How to get user mobile location on website?

I have a mobile app which is in vue and ionic. Another is a web app which is in laravel and jquery.

Now I want to share mobile phone location on the website how I can achieve that. I am confused about how google will tell a website where mobile phone user is?

  1. The javascript geolocation API is used to do this.

    Some points from w3schools:

    The HTML Geolocation API is used to get the geographical position of a user.

    Since this can compromise privacy, the position is not available unless the user approves it.

    Note: Geolocation is most accurate for devices with GPS, like smartphones.

    On the linked page, a short piece of example code is provided that shows you how to do this:

    <script>
    var x = document.getElementById("demo");
    function getLocation() {
      if (navigator.geolocation) {
        navigator.geolocation.getCurrentPosition(showPosition);
      } else {
        x.innerHTML = "Geolocation is not supported by this browser.";
      }
    }
    
    function showPosition(position) {
      x.innerHTML = "Latitude: " + position.coords.latitude + 
      "<br>Longitude: " + position.coords.longitude; 
    }
    </script>
