Deprecated Geolocation on Chrome HTTP

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

So it seems that since the Chrome updated to version 50 They have removed HTML 5 Geo location on HTTP due to security. Now they do however say that it shall all work fine using a localhost for testing as it is being seen as a secure host yet it seems this does not work using a virtual host. If i do a test on "test.local" i will get the same deprecation messages as on a HTTP server but when i change it to "localhost" and run it again it all seems fine. Does anyone know a workaround to still be able to use Geo location using a virtual host or am i now stuck using localhost?

 

Thanks

Does test.local use ip address of 127.0.0.1? because this should still point to localhost whatever domain name you use unless you set it to different ip address.
