    It is one of these icons that we now need, to open up the applications folder. To do that, we need this icon at the bottom of the home screen, in the middle. It looks like a grid, made up of white dots. Press down on this icon to open up our applications folder.

    In this folder, we need to find the Google Chrome application. Mine is located here. We can see the Google Chrome icon, which is a circle made up of different colors. Underneath, it says the word "Chrome". Our Google Chrome application may be in different positions in this folder. Therefore, we will need to find it. Once we've done that, press down on it, to enter the application.

    In this area, we want to look underneath "Allowed". Here, there is only one website. These are the websites that are allowed to access our location. Our list is very small, but I imagine that others may have a longer list. All of these web sites are allowed access to our location. They may need it to help provide us with a service. Now, we can edit these. We can remove certain websites if we no longer want them to have access to our location.

    It has the site name at the top, and an option at the bottom called "CLEAR & RESET". We can clear and reset this option. Let's press down on the blue box that says "CLEAR & RESET". It will give us a warning: "Are you sure that you want to clear all local data, including cookies and reset all permissions for this website?"

    If we want to continue, press "CLEAR & RESET". That website has now been removed from this list. This is how we can edit and customize this list of websites that have access to our location.
