    Welcome to Android Central! Which phone? When you open Google Maps and tap the crosshairs icon on the right, does it locate you correctly?

    Are you connected to a VPN, or a public wi-fi network?

    If the websites are not authorized to use your exact location, they are probably using the location associated with your IP address. The IP address is usually associated with a switching station that belongs to your ISP, wherever that station may be located.

    This is my thoughts as well. It's basing location on your IP address.
