Close the Google Chrome App on Mac, and if possible, restart the Mac.

2: Unblock Website URL from Google Chrome Location Service Settings

Basically, when you visit a website that can deliver you a better experience by accessing your location like a Food Delivery Service, Travel Website, etc., Chrome will ask you to Allow or Deny location access to that website. On every visit, the Location Services prompt will appear unless you’ve hit the Allow button and letting the website access the location.

  1. Launch the Chrome app on Mac.
  2. Click on three dots for more menu on the top-right screen. or Click on the Lock option net to URL name in the Address bar.site-settings-for-location-service-on-chrome-mac

  1. Visit Hulu on the Chrome.
  2. Click on the Lock icon in the URL bar.
  3. Select Site Settings.
  4. Under Permissions, find Location and set it to Allow.

3: Hulu Keeps Asking to Enable Location Permission on Chrome

Despite the Location Services and Location, Permission is enabled on the Chrome App, Hulu keeps asking you to enable Location Permissions even though it is enabled. There are plenty of reasons why location permission for Hulu is not working and keeps asking.

To troubleshoot the same, revoke the Location Permission from Chrome App and Location Services for Chrome App from System Preferences. Later after rebooting the Mac and Chrome App, enable both the permission preferring the above steps.

4: Try Alternate Web Browser

Still, if the Chrome Location Permission is not working for Hulu, then without wasting much of your time, use any other alternate web browser with the Mac. You can use Safari, Firefox, Opera, Edge, etc., instead of Chrome. When another web browser asks you to Allow Location Services while using Hulu, give the access.

5: Should I enable Location services on my Mac?

Yes, you can absolutely enable and use Location Services on Mac MacBook for the apps that you believe are safe and fulfilling your privacy requirements. Mac has added Location Services settings in the System Preferences, which allows you to completely Turn Off and On-Location Services, and if you prefer to keep Location Services enabled, then you’ll get the list of applications in the same screen who are using the Location Services, from there you can revoke Location Services of a particular app.

To be clear, the Location Services of your Mac is not only the way to track you down; connecting Mac to Wi-Fi also reveals your location by tracking the IP address.

The conclusion is, only enable Location Services on Mac for the Apps that you’re using and they need Location Service access, else disable for the rest of the apps.

A corrupted Chrome browser in the system, Doesn’t allow you to fetch your Location service on your Browser’s Website that you are visiting. So, I recommended to uninstall Google Chrome from Mac, Download and install a new copy of the Chrome browser.
