Was my phone hacked?

    The other day I opened Google maps and it had my location in Saudi Arabia - I've never been there. Uber had the same location. I was in London at the time.

    Was this just a software glitch or was this a sign my phone might have been hacked? Is there any way I can check?

    Not sure if I'm being paranoid, but seemed pretty weird...

    I had Google say my phone and I were on the Northern East coast of the US,And I live in Mid West US.
    So I think it's a glitch.

    Mine says I'm somewhere in the Atlantic Ocean, off the coast of North Africa, more often as not.

    I've been in London, but phone and maps had location as Hong Kong. This was WiFi location, which can be very wrong occasionally.

    It's just a glitch. Don't worry about that.

    FWIW, I just noticed Google WiFi geo-location has me in the wrong place again... wifi location.jpg
