On my Galaxy S23 Ultra, when I go to any website that requires location access I hit allow, then I get a warning saying: "This site can't ask for your permission. Close any app bubbles or overlays from other apps then try again."

I have given Chrome all permissions and there isn't any app in the background.

Please help.

Do you have any chat bubbles open or the S-Pen button quick access floating? If so, that may be conflicting with the permission prompt.
nothing is open, I even when to settings / appear on top and turned off everything and closed all other running apps but no luck

No split screen or floating window? In Chrome, Settings, Site Settings, is the Location permission set to 'ASK' and not to 'Block'? (Or the site you're visiting added to the blocked list?). Does it happen with a specific site or with any site requesting location? Have you tried in Incognito mode? Or a different browser? (Trying to pinpoint where the 'culprit' is...)

FIXED after your suggestion, than you!

I had www.google.com set to BLOCKED, I changed it to ASK and now it allows the location to be tracked.
