physical site or to use this data for the use of third parties. This can affect security and privacy so many users want to know how to disable location in Google Chrome either on PC or mobile.
