Microsoft Edge can give you more relevant search results, maps, and news when you share your precise location with Microsoft services.
For example, when you share your precise location with Microsoft services, Bing can provide more accurate search results and maps. Microsoft Start can provide more accurate weather and relevant local news. Also, the new tab page on Microsoft Edge will have more relevant local content such as news and weather.
Microsoft Edge will ask your permission for Bing to access your precise location with Microsoft services. Allowing this will add Bing.com to your location site permission list in Microsoft Edge and will allow Bing to use your precise location to provide local results. Microsoft Edge may also ask you to allow Bing to access your precise location when you use features in Microsoft Edge that use Bing and other Microsoft services, such as the new tab page. Allowing this permission will add Microsoft services like Bing.com and MSN.com to your site permission list.
You can view and change which sites have permission to access your location by visiting edge://settings/content/location. You can remove any site from the permissions list at any time.
Microsoft services may determine your imprecise location using information like your IP address to show you results relevant to your general location without asking permission in Microsoft Edge.
