Turn off location aware browsing in Apple Safari

Location aware browsing is a new feature in modern browsers. It supplies your geographical location to any sites you visit. This information can be used by a web site to offer services near your place. For example, a pizza site can use your location to locate nearest pizza outlet. If you do not like this feature you can turn it off easily. Here is how :

  1. Run Apple Safari. On the top-right side, you would see a settings gears like icon. Click on it and select Options as shown

  2. In the Preferences window, select the Security tab.
  3. Uncheck the checkbox labeled Allow websites to ask for location information

  4. Close the Preferences window.
