Is it mandatory to share my location when signing?

Many users wonder if it is mandatory to share the location when signing because when signing from a web browser an alert may appear requesting information about the user’s location.

It is a message offered by the browsers themselves, it is not a Viafirma text, and it will be shown in the language in which the user has configured his/her operating system or browser.

Is it mandatory to accept?

It is not mandatory to share the location when signing, the process is completed correctly whatever the signer’s decision is regarding the acceptance of that message.
