Error ‘User Denied Geolocation’ on iOS Devices

Owners of iOS devices such as an iPhone and or iPad may experience the ‘User Denied Geolocation’ error if they have previously denied permission for Safari to access the device’s location for another website or web app.

There are three places to check for permissions and enable geolocation for your Austere Field Application:

  1. Settings > Privacy > Location Services
  2. Settings > Safari > Location
  3. Settings > General > Reset > Reset Location Warnings

Note: the permission is only for Safari to access the device’s physical location – this data is not transmitted anywhere unless you explicitly include location data in a form.
