Hello,

 
We are currently thinking to implement a form for a particular location. But then we had a query regarding how many users click on allow location to get users current location in https website in mobile and desktop browser. We need this data for benchmarking, based on these benchmark we would proceed to implement.
 
And also is there any other option to get users current location on https website without asking for user's permission. Please kindly help me in solving my query. 
 
Thank you in advance for helping.

Google published an excellent overview on location tracking on their developers site: https://developers.google.com/web/fundamentals/native-hardware/user-location/

 

TL;DR - users will allow location when you ask nicely and give them a good reason; as a fallback you can use their IP address without permission and be completely wrong for mobile and VPN users.
