    Default Find My Friends showing my name in the notification, not my wife's

    I recently got a new iPhone 5, which meant my wife could upgrade her 3G to my old 4.

    One of the benefits was the ability to use Find my Friends with her.

    However, while she shows up fine in the friends list, if I put a geofence alert on her, it shows up as my name in the notification, not hers.

    Seems to work as intended for other people on my list.

    Might suggest it's either the old phone still linked mysteriously to my account, or the fact we have the same address etc in contacts. Which you would imagine would be the case for most people using find my friends.

    Any ideas?

    Are you using the same iCloud account? That can cause all kinds of problems.

    OK I figured it out! :-)
    For some reason her Apple ID had my name against it strangely.
    I guess it's never been an issue before now.
    Fixed that through the 'manage my apple ID' website. All good now!
