Part 1: How Do I Fake Location on Google Maps?

You may think I should be turning off the location setting and wifi services to show fake locations on google maps. Well, I tried this, but it did not work, unfortunately. Google Maps can still track me. This is because Google Maps can use the signal strength of cell towers around me to guess my location, and believe me, this guess is usually very accurate. Also, the IP of the phone can be used.

After updating, now it can support changing location on Android 14 & iOS 17! I routinely use iMyFone AnyTo to a fake location in many circumstances, and I have not failed a single time so far.

  • Tap on your profile avatar, and in the menu, click Location sharing. If you are already sharing your location, you will tap New share.
  • Now select the contact you want to share your location with and also how long you will share.

2. Why doesn't Google Maps show my location?

There may be several reasons why Google Maps is not showing your location.

  1. If you are using the browser on your computer, your location is fetched from your service provider or the wifi data. In this case, the guess may not be accurate for specific technical reasons.
  2. Location information cannot be collected by browsers like Firefox, Chrome or Explorer, and Safari and, therefore, by Google Map. You need to provide it manually.
  3. On your Android or Apple phone, if the internet is on, Google maps might use the internet data to speed up the process instead of fetching GPS from the satellite. This guess again may not be very accurate because of proxies etc.
