Check How To Spoof Location in Chrome

On any occasion, when you browse a website, some of the websites may request permission to access your location. So that they can provide service or product according to their location. You have 2 options: allow or block it. For example, if you want to give or provide your exact location or fake location, then there is an idea. Here you will learn how you can spoof your location / change geo location in Google Chrome browser.

Fake geo location in Google Chrome

Method 1: Manually Entering Location Coordinates

  • First, make sure the browser asks for your permission every time a website wants to access your location. For that, open Chrome and click on the ‘Menu’ button (three dots) in the upper right corner. Now click on ‘Settings’.
  • Now scroll down to the ‘Privacy and Security’ section and click on ‘Site Settings’.
  • In the “Permissions” section, you will see the “Location” entry, which should say “Ask before accessing”. If it says ‘Blocked’, click on it and flip the switch.
  • Next, go to Developer Options by pressing Ctrl + Shift + I for Windows or Cmd + Option + I on Mac. Now click the Menu button (three dots) in the development console (not the browser menu) and select ‘More tools’> ‘Sensors’.
  • In the new panel at the bottom, you can click the ‘Override’ button to select from a bunch of preset options, including Tokyo, Mumbai, and London. Alternatively, you can also set your precise location manually by typing in your exact lat and long coordinates.

Method 2: use an extension

You can also spoof your IP using the Chrome extensions from the web store. The one we recommend is Location Guard (free). It will allow you to hide your exact location, but will still report your general location to websites. This will help you get the best of both worlds – you can enjoy local search results without giving your exact address. You will also be able to spoof your location entirely (as we did manually) if you don’t care about the accuracy of search results, etc. Either way, this is how you do it:

  • Add Location Guard to Google Chrome. Now, to spoof your location, go to the Location Guard ‘options’ (Chrome Settings> Extensions> Location Guard Details> Extension Options). Now change the Default Level to ‘Use Fixed Location’.
  • Now you can drag and drop the blue pushpin on the map to anywhere on the planet and your browser will spoof that location.
