5 Best Apps to Fake GPS Location on Android Devices – Fake GPS Apps
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 locations 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 a 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. You will be shown a map to select a location and the app will start faking the location you selected. Most of the location-based apps that use GPS for location data will use the fake location in place of your original 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 the Fake GPS app.
Note: All these apps are free to use. You also do not require any rooting for using any of these apps.
