RE: PORTAL MAP/locate yourself (NOT)

I checked out my own location on the portal map. The streets are all named something different (for example: "Independence"!), and the surrounding buildings are not correct.

What do you all get when you pinpoint your location on the portal map? I zoomed all the way in just to see.... and went "What? None of this is correct..." !!

apparently if you click on portal near the left side of your screen (right under the site logo), and then click to see everyone online on the right side of the screen under "who's online", a map will show up where you can zoom into your location, or another user's location. you can look at the city and street names. the street names are either inaccurate or not up to date.

Everyone can go and see where you live.

LOL, yes, but it's not clear (location) because I watched my own pseudo, and it's not where I live Wink It's kinda "near" but not where I live Wink

Don't be fooled! The street names ARE different. And so is the surrounding area. !!

I wouldn't trust the portal too much guys. It can get pretty accurate as to where you are but not 100% spot on. I just tried it and said my street was about 20 miles from where I live. I think as someone above pointed out, it may for security reasons that it can't give your exact location out Smile
