5 Best Apps to Fake GPS Location on Android Devices
Android smartphones come with GPS connectivity for location services. Different applications use your GPS location to offer you location-based services. Google, Facebook, Tinder, Uber, and several other apps use GPS location for offering their services. But there could be some cases when you do not want your exact location to be picked. For example, you wish to browse people of other location without buying a premium subscription on Tinder. These could be several other similar cases. This is the reason, there are few apps that allow you to fake GPS location.
In this article, I am listing few best apps to fake GPS location on your Android phone. These apps allow you to select any random location to set as your current GPS location.
I have tested these apps with several other apps that allow location sharing. I found that you can use these apps to share a fake location on WhatsApp, Messenger or Maps. When you open Google Maps after faking your location, it picks your location from that fake location. When you open Facebook, it asks you to check in at the new place. I even managed to use Tinder for any other location without buying a premium subscription. It means, these apps work flawlessly.
Here is the video demonstration for WhatsApp location sharing using Fake GpS app.
Note: All these apps are free to use. You also do not require any rooting for using any of these apps.
