More and more often, when this app refreshes the status of deliveries, it somehow sends the request as though it was coming from some location other than where I actually am.

Some examples: 

I was in Idaho a couple of weeks ago. When I refreshed my deliveries, I was immediately presented with a captcha (that only partially displays, btw) and 2 seconds later I got a warning email that someone had just tried to access my Amazon account from somewhere in Nevada.

Just a few days ago, I was in Washington state. Again, tried to refresh my deliveries. Got another (partial & unreadable) captcha, and a warning email that someone in California had just tried to access my Amazon account.

To get a few troubleshooting things out of the way:

  1. I don't use a VPN or proxy service
  2. This "location error" doesn't always happen. It's seemingly random. 
  3. It has happened while using both wifi and mobile data
  4. I have location turned on, with high accuracy enabled 
  5. No other app that uses my location ever shows me as being anywhere other than where I actually am.
  6. This has been going on for a while. So, yes, I've tried: 
  • resetting my phone, 
  • removing and re-adding my accounts, 
  • and reinstalling the app altogether.
