Location Spoofing Made Easy

All iPhone’s have GPS location tracking enabled – This features allows you to add your physical location to such things as photos or social media posts and is a great way to add more detail and relevance to things on your device. You can toggle this setting on or off as it can consume a great deal of battery life and also will use up a large amount of your mobile data.

Maybe you want to watch some live streaming that is only available to users in a certain region? Maybe you even want to try and change your location for a game like Pokémon Go? You might even want to trick your friends and pretend you are away in some exotic location! Whatever the reason, it is possible and the below guide will show you how.

Step 1 – Ensuring your iPhone is Jailbroken

Jailbreaking your iPhone will open it to numerous different developer features and will allow you to change some of the root settings in your phone. There are numerous guides and websites that detail how to jailbreak your phone – Simply type in the phrase on google and follow the instructions from a trusted source.

Step 2 – Download the relevant Jailbreak tweak

Once you have a Jailbroken phone it is a simple case of downloading a GPS spoofing “tweak” from the popular downloading repository called Cydia – Cydia has a host of different downloads that will work with a Jailbroken iPhone. One particular reliable GPS spoofing download is “LocationFaker” Simply download this app as you would any other app. Once you have the tweak installed on your phone, restart it to make sure that has taken effect properly, after that you are ready to go!

Step 3 – Manually change your location

Now ensure that your GPS service is enabled on your phone and then open the LocationFaker app. You should see a map with your current location listed – There will also be a pin that denotes your location, simply move around the map and change the location of the pin – Once you are happy with the location, simply press the “off” button in the bottom left corner and this will turn to “on” to signify that your location has now been changed.
