Avast got my location wrong. What does this mean?
« on: May 07, 2019, 02:29:15 PM »
A week ago, they knew my hometown. Now they guessed and were not even close. I am not in Virginia. What does this mean?

We'd know more if the OP kindly included basic information such as avast version and build number, os, etc.,.
