Fake GPS is a free location-changing app that lets you set a new location for your phone, which serves multiple purposes. It’s useful for developers who are creating new apps and need to test if they can pick up specific locations around the world. For gamers, it helps if the games only work in some locations, which means you need to set up your device to work with it.
There are several other apps that work in a similar way, such as Location Changer - Fake GPS and Zenly Locator - Realtime GPS. Installing Fake GPS is only the first step, after which you need to make some adjustments to your phone’s settings. You’ll find different ways to set the location, and you can add some to your favourites.
Faking your location
Many people change their locations on their Android phones for different reasons. It could be to test a new app in development or to access an app’s features for a specific location. For example, a game may tell you “This app only works in Russia” or something similar. With Fake GPS, you can change the location of your phone to anywhere in the world.
There’s a slight catch, though. It only works on Android devices where you can enable Mock Locations in your settings. Also, you need to change it so that the location settings only work on GPS mode, and not to automatically detect. For it to work effectively, you should have no other location-changing tools active.
Adding to your favourites
The map in Fake GPS lets you quickly select a location if you know where it is situated. All you do is tap on the country and the area, and you can set your location that way. To save you time from repeating the process for the same region, you can set them as favourites. You can then access them from your Favourites list.
Another way you can use Fake GPS is by setting the exact coordinates of the location. It’s helpful if someone sends you the coordinates for testing, especially for app development. It may even help you with an AR game where someone tells you where you can find a specific item.
Change your location easily
Fake GPS is helpful when you need to change GPS locations on your phone. There are so many apps these days that need permission to check your location for specific features.
With this utility, you can quickly set it to a region that makes the game or app work like it’s meant to. You can even set several regions as your favourites.
