However, another option offered by WhatsApp is the possibility of sending our location with an error of approximately twenty meters. Although this may be useful, we may want to send another “fake” location. Here we will explain how to do this on both Android and iPhone.
How to send fake location on WhatsApp – Android Direct method (Without app)
The first option is to use the WhatsApp application itself. You don’t need to use any third-party app on your Android phone to send fake location on WhatsApp. Just follow steps described as below:
Step 1: For this, we access the contact to which we will send the location and click on the paperclip icon. Now, you will find several options like Document, Camera, Gallery, Audio, Location and Contact icon. In order to send fake location on WhatsApp, you have to click on Location option.
Step 3: Now you need click on the square icon at the top left corner of the screen. When clicking on this option, the following window will be displayed.
The red pointer indicates where we are currently with a margin of error of 20 meters.
Step 4: There, just drag that pointer to a different location on the map you want to send to your contact.
Step 5: Once we have selected the location that we want, click on “Send this location” and in this way we have sent a fake WhatsApp location.
How to send fake location on WhatsApp – iPhone Direct Method (Without app)
In iPhone, the process that we have to follow is practically the same as the one we just saw on Android. For this reason, we don’t provide the images required. But if you need any photos and let us know in comment section.
Step 1: At first, we have to go to the WhatsApp contact to chat with him/her.
Step 2: As we want to send the false location to that contact, you need to select “send location“.
Step 2: Once the GPS opens, we have to select the tab with a location on the right side of the screen.
Step 3: Now we will put on the screen with a blue pin which we must move to the location we want to send to the selected contact.
Step 4: Once we have the chosen site, we select “Send this location“.
Note: The problem with this is the address will be written under the location. In that case, our contact knows that this only happens if we are not sending the real-location, he will know that the location sent is false. To overcome this problem, we will see another method through a free application.
