No, we don’t have your phone!

For Sophos, John Zorabedian explains Why “find my phone” apps keep sending people to one couple’s house. Apparently it isn’t because they’re stealing phones.

The article specifically mentions Find My iPhone for iOS and Device Manager for Android, but I would have thought that the geolocation issues that lead to problems for particular addresses might be common to a range of apps that offer some sort of anti-theft device tracking, but it’s not an issue I’ve explored up to now. No harm in checking with the software supplier if you have such an app enabled, anyway.
