How to fake location on Snapchat map

There are many reasons why you might want to spoof your location on the Snapchat map. You might want to convince your friends that you are somewhere when you aren’t, or you are tired of people seeing your precise location. Whatever your reason, many people wonder, is it possible to fake your location on Snapchat? The answer to that is YES, and this article will show how to fake location on Snapchat.

1. Use Xcode to Fake Location on Snapchat Map (iOS)

Xcode is a set of developer tools for iOS devices supported by Apple. You can use Xcode to fake your location on Snapchat. This is because developers often want to test their apps in different locations of the world remotely. Xcode allows developers to do this. This can also be used to change your location on the Snapchat map. Xcode requires more technical skills than the other methods introduced in this post. To use Xcode, you will need:

  • A Mac computer/laptop
  • An Apple ID account

To change your Snapchat map location using Xcode:

  1. Install Xcode on your Mac from the Apple store and launch it.
  2. Create a new Xcode project.
  3. Choose “single view application” and assign a name, organization name, and organization identifier to the application. These can be anything you want.
  4. Save the application to your disc and choose “create”.
  5. Choose “Fix Issue” if you get a popup.
  6. Plug in your iPhone to your Mac.
  7. Choose “device type” in the top left region of the window, next to your project name, and pick your device.
  8. Unlock your iPhone.
  9. Choose “debug” in the top bar on your Mac and select “Simulate location”.
  10. Pick one of the locations from the list or use a GPX file with a custom location to get the precise location you want.

2. Use Fake GPS Location App to Fake Snapchat Location (Android)

On Android devices, you can use an application from the Google Play Store called “Fake GPS location”. To use this application, developer options must be enabled. You can check how to enable developer options for your Android device by searching how to do it on Google. Once developer options have been enabled:

  1. Download the “Fake GPS location” application from the Play Store.
  2. Go to Developer options and choose Select mock location app. Then set the downloaded application as the mock location app. If you are not able to find Developer options, you need to enable it first.
  3. Open the “Fake GPS location” application and choose a location you want to set your Snapchat map as.

This will set your Snapchat map location, and your phone’s GPS to whichever location you pick. However, this method is not always reliable and may not work with some applications, such as augmented reality games.
