Fake Your Location allows you to change the position your Android phone assumes you are currently.
If you want to pretend you are in a different location than where you’re actually at, here’s how to fake your location on your android device.
There are many reasons why you might want to fake your location. Some want to do it for privacy reasons, since many apps track your location in the background ( and you may not even realize that your location is attached to photos you take by default ), and others like to bypass blackout restrictions in certain streaming apps in order to watch live sports or catch their favorite TV shows and movies.
Or you can be super sneaky and change your location to Hawaii. Then post a Tweet with your location enabled and make everyone jealous (but you’re actually not in Hawaii).
Fake Your Location will let you specify your coordinates through the tip on a map. Whatever your motives are for wanting to fake your location on your smart phone you can use Fake Your Location to do it intuitively and easily.
You’ll see that the app will show your current location, but you can easily drag around the screen to change the location for the green pin. You can also zoom in to be more precise with your fake location that you want to set up.
Once you found a location that you want, tap on the Start button on the header to enable the Fake Location. The app will go to the
background. As long as the app is running in the background or until you stop the Fake Location you will appear to be in places you
have never been.
You can then go into any app where it will use your fake location. For instance, Google Maps will think I’m located somewhere that I’m actually not in, and even Tweeting with my fake location will work magically.
This will also work with Facebook Messenger (remember when a new tool revealed this?), as well as the Camera app whenever you take a photo and you have your location enabled.
You can even go back in history when you need to, which is probably the coolest feature of the entire tweak.
It’s really easy to use and makes it super convenient to change and fake your location whenever you want.
