Thanks to technology, as well as your cellular phone, you can easily share your location with others. However, if you want to keep your location private, there are a few ways to do so. You may want to use a GPS spoofing iPhone app for a variety of reasons. It may be because you are playing a certain game to where you want to seem as if you are in a different location or that you just want to fool your friends. Whatever the reason, there are a variety of ways to spoof your GPS on your iPhone.
Cydia And the LocationFaker App
You can fake your location with a download from the Cydia app. First, your iPhone will need to be jailbroken. From there you can search for the term “LocationFaker” in the Cydia search tab. You will then need to select your version of your iPhone in order to install the right one. After it is installed on your phone, you can open it up right from your home screen. It will show the location where you currently are, using a green pin. You can drag this pin around to whatever location you choose. If you have a very specific location in mind, you can even zoom in so that you can easily find it. After you’ve found the location that you want to use, you will need to tap the “Off” button. It is located on the lower-left corner of your screen. This allows LocationFaker to fake your GPS location. You don’t need to stay on this page in order for it to work. You can exit out of it and it will still run in the background of your phone. You can even add some of your locations you use to your “favorites” so that you can easily find and use them in the future without having to search for them. If you have a jailbroken phone, this is by far the easy way to GPS spoofing iPhone.
Photos Location Spoofing App
Many people don’t realize that there’s a location attached to where a photo was taken. If that photo was taken on your phone, you can usually see the location that it was taken at by first going to your “Photo Library” and then opening the photo and clicking on “Details”. Luckily, there is a way to add a fake location to these photos. If you just want to spoof the location of your photos and not just the actual location of your phone, you can easily do that. First you will need to download the Mappr app.
After downloading this free app you will need to open it and either tap the photo or camera button to find the photo that you wish to spoof the location. If you want to use an existing photo on your phone, you’d use the photo option. If you want to use a photo on the internet, you’d use the camera option. If your phone prompts you to do so, enable access to the app. Then tap the photo you wish to use.
You will see a pin where the photo actually is. You will drag this pin to wherever you want to spoof your location on the map. You will have to tap on the share button that is located on the top right of the screen. You will see a pop-up menu where you will have to tap the save button in order to get the fake location to save. In your photos app, you will see that there is now an image file that saved with the details of the photo’s new location.
However, the original photo can still be found in the phone’s “Photo Library” with the actual location of where the photo was taken. So basically you will see two of the same images when you go through your “Camera Roll”. One image will have the fake location and one image will have the actual one.
As you can see there are several ways that you can spoof the location or images on your phone. It’s a great way to trick a game, fake out your friends or just to feel safer as others won’t be able to tell where you are in real time. It’s free to do and fun to experiment with.
