Using Chrome or a Chromebook at work or school? Your network administrator might set location settings for you. Learn about using a managed Chrome device.
Important: If you're using Chrome on a Mac desktop, you may get a notification that "Location is turned off in your Mac system preferences." To update your computer's location preferences, follow the onscreen instructions.
How Chrome shares your location
If you let Chrome share your location with a site, Chrome sends information to Google Location Services to get an estimate of where you are. Chrome can then share that info with the site that wants your location.
