  4. MY LOCATION IS TOTALLY WRONG HELP

    Wrong location

    Hello,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    I would appreciate, if you can provide us the following information to help us understand the issue better?

    • Are you getting the location on any website?

    When you connect to the internet through service provider, you are usually connected by them, to a router.... It is the location of the router that shows up as your location.



    This is because this is where your IP Address is being sent to the rest of the world.

    I would suggest you to contact your Internet Service provider to check if you can access the exact location.

    Hope this information is helpful. Do let us know if you need any further assistance, we'll be glad to assist you.
