Unknown Field Showing in Push-to-Accept Screen

Applicable SecureAuth IdP Versions: 8.2.x+

Issue: User getting an "Unknown" message right below the timestamp of the Push-to-Accept screen they receive when they choose Push-to-Accept option from the 2-Factor Authentication methods list.

Cause: The "Unknown" message is supposed to display the location.

Background Info: The SecureAuth IdP take the web browser's IP (not the device's IP) and use that to do a lookup of the location the IP is associated with. Depending on where the cell tower is and/or where the ISP reports its location (if device is connected to WiFi), the final display location will differ and, if it cannot resolve the location, will display the "Unknown" message.
