As a result of recent updates to the Windows Operating System, some users may see a popup like the one below about needed to enable location services.
This is due to how the updates handle allowing applications to access your location, triggering these popups, specifically with Backblaze, in regards to the "Locate my Computer" function.
If you do not wish to use the Locate my Computer function, a simple way to stop these pop-ups is to log in to your backblaze.com account, select "Locate My Computer" under "Computer Backup" and select the "Turn Off" option.
If you do not want to give blanket access to all applications to access your location, but do want Backblaze to be able to do so in order to use the Locate My Computer function, you can allow "Bzbui.exe" in your Location Privacy and Security settings.
