Have you ever wanted to change your location on your Android device? Maybe you want to access location-restricted content or simply play around with different geolocation-based apps.

Well, you’re in luck! In this tutorial, we will show you how to spoof your location on Android using a few simple steps.

Step 1: Enable Developer Options

In order to spoof your location on Android, you need to enable the Developer Options. To do this:

  • Go to Settings
  • Scroll down and tap on About Phone
  • Find the Build Number
  • Tap on the Build Number several times until you see a notification that says “You are now a developer!”

Step 2: Enable Mock Locations

Once you have enabled Developer Options, it’s time to enable Mock Locations:

  • Go back to Settings
  • Tap on Developer Options (which should now be visible)
  • Scroll down and find the “Mock Locations” option
  • Select the app that you want to use for spoofing your location (e.g., Fake GPS)

Step 3: Install a Location Spoofing App

In order to actually spoof your location, you will need a reliable location spoofing app from the Google Play Store. One popular option is Fake GPS. Here’s how to install it:

  1. Open the Google Play Store app
  2. Search for “Fake GPS”
  3. Tap on the app called “Fake GPS Location – GPS JoyStick”
  4. Tap on “Install” and wait for the installation to complete

Step 4: Set Up Fake GPS App

Now that you have installed the Fake GPS app, it’s time to set it up:

  1. Open the Fake GPS app
  2. You will be prompted to grant certain permissions. Tap on “Allow” for all of them.
  3. In the app, search for a location or enter coordinates manually to spoof your location.
  4. Tap on the play button to start spoofing your location.

Step 5: Verify Your Spoofed Location

To make sure your location is successfully spoofed, you can check it in any location-based app. For example, open Google Maps and see if your location matches the one you set in the Fake GPS app.


  • If your spoofed location is not working properly, try clearing the cache of both the Fake GPS app and any other apps that use location information.
  • If you want to revert back to your real location, simply disable Mock Locations in Developer Options.

Congratulations! You have successfully learned how to spoof your location on Android. Now you can enjoy accessing location-restricted content or testing geolocation-based apps without leaving the comfort of your home.
