Websites can see your IP (Internet Protocol) address, a numerical label assigned to your device, and guess your physical location based on this. Location information is data taken from the GPS (Global Positioning System) on your smartphone, laptop, or digital camera that identifies where in the world you are when you post something or take a picture.
