Chrome - Get Current Geographic Position on non-SSL sites

Just a heads up that Bubble’s “Current Geographic Position” won’t be populated if you have a non HTTPS (SSL) site in Chrome.

I also suspect that other Browsers will do similar things (having done some fairly unscientific testing on BrowserStack).

Google removed the ability to get the location on “non secure” sites so it won’t be populated.

Note that you may not get any request for location sharing in your browser in this case, the bubble field will just be blank, so it might be worth checking for this (this was always a possibility anyway, as the user could refuse to give their location) before showing a map. Or indeed zoom and centre.

I’m learning a lot here with you @NigelG. Do you think this could also be the reason on Google Maps Photos? The 403 error?
