    I dont know when this started but whenever I do a search in google in Safari, the first thing it does when it loads the result is to ask for my location. It's so annoying!! I can dismiss it by saying no, but then it would come back tomorrow.

    How do I stop this from asking forever?!?

    Yep, this just started recently. But maybe someone saw your post and changed something, because I can't reproduce it now.

    It doesn't always do it and I've only seen it happen on my iPad. I share my location on my iPad via my iPhone so I wonder if that's got anything to do with it?

    I spoke too soon, :mad:

    I found threads about this all over the internet, going back to 2013. On Google's product forum their answer was you should run Chrome instead, LOL.

    Anyway, I'm not "private browsing", and I cleared the cache and cookies... didn't help.

    Same I'm not using private browsing. It's really quite ridiculous of Google

    I have Safari Websites set to "Never" in Location Services settings on my phone, perhaps that is why I never get such prompts that I don't care for?

    Force close the app.

    Go to settings -> privacy -> location services

    Disable Safari toggle

    Google keeps saving search history no matter how many time I change their setting too, any one knows how to stop that?

    I do t mind it using my location. I just don't want it to keep asking even when I select allow.

    Mine is doing the same. I don't mind it using my location but when I select ALLOW it should remember.

    Then you won't get any location based search results, which are incredibly useful.

    This is a relatively recent issue, it happens all the time now, and it never used to. I've never changed any location services or Safari settings.
