    Find the Google Chrome application, and tap on it once to open the application
    .
    The Google Chrome icon looks like a big circle made up of different colors and has the word "Chrome" underneath it. Your Google Chrome application may be in a different position in this folder, therefore you will need to find it.

  9. 9
    Tap on the icon to the right of "Location" to enable or disable the option
    .
    The button will indicate blue to indicate that the option is enabled and says "Ask before accessing (recommended)". With the option activated, when a website in Google Chrome wants or needs to know our location it will ask us before accessing that location. We can turn this option off and block our location from being seen by any website. When the option is disabled, the button will turn gray and say "Block all sites". However, it can be very useful for some sites to know our location i.e.. Google Maps. To turn the location access on, tap the button again to make it blue, indicating "Ask before accessing (recommended)".
