Does HTML5 geolocation work with WIFI?


Does HTML5 geolocation work with WIFI?

by Geo Targetly

Yes, HTML5 geolocation API uses Wi-Fi. The API draws from different sources including cell tower IDs, GPS information and even a list of Wi-Fi access. Once the information is available, it will pass it onto a location service via an HTTPS request. Hence, HTML5 geolocation works well with Wi-Fi.
