Home Address Discrepancy

Hello, when setting my home address from the map, I selected my home's location but it is set as the address of my neighbour's house.

Is it possible to reset my address, please?

    Your home review area will almost certainly be exactly the same no matter if it's showing your address or your neighbour's address. For a start, the address shown may not always be exact, but even if it was, review areas are based on a grid of cells, and the cells used are very large. For example, if you set your home location where I live in Yorkshire, UK, you'd get to see reviews from all of the UK aside from the very north of Scotland and the south coast of England.

    If anything, the only reason you should be wanting to reset your home location is so that you can put it somewhere fairly far away, as putting it at your current location is a bit obsolete as you already would receive reviews from those cells anyway due to it being the area where you currently play Niantic games.

    Thanks @HankWolfman-PGO for the explanation.

    @TheDodge-ING, as long as the neighborhood is correct, you do not need to worry about it.

    Thanks for the reply. It's just the inaccuracy is a bit OCD triggering.
