There are numbers of reasons you need to fake your current location in Snapchat app. For whatever reason is, I’m here to help you change the location on Snap Map of the Snapchat app on your iPhone. You will soon have your bitmoji hanging out in the greatest places even when you are not in those places.
Fortunately, you can now use the coolest Geofilters from the world. Your friends will feel jealous when you know how to fake Snapchat location, even if your phone is not jailbroken.
In the recent update, Snapchat released a new feature, called Snap Map. If you have previously used the geofilter tag to show your friends your location, you will know that it’s not entirely “new”. Before Snap Map, you have to take a shot, swipe through the available filters to find out a cool design for your current location.
But, with Snap Map feature, you now don’t need to do any of that. Snapchat will automatically detect your current location and then stick your Bitmoji on “world map.”
There are a lot of reviews about the new Snap Map feature. Some users liked it since they can show off their location without the need for posting to the story. Others feel it as a creepy feature when opening up a chance for stalkers.
Methods To Hack Snapchat Location
In this post, I am going to show you several ways, which can be applied to change your iPhone GPS location without the need for leaving your home. Apart from that, I will also show you simple steps to hide your location from anyone who usually keeps an eye on where you are.
You know how to spoof your Snapchat location without jailbreaking and installing tweaks on your iPhone. All you need is to pick the option that meets your needs.
Fake Location In Snapchat Using XCODE & A Mac
The first method I would like to fake your Snapchat location is to use your iPhone, a Mac with the Xcode software already installed on your computer.
Step 1: Launch Mac App Store, search for Xcode app and install it on your Mac. Remeber to enter your Apple ID when prompted
Step 2: Once done, open Xcode > click on Single View app and click on Next
Step 3: Set the product name (GeoSpy) and click on Next. Xcode now needs to setup GIT.
Step 4: Open Terminal on your Mac, copy, edit and run the GIT commands from Xcode window into Terminal
Note: Make sure you have already set up Development Team.
Step 5: Plug your iPhone into your Mac and unlock it. If it’s the first time your phone is connected, Xcode will need time to process some files.
Step 6: It’s time to move your Bitmoji. Click on Debut > Simulate location and choose your favorite location.
It’s the only way that you could y make your friends think you are traveling aboard without them.
How To Hide Yourself On Snapchat Completely
If you don’t like Snap Map feature, you can then disable it using an inbuilt feature called “Ghost Mode.” Once it’s enabled, Ghost Mode will then prevent Snapchat from showing off your current location on Snap Map. Thus, no one, even including your friends, is able to locate you on Snapchat if you do not share it through a photo with the added filter.
- First, open Snap Map, and then tap Settings icon locating at the upper right-hand corner. Toggle the switch next to Ghost Mode.
- You will then see a status that is changed from “Once enabled, your friends cannot see your location.” to “Removing your last location from Map…”
Fake Your Location On Snapchat With Cydia App
Enabling Ghost Mode is a good way of protecting your privacy location from Snap Map. But, there is another way, I think it is cooler, is to spoof your Snapchat location. With this option, your iPhone needs to be jailbroken so that you can use and install Cydia Apps.
Before the release of Snap Map, you could previously fake your iPhone location to change the geo filter tag without having to move an inch. So, the same concept can also be applied to Snap Map.
- The first thing to prepare is a modified Snapchat version. You can obtain it through apps like Snapchat++, Phantom for Snapchat. I usually use the Snap+ IPA file for my work.
- After the app is installed, open it and tap on the location icon at the top right Select your favorite location and tap on Confirm. Wait for Snapchat app to start updating.
- Now, just launch Snap Map and check if your Bitmoji has moved to the chosen place earlier.
That’s all. You will now have options in case you want to prevent Snapchat from showing off your location on Snap Map.
Note: This method is applied for both jailbroken and non-jailbroken iOS devices.
What To Do If Snapchat ++ Does Not Work
Snapchat++ is currently the most reliable contestant when installing it without the need for the jailbreak. But, in fact, it does not work for every Snapchat users. Whenever there is an error message that says, “Could not connect. Please check your connection and try again,” you should wait for a few minutes before signing back in.
If Snapchat++ still doesn’t work, the last resort is to jailbreak your iPhone. It’s still the best method when coming to location spoofing. You don’t need to use any modified Snapchat version. Once your iPhone is jailbroken, simply install some tweaks like GPSCheat or FakeLocation. Any of those packages can easily fake your current iPhone location to any places you want.
