    More about this issue can be found here and here. Essentially, use of geolocation functions by insecure services has been deprecated. Apple's Safari browser has implemented a similar restriction as well.

     

    Solutions to this include deploying Wavepoint as a secure service (i.e., an https service) or using a different browser. Internet Explorer continues to allow for this type of access as of 11.0.9600.xxx.
