Although Android OS lets you spoof your GPS location by simply enabling Developer Options from the phone settings, it’s not as easy as that on the iPhone. Before now, you would need to jailbreak your iOS device to enable mock location and this is not a process everyone is comfortable with. It is common knowledge that jailbreaking your device voids the warranty and opens your phone up to attacks. Besides, jailbreaking is no longer a walk in the park as it used to be.
Introducing Foneazy MockGo
This is where Foneazy MockGo comes in. This nifty app lets you fake your location on any iOS device without jailbreak. But why would someone want to enable a fake location on a mobile device anyway? There are several reasons and on top of this list is geo-restriction. Certain apps won’t just be fooled with a VPN and perform extra checks on your GPS location to determine exactly where you’re located. Location-based games like Pokemon Go, Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, Geocaching, and so on are a lot more fun if you could move around. But what if you would still like to play these games without leaving the comfort of your home?
How does MockGo GPS Spoofer work?
Using this app is easy. It doesn’t matter if you’re tech-savvy or not as the user interface is simple and straightforward. As a matter of fact, the simplified UI might even make one underestimate what this app is capable of. All you have is one big map with different icons, each performing specific functions.
– To get started, you need to connect the Apple device (iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch) through USB and launch the application.
– Accept the Disclaimer and click the Start button.
– The app may ask you to unlock your device to proceed. This is needed for the app to function.
– The app should now display a map showing your current location.
– From this interface, type your desired location in the designated bar located at the top-left. When the place is located, click Move Here to teleport to the location.
– You will receive a warning about the dangers of abruptly changing your location. It is advised that you close any app using your GPS location on your iOS device before proceeding. However, if you’re certain there shouldn’t be any issues, ignore this and click the Teleport button.
– This will immediately change your iPhone or iPad’s location to the one chosen on the app.
Keep in mind that you don’t need to keep your phone connected to your device to keep your fake location active. The fake location will still be maintained even after disconnecting your iOS device from the computer. However, restarting your device will reset your location to the actual one. The official website has more guidelines on how to use MockGo efficiently.
What else does MockGo have to offer?
Considering the fact that certain apps have security measures in place to detect location spoofing, MockGo comes with a set of features and tools that make your spoofing as realistic as possible.
One-Stop Mode: This mode allows you to drop a pin on the map and simulate moving to the marked location. You can choose between walking, cycling, or driving speed to get to your location.
Multi-Stop Mode: Just like the One-stop mode mentioned above, this feature lets you drop multiple pins on the map and move through the chosen points.
GPX File import: A GPS Exchange Format file (.gpx) is simply a file containing GPS data such as waypoints, tracks, and routes. MockGo allows you to import such files into the software to define your desired location and routes.
Joystick controls: With a joystick control, you can control your movement on the map manually if you choose not to use any of the automatic modes (one-stop and multi-stop).
Realistic mode: When this is selected, the app simulates real-life movement by adding -30% to +30% variations to the selected speed.
Multi-device support: MockGo lets you operate up to five devices at a time. I actually put this to test and was able to manage two different Apple devices at a time without issues.
Favorite locations and routes: Instead of typing your location every time and placing pins on the map every now and then, you could simply save your locations and routes as favorites. This lets you re-use them with ease whenever you wish.
Is Foneazy MockGo worth it?
This is an app that saves you the trouble of jailbreaking your device to spoof your location. On top of that, it does its job perfectly well and puts a lot of tools in your hands to make your experience s smooth as possible. MockGo has a low detection rate and is quite safe to use.
The pricing is flexible, starting at only $9.95 per month. The one-year plan costs $39.95 while the lifetime plan surprisingly costs only $59.95. Whether you’re going for the monthly plan or the lifetime plan, MockGo is worth every penny.
