Default geolocation setting

Allows you to set whether websites are allowed to track the users' physical location. Tracking the users' physical location can be allowed by default, denied by default or the user can be asked every time a website requests the physical location.

If this policy is left not set, 'AskGeolocation' will be used and the user will be able to change it.

Supported on: Microsoft Windows XP SP2 or later
