Geolocation Help

Enabling Geolocation

Geolocation is the process of determining your location on Earth. The browser you are using will ask you for your permission to give your location.

By default, your browser will have geolocation enabled. If you have disabled geolocation in your browser, it’s easy to enable it again. Please follow these instructions.

What is Geolocation?

Geolocation is the process of identifying your location via your mobile device, tablet, laptop or even desktop computer. The latitude and longitude of your location are then plotted on a map along with the locations of businesses who have special discounts that meet your search criteria.

By default, your browser will have geolocation enabled. If you have disabled geolocation in your browser, it’s easy to enable it again.

If you can get my location, do you know who I am?

No. The only information known is there is a device at a location. That’s it.

How accurate is Geolocation?

Accuracy varies from location to location. Most of the time geolocation technology can pinpoint your location to within feet. However, in other areas it might be much more than that. It’s typically a little more accurate on mobile devices (smart phones and tablets) than it is on desktop computers.
