Further, go to the “Set Location”. Also, make sure that that you’re Wi-Fi is disabled as it is likely to cause some trouble later.

Now, you can easily access the Fake GPS location application by going to the notification panel. There you can easily locate the exact coordinates of the place you are spoofing.


You can also add the location you wish to fake by using the search option. All you need is the ZIP Code for the area that you want to visit. Enter the desired ZIP Code in the location box and you are good to go. The GPS location pin will easily drag to the position automatically.

Then again, you can also enable your history location. This will save your time from the next time. You will not have to choose the location every time. They will be directly accessed once they are saved in your location history. Well, how about you save yourself some time and get the shortcut?

Step 5 Use Your application

The next and the final thing to do is, use up your location spoofer application. Use it with the new location. All you need to keep in mind is about spoofing the exact location that you are aiming to fake.

Also, do it before you actually open the app and visit it. It might so happen that the process falls out later. You can easily turn off the mock location in any minute. For doing it, enter the application and click on Stop option available.

Now, you will have all the power in the world to use and convince your application. Your act of smartness will not work out by chasing on for Netflix. The app is not that flexible as much. It required IP Spoofing for the same and also needs you to use a VPN Service for the process.


That is all the information that you will need to fake your location. The purpose behind it sure does vary and it is different for different zones. However, you can easily try it out to prank your friends and so on.
