Additional FAQs

Why won't I save my home address in Google Maps?

If you've tried changing your home address but it didn't work, there are a few things to check.

First, Google Maps connects your home address to your Google Account. This means that you must log in before changing your address. If you are not logged in, you will not be able to access your saved locations. In addition to that, if you can't save your home address, check that you've entered the correct email.

Another thing to check is your computer's connection. You cannot change your home address if you are not connected to the Internet or a cellular signal. If you're using Wi-Fi, make sure you're connected to a wireless network by opening a website or app. Also, if you're using cellular data, make sure you have enough data on your plan and check your signal strength.

Another reason why you may not be able to save your home address is that the app is not updated. Update the app and try again.

If you've tried all of the above and still can't save your home address, the app may be experiencing a temporary issue. You can try restarting your phone, and if that doesn't work, disable and enable the app or reinstall it.
