Why is the location information displayed with the what3words address sometimes inaccurate?

When you search for a what3words address, you’ll see some location information such as the area, city or state displayed alongside the results. This gives context as to where the what3words address is, and helps you confirm that you’ve entered the correct address. Handy!

This additional location information comes from an external global database so the listed town or city can sometimes be inaccurate. However, it should be sufficient to give you the location context you need to find the precise what3words address you’re looking for.
