FRF wants to know my location?

Bobby, just ask man. I'll tell you where I'm at.

But seriously, kind of weird that the forum wants my location.

Since I put that tracker on your phone Doug, I always know where you are at.

I have never seen this before. What were you trying to access when that popped up?

That is an important feature! Now they can customize all the new ads just for you. This enhancement will improve your lifestyle and make you sleep better at night.

That would be clever but the info is not used in that manner. If you take a speed test AND are at a park, the info will be added to the available data about internet connectivity at that park.

Yep, no matter how they camouflage it, it's "data mining", plain and simple.

Since I am not at a park, I did decline it, and no more asking for location. Easy Peasy
