  1. The Find My Device function shows my desktop computer in the wrong city


    Hi,


    I was looking at my account information and clicked the Find My PC option. It showed a map and it said my PC was located inside the circle. Well, the circle was around a whole city. It happens to be the wrong city. I live about 28 miles away roughly from the center of this circle in a different city.


    Why is Microsoft showing the wrong location of where my computer is? I am taking a guess but it seems that they are probably just using the location of my ISP headquarters.


    Anyways, if this is a way to "fight" or challenge Apple's Find my Device, your system is so far behind and I hate Apple.


    Regards,

    Sean
