why does geolocation not work on mobile browsers and desktop?

Stack Overflow Asked by morteza on December 6, 2020

I am trying to get the location of the user with HTML5 geolocation. On Desktop Gives this error when I grant access 2: Network location provider at ‘’: No response received. And when I test on a mobile phone, it does not ask the access question and error 1: User denied Geolocation

this is my code:

successHandler(position) {
errorHandler(errorObj) {
  alert(errorObj.code + ": " + errorObj.message);  
getLocation() {
  if (navigator.geolocation) {
    navigator.geolocation.getCurrentPosition(this.successHandler, this.errorHandler, {
      enableHighAccuracy: true,
      maximumAge: 10000,
      timeout: 10000
  } else {
    alert("Geolocation is not supported by this browser.");
created() {

I am using Google Chrome on all devices.

One Answer

  1. Geolocation on Google Chrome requires connection with Google. As a result, if you are in a region where Google is banned, it cannot provide location service.
  2. As other guys mentioned, geolocation requires HTTPS.
