Ok…something strange is going on and I’ve about exhausted my ideas.
My laptop SSD (OWC Aura) died and they sent me a new one. I installed it and recovered from a CCC clone and all is well there. However, when I reinstalled Prey on it after deleting and reinstalling the machine account on Prey’s website and going through the Prey enrollment steps…the laptop (2015 rMBP) thinks it’s location is not at my house in North Fort Myers but down in Cape Coral somewhere, the address reported is a house down there but it’s not my house. My first thought was that something in 1Blocker was causing this but checked and my other Prey devices (iPhone and iPad running latest iOS) do come back to being located at my home address.
I disabled all the 1Blocker stuff in Safari and relaunched it…no joy.
Checked networking in case there was some strange VPN stuff going on…no joy. The laptop networking is setup with DHCP from my home router just like the other devices are and there’s nothing strange in Networking. I even tried creating a new networking location, completely uninstalling Prey and rebooting followed by a reinstall…all of that with no joy.
Since the MBP is up to date…it’s got Safari 15…is there something in there that would cause this issue? I don’t see anything obvious in the preferences but who knows?
