Enable the location features on your mobile device

Your Yahoo services automatically update to reflect the area you're in, so you get the most relevant weather, news, and local search results at all times. When the location feature on your device, browser, or app is turned off, we may use other location signals such as your IP address to help personalize your experience. Choose when and how your device provides information based on your location.
