App not approved as Geolocation is not working in Chrome and Firefox RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I have developed an App for SharePoint 2013 which uses the HTML5 Geo location to get the position of the user. I tested the App in IE9,10,11 and Latest versions of Firefox & Chrome, the location is being fetched as expected.

    However, when I submit the App to the Office Store, I got a report from the concerned team saying that the location is not getting fetched in Chrome and Firefox for them (working in IE). I requested them to check if the W3Schools link ( is working. I was informed that this link also doesn't work for them in Chrome and Firefox.

    The error which they are getting is 'POSITION_UNAVAILABLE'

    However, its working fine for me in IE, Chrome and Firefox. Can someone please provide some pointers on how to troubleshoot this issue?
