Whatsapp is one of the most famous mode of communication people use and it alone transacts over two billion Whatsapp users and billions of message exchanges every day. Newly added features such as video calls and sharing of live locations have made Whatapp one of the best and all-rounder applications in terms of social connectivity.
Although Whatsapp allows you to share your real-time location with anyone on your contact list if you choose to share it. However, there are many ways you can also mask your location and share a fake live location with your Whatapp iPhone.
Such a trick can help in many ways where you don’t actually wish to share the reallocation, maybe you don’t want to let your boss know that you’re enjoying your vacation in Bali while taking a sick leave to stay at home. So if you wish to tackle such a situation, then the best way is to share a fake live location using Whstapp on your iPhone and save yourself from being tracked.
Ways to Share Fake Live Location on Whatsapp iPhone
To share fake live locations on WhatsApp from your iPhone, there is a special third-party application. Since Apple does not allow users to do any kind of location tampering to protect its user’s privacy, you can’t just download any app and fake your GPS location. However, if you do it by using several software available for your Mac or Windows. Down below we will share three methods to share fake live locations on Whatsapp iPhone with and without jailbreak.
Share Fake Location Screenshot on Whatsapp iPhone (No Jailbreak)
This is not really a method, but rather just a gimmicky trick. Instead of sending your live location, you can take a fake screenshot of your location and send them to the recipient over Whatsapp. It is not very reliable as it’s not a live location, but something is better than nothing when you wish to share a fake location.
First, download Change my location from Appstore.
Open the app and search for any location which you intend to fake.
Take a screenshot of the user interface and share it over Whastapp.
This is not very reliable as sharing live location, but without jailbreak or without PC, this is the best you can do. But if you have a PC, then the below method can help you spoof your live location on iPhone.
Share Fake Live location on Whatsapp iPhone via PC/Mac (No Jailbreak)
Now if you do not have jailbreak privileges on your iPhone, then it is sad to say no app from Appstore will help you spoof your location. Apple simply does not allow users to spoof their location for privacy and security reasons.
Although if you do have access to a Mac or Windows PC, then you may use some tools to fake your location, and no jailbreak is required for this procedure.

The software has more options such as realistic mode which can mimic your movement as real, and you can also set the speed of your motion for walking or driving. Especially useful if you wish to show that you’re driving a car in Newyork, while in reality, you’re just being lazy on your home couch.
