Here's how to easily fake your GPS location on Android
The internet is a wonderful place, even when viewed from the small window of your smartphone. Unfortunately, certain parts of it are reserved for those that fit a certain criteria – location being a common example. Indeed, both webpages and apps might behave differently if they "thought" that you were somewhere else instead of where you currently are. Think of the many apps and services that, for example, don't work if you're outside of the US. The only way for you to use those is to physically move there. Or is it?

Like many of you will likely know, Android is quite versatile – even we continue to surprise ourselves with the types of functionality it has built-in support for. Faking your GPS location fits that bill perfectly. And guess what – it's a feature available on pretty much any modern Android device, regardless of manufacturer. There are many reasons you might have to want to spoof your location (most of them quite niche), but whatever it is that you're looking to do (hopefully nothing illegal!), you can rest assured that the actual procedure is as easy as pie. That's right, you don't even need to root your smartphone.

Jump right into the slideshow below for a step-by-step walk through the process.
