If you're one of those groups who have no idea what is GPS spoofing or how to spoof in Pokémon GO or other location-based apps, you've come to the right place. In this post, we will tell you everything about GPS spoofing on iOS and Android devices. 

What Is GPS Spoofing?

GPS spoofing means using some technologies to trick your device's GPS tracker to think you're located somewhere you're not.

As we all know that GPS is an abbreviation of Global Positioning System, a satellite-based navigation system that consists of a constellation of 24 satellites. These satellites circling the Earth and transmitting signals to users situated on or near the earth's surface. If you want to change the GPS, then you'll need to use some location spoofers to interfere with the signal and send a fake satellite single to your device. Thus, you can change your location to anywhere you want. 

Why People Spoof GPS?

The Spoofing GPS technique is often used in some situations, as shown below.

  • Play some location-based games like Pokémon GO, by changing the location of which you can find and catch more Pokemon from outside their areas where you can't physically travel to.
  • Protect your real location from being tracked by some privacy-focused apps. 
  • For entertainment purposes, such as match more friends on dating apps, watch movies that are not available in your areas, or just trick your friends with your fake location.

How to Spoof GPS on Your iPhone or Android?

There many different ways to spoof GPS on iPhone and Android devices. Here we will introduce them respectively.

Part 1. How to Spoof GPS on the iPhone

Spoofing GPS on iPhone requires more effort than with Android devices because Apple doesn't offer you options of doing this. Overall, you have two options: 

  • Use some spoofer apps downloaded from Build Store or Cydia, which usually require you to jailbreak your device. 
  • Use some desktop-based spoofer program, most of which are easy to use and don't require you to jailbreak your device.

Broadly speaking, we don't recommend using spoofer apps because performing a jailbreak will make your device highly susceptible to viruses and hackers who want your personal information.

Given that, using a desktop-based spoofer program is more advisable. Here we mainly recommend EaseUS MobiAnyGo, a safe and reliable GPS spoofing app for iOS users. It is currently one of the best spoofing apps we found for you. No need to jailbreak your iPhone. With this location changer, you can do many things like:

  • Change your location to anywhere you want
  • Look for any specific locations by entering their coordinates
  • Define a route by selecting two or multiple spots
  • Set the walking, cycling, and running speed.

Step 1. Launch EaseUS MobiAnyGo and connect your iPhone to the computer. Now, agree to its disclaimer and proceed by clicking "Start." Note: Before you proceed, remember to stop all location-based apps running on the background.
