    This site along with boardingarea.com sites are now asking for access to my location data. I assume this is advertising driven?

    Anyway I support the sites and am ok viewing ads but find the location access requests intrusive.

    I don't see a legitimate need to know my exact location down to a few meters. From my ip you should be able to tell my general city or region.

    Interesting. I have not been asked for that information. Is there a specific page or area you see this?

    Its both on boardingarea.com and on this site at random times. On both iOS and on Windows 7. There is a popup saying boardingarea or insideflyer is asking for my location, with an ok or cancel option.
