Claeity Geo-Location and High RISK scores.
Turning on the location services can help with lowering high RISK scores.
Google Chrome never shares your location without your permission. By default, whenever you're on a site that wants to use your location information, Google Chrome alerts you by showing you a prompt at the top of the page. Your location is sent to the site only if you click Allow in the prompt.
If you agree to share your location with the site, the location icon appears in the address bar to remind you that you've permitted the site -- or something embedded in the site, such as a map -- to access your location. To see more details or to clear location permissions for the site, just click the icon.
Turn location sharing on or off
1. Click the Chrome menu on the browser toolbar.
2. Select Settings.
3. Click Show advanced settings.
4. In the "Privacy" section, click Content settings.
5. In the dialog that appears, scroll down to the "Location" section. Select your default permission for future location requests:
o Allow all sites to track your physical location: Select this option to let all sites automatically access your location.
o Ask when a site tries to track your physical location: Select this option if you want Google Chrome to alert you whenever a site requests your location.
o Do not allow any site to track your physical location: Select this option to automatically deny site requests for your location.
Click Manage exceptions to remove previously-granted permissions for specific sites.
It is possible to enable the Location Services in Mac OS X. First, from your apple icon (with other windows closed or minimized) go to your System Preferences and select the Security & Privacy panel. Navigate to the tab named Privacy. Make sure the lock at the bottom left of the window is unlocked. If it's locked, click on it and enter your password to unlock it. You should then be able to uncheck the option named "Enable Location Services". Once it's checked, close out of System Preferences to save your changes.
When you click on the Matrix icon you should get to a login screen and a popup should appear. Make sure you allow.
