HI,

Has anyone seen an issue with Edge/Bing on iOS where it thinks you are in a different country? When I search from my iphone, it thinks I am in Great Britain and I see UK results first (amazon.co.uk instead of amazon.com). I tried to fix it - I tapped the menu on the upper right hand side of my screen, tap settings, tap country/region (it shows UK), tap change your country/region, scroll down to united states and tap save. The region now shows properly (US).  I close the browser and reopen; it switches back to UK.  I also went to bing.com first via edge browser and when I search I still get the UK responses. I do not have this issue if it's browsing in private (settings show US as the country region). have tried the following:

  • clear browser data
  • uninstall and reinstall edge
  • Set my location in the settings
  • Verified it is only Bing/Edge combination, firefox and safari see me in the US using the same steps above. ( First going to bing.com and then hit the hamburger menu in the top right corner)

I do not experience this issue on my desktops (windows and macos) I get the correct results.  Any recommendations to resolve this problem? It's frustrating. 

 

Thanks!

Hi,
since you already tried clearing data and even uninstall/reinstall, I can suggest to please submit file a feedback report using the feedback feature on Edge IOS, that should send additional data to developers about your situation and help them solve it.
