How To Fake GPS Location On Android

You will find plenty of fake GPS location apps on Google Play Store for faking the GPS location. However, not all of these are free and can be trusted. So, if you want to fake GPS location on Android without inviting any trouble, here are a few steps you must follow:

1. Enable The Right Settings

To make a fake GPS location app work on Android devices, you need to enable the Developer Settings. To do so, go to the Settings of your Android device. Go to the About section, usually found at the bottom of the menu. 

Go to Software Information. Find the "Build number" from the menu and tap on it seven times continuously. This will turn on the developer mode. Activating Developer Settings poses no glitch if used for a purpose you are well aware of
