In the Service, go to the ? icon in the upper left and then About and see where your data is stored. Then, also check the gear icon and choose Settings and see what your Language setting is in the Service. Might also check your browser language setting but I doubt that is it.

I have already followed your suggestions and noticed that my data is being stored in Central and southern USA. UU. (Texas). How can I change it that to be stored elsewhere in Latin America for example?

 

Thank you so much for the help.!!!

Hi @Simeyli 

 

The data region is based on the country that was selected when the tenant was first created. This applies to sign up for Office 365 in addition to Power BI as this information is shared. If this is a new tenant, when you sign up, you will see a country drop down. And according to this article, this selection for data region cannot be changed!
