How to prevent websites from requesting access to your site in a safari browser


Often when browsing the Internet using Safari browser on an Apple device, you'll see pop-ups where websites ask you permission to access certain data, such as your location, and you might find this logical if you're looking for local information such as the nearest grocery store to your home or restaurant, where you must share your location data to get the most relevant results in your area.

But on the other hand, there are some websites when you visit to ask you for your location data for no apparent reason, in which case the first action you have to do is reject this request, and to avoid the inconvenience completely later you can stop the appearance of these pop-ups completely in your device.

First: on your iPhone or iPad:

  • Go to Settings on your iPhone or iPad.
  • Scroll down until you reach the Privacy option, and then press it.
  • On the next screen, tap the Location Services option.

  • Click on safari websites.
  • On the next screen, select the Never (Absolute) option.


Second: On the Mac computer:

If you're browsing websites via Safari's Mac browser, it may be more accurate, because the browser doesn't let you stop permission requests at once, instead you have to do this for each website, and to do so, follow the following steps:

  • Open Safari on your Mac computer.
  • In the menu bar, tap the Safari tab.
  • In the list that shows you, click on the Preferences option.
  • In the window that shows you, click on the Websites tab at the top.
  • On the left side of the screen, and under the General Tab, click on the Locations option.
  • On the right side of the screen, use the drop-down menu next to each website to change access to location data for each site, where you can choose from the following three options: (question), (rejection) Deny or (allow) Allow.
