Default iphone doesn't show up in Find my Friends

We have four iphone Xs in the family. A coupld of the phones aren't acting correctly in "Find My Friends" on one of the phones.

Let's name the phones:
Isi
Äiti
K1
K2


The phone Isi shows Äiti, K1, & K2 as it should. "Me" shows up as it should except it has the "icon" associated with Äiti.


The phone Äiti shows K1, K2, & "Me" as it should. Isi doesn't show up at all. Äiti shows up again.


I made sure that "Me" on each phone is logged in to their own account, and I'm pretty sure it is.


Does my explanation make sense? Do you know what's going on? ...how I fix it so that Isi shows up on Äiti's phone & "Me" on Isi's phone doesn't show Äiti's icon.




I'm wondering if maybe Isi isn't logged in to something correctly since it's showing up as Äiti.

Check the email addresses for the associated contacts. I had this issue before and had both email addresses on one account, which lead both of them to showing up as the same name in find my friends.

Thanks for the idea...we did have different email addresses, but the address I had for myself was causing problems (it's used as a shared address for my wife and me & I think the appleid/itunes/whatever account somehow had it associated only with Äiti).



Anyway, I went in and changed the "Invitations...send as..." email address to my icloud address & that seems to have fixed the issue.
