How to stop auto-geolocation?

I’d like to know how to stop the map component (Leaflet), to use geolocation automatically after the form loads. It’s annoying having something having the form loaded, with whatever already on map (circle, marker, etc), and moves to the reported user location (and thus, making the user to search the already marked place manually).

I tried to use map.stopLocate(); but it seems to ignore completely the command.
