How to Check Which Websites Can Access Your Location in Edge

When you allow a site to track your location in Microsoft Edge, it can continue to track you without further prompts in the future. If you are not sure what sites you’ve given location access to, you can review a dedicated list in Edge.

Note: As of November 2021, there is no way to do this on iPhone or iPad. Instead, you can disable location sharing to prevent any websites from accessing your location.
