Disabling geolocation entirely



  • This morning I logged in and all website interfaces came up in the language of the country where I am sitting. I travel all the time for business and need to keep absolutely everything in US English always. Geolocation makes my life miserable. Besides, there are serious privacy concerns for doing business in some places. I don't want people to know where I am. Can we get a global on/off switch?

    Probably not. It's likely there is no geolocation involved here, but simply detection of the IP address you are logged on from. You can install proxy/IP-spoofing or IP-hiding software on your machine, but it's not going to be your browser. Under normal conditions, if you are connected to the internet, "the internet" "knows where you are" within reason.
