    Do you mean this?

    I thinks this is a default behavior, I will raise your request to our widgets team, you will be notified via this thread about any updates.

    Not, I mean when you include a location widget in the form and if you open the browser in Android, the focus of the page goes to the location widget on the address field, so the keyboard in the phone gets active unnecessarily and this can be annoying (see the picture).

    So the question is if is there a way to force not to active the focus in the widget's text field?

    Thank you for the additional information. I see that my colleague has already forwarded this concern to our developers. We'll update you as soon as we hear any news regarding this matter.

    You might also be interested using the other widgets if you don't need to let your users to input an address or location. Here the the possible widgets that you can use: http://widgets.jotform.com/category/mapping. The Geolocation widget does not have an input field on it so it wouldn't focus on the map when the form is loaded.

    Hello, 

    This has been fixed - the form will not skip to the widget and open the mobile keyboard anymore. 

    We have removed focus on the widget input box when the form opens - now it should follow the tab order. 

    Please check - let us know if you experience additional challenges. 

    Cheers!!
