My Windows 10 phone stop reporting location today. Looks like this error is the problem: Decrypt data returns error Data error (cyclic redundancy check). (Excep_FromHResult 0x80070017)
What does this mean and how do I fix it?
Already tried a few reboots of the phone and stop/start of the app.

Hi, Cliff:

This is caused by the app data is corrupted. You might need to uninstall the app and then install the app. If the reinstall creates a device in your account, you can use the following link as a guide to transfer the app license.

I had now to this problem at once and only noticed this after the weekend by accident. Reinstall worked to solve this.

But because of that, I looked for an option to notify me, when such an app error happened and was a little bit confused, that I should pay for this email notifications.

I think, I have already paid for an working app and I also pay for an extended history without interruption (and now lost the whole weekend tracking) and because of that, I think, error notifications should at least included in the app price or in the extended history option.

It is a required service for tracking.
