    Cyberspace
    Modern browsers including Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer
    now include "geolocation" services based in the browser.

    What this does is attempt to locate you based on your IP, wi-fi or
    network location. It is used for several reasons, including adding a
    location to your tweets or Facebook updates, or to locate you on a map.

    You might want to hide or fake this location IP due to privacy concerns.

    Turning Off Geo-Location:
    Turning off the location features in either browser is fairly easy. When
    you are first given the chance to allow or deny location in Firefox, you
    can disable it right from that menu.

    If you have already allowed it, go to the configuration settings by
    typing "about:config" in your browser window.

    Find the setting "geo.enabled" and double click it to set it to "false."
