    To play Pokémon Go, you actually have to move from one place to another looking for Pokéstops and Gyms. But sometimes moving from one place to another is just not viable. Perhaps you need to work or you can’t leave home for one reason.

    Being unable to move doesn’t mean that you will be unable to enjoy Pokémon Go. There are ways to fake the GPS on your iPhone and move to another place without leaving your house. In this article, we take a closer look at some of these solutions.

    Use AnyGo

    AnyGo is a third-party tool designed to help you teleport your iPhone’s location to any location in the world without jailbreak. The program has an easy to use interface that can make the seemingly difficult process of faking GPS on your device very easy. It also has features that allow you to simulate movement between two places or along a path on the map.

    Follow these simple steps to use AnyGo to teleport your device to any location in the world:

    Step 1: Download and install the program to your computer. Launch AnyGo and then connect the iPhone to the computer.

    Click “Start” in the main window and you should see a map indicating the current location of the device.

    click the start button

    Step 2: To teleport the device to a new location, click on the “Teleport” icon at the top-right corner of the screen, and then enter the exact location want to use. Click on “Search”.

    Use PokeGo++

    You can use the PokeGo++ app to fake the GPS on your device. To download the PokeGo++ app, you will need to register the device with BuildStore for $11.99 per year. Once the device is registered with BuildStore, follow these simple steps to use it:

    Step 1: Begin by uninstalling the Pokémon Go app from the device.

    Step 2: Install PokemonGo PRO or PokeGo++ via the BuildStore and sign in to your Pokémon Go account.

    Step 3: Open the map screen in the game and then tap on the gear icon at the top left corner of the screen.

    Step 4: Turn on “Fake Location” under “Spoofing”.

    Step 5: Choose “Forever in Time” to save location.

    You can then use the overlay on top of the Pokémon Go app to navigate the character around the map without moving from your current location.

    Use iTools

    You might also be able to successfully fake the GPS location on your iPhone using the iTools program. Follow these simple steps to do it:

    Step 1: Install iTools on your computer and then open it. Connect the iPhone to the computer and then open iTools. In the main window, click on “Toolbox” at the top and then select “Virtual Location”.

    Step 2: Enter the address or the GPS coordinates you want to go to and then click “Go”.

    Use VPN

    Another way to fake the GPS on your iPhone is to use a VPN. VPN works because it hides the IP address on your device, allowing you to switch to any location on the device without Pokémon Go finding out. There are a lot of VPN apps to choose from although we must point out that many of them are paid tools. It is a good idea to choose an app that has a free trial period so you can judge if it is the best solution for you before buying.

    Here’s how to use VPN to fake GPS location on your iPhone:

    Step 1: Open the App Store and select the best VPN app for you. Make sure that Pokémon Go is closed before installing the VPN app.

    Step 2: Open the VPN app on your device and then log in (if you don’t have an account, tap on “Sign Up” to quickly create one.

    log in the VPN app

    Step 3: Once signed in, just tap on the location of your choice and then tap “Connect” to switch the device’s location to the newly selected location.

    choose a location that you would like to use

    You can also go to the VPN app’s settings and choose a country from the list of available servers.

    Use iSpoofer

    You can also use iSpoofer to set up a fake location on your iPhone. Here’s how to do that:

    Step 1: Download iSpoofer on to your computer from the program’s main website. Keep in mind that there are different versions for Windows and Mac.  Launch the program after installation.

    Step 2: Connect the iPhone to the computer using USB cables and then tap on “Trust” on the device when prompted to Trust this Computer.

    Step 3: iSpoofer will download a code-like file that you can use to simulate the fake location on your device.

    Step 4: A map will appear on the next screen. Use the pin on the map to select the location you would like to move to and then click “Move”. This new location will be set on the iPhone.

    Now disconnect the device and open Pokémon Go. The game will display the selected location and you can continue to play the game using the simulated location.
