As you may have heard by now, both webpages and Android apps can sometimes behave differently if they think that you were somewhere else instead of where you currently are. Think of the many apps and services that, for example, don’t work if you’re outside of a certain area or take in consideration a good laugh for making a joke on WhatsApp. Yes, you can learn to send Fake Location on WhatsApp in Android right away!

I adore using WhatsApp, but there are some major drawbacks in WhatsApp – as some may say – including the location sharing feature. This might affect your privacy and you can end up in a situation where you simply have to share your location status to one of your friends even though you don’t want that in the first place.

  2. Toggle the button to On;
  3. Also verify that WhatsApp is allowed to access your GPS location;
  4. Go to WhatsApp and choose the chat of contact that you have in mind;
  5. You just have to use the button on the top right to send location and use the search option if you want to send fake location;

If someone has shared a fake location then the location will come with the address text and red pin dropped on left hand side and if someone shared his/her original location then the location will come with only a dropped red pin and no text.
