    Is there a way to change this please? My address is correct in my Apple settings, but every time I am doing a web search, visiting a shopping site, my mac uses a zip code that is not mine and it's somewhat frustrating as I get all sorts of incorrect information. How do I fix this please to reflect my correct zip code? Thank you

    Websites use different methods to guess where you are and I think most are going by the location of the IP assigned to you by your ISP. If that's what you're experiencing there's nothing you can do about it.

    Pretty sure you are right on the money. Sad though, as it's not the end of the world but annoying all the same. Thank you for such a rapid response.
    Cheers.
