Has anyone ever asked you to send your location but you did not want them to know where you are? Then this tutorial is for you. If you don’t know yet, you can send a fake location by WhatsApp, both static and through the real-time sharing location mode. Let’s see how?
Carrying out this action is not at all complicated since the messaging app has not yet taken action against the applications to falsify the location, so WhatsApp still works. The same does not happen on other platforms, such as Tinder, which has blocked them completely.
Methods to Send Fake Location in WhatsApp
There are two ways to do it: the first involves sending a location you’re not in, although it has to be a local, a store, or a point registered in Google Maps.
The second option is more “professional”, to say the least, as it allows you to send a fake location by WhatsApp in real-time without the other person being able to realize it.
Pay attention because surely this trick can spare you some displeasure.
1. Install an application to distort the GPS location
The first thing you have to do is install and enable on your mobile one of the many applications that serve to falsify your geolocation. The most popular are Fake GPS on Android and Fake GPS Location! on iOS.
In Android, before faking the location you have to give Fake GPS permission to that effect, as it happens with all the apps that have access to the microphone, SMS, location and more sensitive components.
For this, you have to enable the developer options and mark Fake GPS in the option called Application to simulate location.
When you have done it, then open the app, choose a point on the map where you want to appear on WhatsApp and then click on the Play icon.
2. Send your fake location in WhatsApp
For all intents and purposes, you are already virtually at a different point on the map. Most applications can be easily tricked by this trick, including WhatsApp.
Now you just have to go to share location on WhatsApp – in real time or not – and send it to your contacts. You will appear in the area of the map that you have chosen, not in the one you really find yourself.
That is it! This is how we can send a fake location in WhatsApp. Use this method only where it is necessary. Do not misuse this method.
