Top Ways To Change GPS Location on iPhone and Android

If you’re reading this, you’re certainly familiar with the agony of a notification that says, “This video/game is not available in your area.” Yes, you feel like smashing the screen of your device when you see it. Obviously, there is no way you can physically move to that location. So what do you do? Are you just going to sacrifice your passion?

On top of this, the internet throws large volumes of both fake and vague information whenever you seek a solution. From those long lists of tools, tricks, and location changes, it is hard to decide which one is ideal. Mostly, whenever you type “ How can I change GPS location on my phone?” The ultimate answer is VPN. 

However, in light of the recent cyber-attacks on renowned organizations, security agencies have become smarter. Resultantly, a website recognizes a VPN and does not allow a user to proceed. And the VPNs that genuinely solve the problem are prohibitively expensive.

Fortunately, this article will illustrate how to fake GPS location on iPhone and Android in the comfort of your house. Also, because an IOS restricts these kinds of processes, we shall learn about a software called  Dr.Fone –Virtual location. 

So without further ado, let us get down to business.
