This is a discussion on How can I get Yahoo (and other sites) to stop asking me to "Use my current location"? within the iPad 3 Forum forums, part of the Apple iPad Discussions category; Originally Posted by everett2 I went to settings>general>restrictions.

I do not use YAHOO mail. I just use YAHOO as my default search engine from Safari. Under location services, I turned Safari off. I still get the location message. As I mentioned earlier, I even turned off all location services and still get the message.
I think it's time to quit asking about this. I've tried all that has been suggested and nothing turns off Yahoo from asking for location permission. One thing that I have noticed is that while in most cases, all that is offered is to say "yes," on occasion under some settings, I am given the choice of saying "yes" or "no." Not that it makes any difference, since it always has to ask. Maybe something else will show up when the next version is released.
I get this Location Services issue too and there is no way to turn this message off anywhere and is a nag every time I open yahoo. I'm hoping a future IOS update will take out this useless and annoying screen.
I guess it is comforting to know I'm not alone. Even my teen-age grandson didn't have an answer, though it doesn't happen on his iPad. My guess is that if I moved to another search engine, it would not appear. I think my grandson uses Bing. Maybe I'll try it out one of these days, but having spent two days and an hour on the phone with the Canon Support folks to connect one of their printers, I'm not in the mood to try anything else right now. Anyway, thanks for the note.
