Location Spoofer – Spoof your location for ANY app!

Author: AlJaMa  //  Category: Apps, Jailbreak, News

Ever want to fake your device into believing it’s anywhere in the world? Now you can, with Location Spoofer available on Cydia Store!

Location Spoofer allows you to get around all of the location specific locks that some apps put in place to prevent you from viewing content in certain regions, as well as creating a fun utility to change your location to anywhere in the world with the tap of the screen! It does this all while retaining the ability to retrieve your true location, and without modifying any system files.

There are many reasons that one like to spoof their device’s location, such as:

  • Getting around location specific content and restrictions.
  • Creating a sense of security, knowing that your real location is never transmitted.
  • A fun tool to mess with friends and social networking apps that use location. (such as loopt)
  • Any other reason you can think of to modify your location on earth.

Location Spoofer is flexible, allowing you to modify every aspect of the Location Spoofing process.

The ‘LocSpoof’ Control panel installed with Location Spoofer, it allows you to:

  • Modify the exact latitude and longitude of the spoofed location.
  • Modify the altitude, horizontal and vertical accuracy of the spoofed location.
  • Choose which apps to always Spoof the location, and which to never spoof the location.
The package “Location Spoofer” is now available in Cydia for $1.99

    Just one question…

    Will this be able to spoof AT&T family map? For those who don’t know, family map is At&T’s tracking service that allows family to track where you are secretly.

  3. C.erefen Says:

    No Buy option in Cydia, just Install, in which authentication fails.

    “Any other reason you can think of to modify your location on earth”

    Test your geo based app

    That is a huge tool for us developers.

  10. Ahmed Says:

    ilocalis has released an app with the exact same features called FakeLocation and its free….

  11. Thermostaten Says:

    How do i spoof the location for the ilocalis daemon
    ? I cant see what that process/program is called – the program called ilocalis is just the client gui program – not the daemon.

    Does any one know this ?

  12. L.A. Says:

    Hi. I just downloaded the app and spent the money. It does not work. It doesn’t store my preferences for city, say Anthwerp, it will go back to Africa and no apps in memory to fake location.

    It will not give me the option for spoof once, true location once, spoof always, etc.

    Note: I have Privacy installed to block ATT from revealing my location to anyone for publicity reports.

    Please fix this as I want to know if it will work or just get my money back, as I already have a VPN that gives the IP I want it to.

    Please respond.



  13. L.A. Says:

    It says it cant validate my license!!! And I paid for it! Received the paypal recepit! Please fix.

  14. L.A. Says:

    Hi there mate! Well, it now shows a point in the map using google maps different from where i am at the moment. Different continent, actually.

    Question, how does this work with Mail? What does the spoof consist in? Will it fake IP address? Or how will it influence perception of location? Also, how easy is for anyone to detect the spoof?

    I think it just fakes your GPS location via the CoreLocation API, it has nothing to do with IP address or anything else you can think of.

    Cool. Allows me to use the NBA league pass app in Canada with no blackouts

  20. Anonymous Says:

    Works perfect with nba league pass BUT it conflicts with snappy, a program that allows to open the camera by pressing from the springboard. The thing is that whenever I try to open it the iPhone freezes. think that it pretends to take out the menu asking what action to take about the gps and then it just freezes. I tried to add snappy into the never ask list but it won’t show up in such list as this program has no springboard icon…. any advise?

  21. Horoscope911 Says:

    lets say im a hacker and i have an app that requires location and use it to im others well with this package i can fake it so no one knows were i am.

  22. AlJaMa Says:

    Would this work for data roaming? Could you ostensibly spoof your phone’s location, and use your data in another country?

  28. M Says:

    I’m trying to access BBC iplayer pages, but even though I have Location Spoofer set to a London, England address, I still get a message saying only UK people can play the files:


    Can anyone play this page in Safari on their iPhone without seeing a UK Only message?

    ALSO, what is the purpose of the Horizontal, Verticle, and Altitude settings? Do I need something special in there to portray a UK address?

    I do have both Safari turned on in Location Spoofer.

    The perfect cellular data toggle for OS 3.2 (iPad) and 4.0! by Yllier

    Enable/Disable cellular data! This toggle uses the same functionality iOS uses in its Preferences.app! this is no dirty hack.

    When cellular data is disabled the 3G/E-symbol in the status bar is removed so you are always aware what the current status is.

    If you like this toggle, please check out my other apps:

    Firewall iP: Block outgoing connections. Protect your apps, data and privacy and save money. The only Firewall available for iPhone!

    ScreenDimmer: Save battery by using this advanced dimming tool with multiple features.

    ShakeToUnlock: Unlock your device by shake, even if the device is currently sleeping.

    Thanks to phoenix3200 and DHowett for their help!

    mDataToggle is now available for free in Cydia.

    how is this any different from the “data” toggle in SBsettings that is already available? The fact that the 3G icon is removed seems to be the significant difference as far as I can tell.


    Rajiv Reply:
    June 15th, 2010 at 10:35 am

    This uses Apple’s official code implementation to disable the cellular network in (at least) 4.0. The other toggles were using various different methods to block access.

    I’m sorry for this issue even though I didn’t cause it ;)

  30. Mk Says:

    Can this trick my provider in regards to data roaming charges?

  31. Sensible_Guy Says:

    No it will not. This only changes the location that apps accessing location data will be given (the apps that have a > thing in the top right when accessing location). AFAIK Hulu, iPlayer and the like do a reverse lookup of your IP, they DEFINATELY do not get this spoofed data as the webbrowser never supplies this.

  32. Courtney Says:

    I just paid for this app, and I already see I should have stuck with FakeLocation.

    How do you get the coordinates to work? I type them in and nothing moves. Also it’s a pain to have to zoom in each time to load the map. With FakeLocation it takes you directly to where you last were, without having to zoom in a billion times.

  33. Alberto Says:

    Will this work for ATT family map so your cell can’t be tracked through GPS!!!

  34. Dennis Says:

    Can i use location spoofer for App Store?

    hi i lost that red icon from app icant chang my location now how can i get it back i delet it and i install it again but it doesnt work

  40. Big Web Says:

    Same thing happened to me. I was changing my location and as soon as I released the bullseye, it went off the map, and never to be seen again. Please help.

  41. Kimcheed Says:

    Not working on 4.2.1

  42. Alex Says:

    Hy I bought this from Cydia and it won’t work says you can’t validate license- on 4.2.1 any fIx?

  43. victor Says:

    i dont know i am wonder that same question. Can someone please answer!!

  44. Mike Perry Says:

    I bought this from the Cydia store, but when I try to use the app I get an error message saying it can’t validate my licence.

    I have an iPad on iOS 4.2.1 Jailbroken with red snow and greenpois0n.

    I sent an e-mail to the app author, he said he’s fixed the licence server, but the app still won’t work.

    IMHO don’t buy this app!

  45. Jenny Says:

    you guys can try location spoofer on app store. just search location spoofer

  46. Jenny Says:

    btw, location spoofer is a legal app on app store. so it doesn’t require jailbreak. it is only 99 cents. and it works great for me.

  47. Cameron Says:

    No, because the roaming is based on the network your phone connects to; not where it says it is. The nearest/strongest cell site defines this.

  48. Eric Says:

    Any chance we could get the ability to save locations, maybe 10-15 so we don’t have to find them each time in the map? With that, this would be the perfect app!

  49. brian Says:

    ^^ A bookmarking option would be great for us to save/bookmark locations. Also would it be possible to incorporate toggling the satalite view?

  50. Jeremy Says:

    Umm.. but it completely ruins geo based apps, as the users can just fake their location, right, genius?

  51. Fenderless Says:

    AlJaMa you sneaky little twit… :)

  52. Courtney Says:

    I agree completely. Bookmarking would make this app infinitely better. I still think this app is truly awful compared to FakeLocation, which isn’t saying much because that’s not the best app either. I hope one of these apps gets a nice overhaul with some new feature sometime soon. Seems they are neglected.

  53. Josh Says:

    I want to use this to fool MLB At Bat 2011 so I can watch blacked out games. Does anyone know if it will work for sure? Also I’m on 4.2.1.

  54. Thomas Says:

    @Josh – yes it works perfectly for MLB – I’m watching a local game right now :) … and I am also on 4.2.1. Enjoy!

  55. Doug Says:

    This app works perfectly for me. But, is there a way I can change the map to the “hybrid map” view? I looked via iFile but could not find the specific string to change.

  56. SW Says:

    This is an awesome app, but after installing it, no matter what settings I have tried within the app, my navigation app Copilot Live, no longer can detect my location. I don’t even get the pop-up asking if I want to spoof the location. Help!

  57. Paul Says:

    I have the same problem. CoPilot Live GPS software will not work with LocationSpoof installed. No matter what settings I use, it will refuse to find my location. After uninstalling LocationSpoof, CoPilot is working fine again.

  58. Joe breezy Says:

    I downloaded and I can’t find the bullseye marker. I can’t set the location without the marker please help

    Need to know if this thing will trick Netflix into thinking I’m in the U.S. to view their catalog… any luck with this so far? From what I’ve read, it spoofs for apps that use location services, but I’m not sure that Netflix does something as simple as that to determine what catalog to load…

  71. Banks Says:

    Anyone find a problem to the disappearing Bullseye/red dot

    I see alot of people have the same problem I’m having

    When I go to Mobile Maps it’s shows I’m in left upper corner and in the “LocSpoof” app there is no bullseye.

    I looked through iFile to see of I can mess with the setting bit the plist is only a few lines..

    Is it using ip? ( because I’m on wifi) if it is, how can I fake ip on iPhone to make it show I’m in another location

  89. a pissed customer Says:

    This app’s interface sucks it needs to be revised so that your location can be switched quickly and maybe a quicker way to only enable it on certain programs instead of having to scroll down a mile long list, and it doesn’t have bookmarks for your locations. also good luck if you can get it to work properly! i play shadow cities a gps based game and i bought and payed for this app, and every time i try to login to shadow cities it cannot find my location while this app is installed. so i have to uninstall the location spoofer app in order to play. i have contacted everyone listed to contact if you have a problem and that was over 8 days ago and i still haven’t gotten a response. i feel like i have been robbed. i asked for the app to be fixed or a refund of my money and all i get for a response is nothing! i should have purchased fake location app because it worked great when i tested it in the trial, but i didn’t like the way they wanted you to pay for it at another site. As of this moment i give this location spoofer app no stars, and i suggest looking for a different app. don’t waste your money here on this one its complete garbage!!!!

    I’m using this in Indonesia to try to watch Netflix and ABC Player. I have the app installed and I have my location set to the US, however, both apps still tell me I cannot view content because i’m out of the country. In other words, the spoofer isn’t working. I have tried resetting my ipad2 (OS 5.0.1) as well as closing and re-opening the apps. Nothing works. Any ideas?

    If not, you need to change the description of your app: “Location Spoofer allows you to get around all of the location specific locks that some apps put in place to prevent you from viewing content in certain regions..”

    This is why I bought this app, and it’s not doing what it says it does.

  101. Michael Says:

    The developer has been ignoring me for over a month. Just emailed again today…we’ll see what happens. I had the license validation error since version 1.2-1 and I was told that 1.3-1 would fix that, but it hasn’t. This is not acceptable for a paid app. Anyone know how to demand a refund from Cydia?

  102. swiss guy Says:

    How many mistunderstandings here:
    I am not en expert and just recently purchased Location Spoofer. Location can be determined by the IP-adress, by the cell phone network location information or by the built-in GPS. Location Spoofer fakes only the GPS-determined location. People wanting to access information like TV or videos, that check your IP to find out if you’re in an good location, will be disappointed.
    Just my 2 cents :-)

  103. Bob Says:

    Does this work on 3G data?

    I was hoping to stream MLB.tv but I’d be on 3G, not Wi-Fi?
