Despite the fact that the Internet is an open network without borders, many times we find geographical restrictions on certain websites, especially those for streaming movies and series. “This service is not available in your country” is a phrase that we find more and more.
Today we go to the Internet for almost everything without being very aware of the amount of information that many of the sites we visit obtain from us. Surely on occasion, we have found that when trying to watch a YouTube video or a Netflix movie, a message appears indicating that the service or content is not available in our area or area. That’s when we ask ourselves, how can you know where we are? The answer is found in the term geoblocking. We are going to show everything we need to know about geographic restrictions.
There is no doubt that it is one of the most annoying topics for most of the users who surf the Internet daily, especially for those who like to watch series, movies, videos or listen to music through the Internet. And it is that when we talk about geoblocking we refer to the restrictions that prevent us from enjoying certain online content depending on our location. As you all know, any modern smartphone has an internal GPS chip which allows it to determine its current geographic location. Due to the closed nature of iOS, it is not possible to install any app that controls this manually, from the iPhone itself – but you will be able to do it with Dr. Phone Virtual Location, the iOS GPS Spoofing tool available for both macOS and Windows.
The software is very simple to use and only requires you to connect your iPhone to your computer using your own Lightning to USB cable. There, you have a window with a map and you can control your location in various ways.
Virtual Location allows you to move from one location to another in three different modes:
– “Teleportation”: it is immediate, but it can cause problems with certain apps.
– From one point to another: as if it were conventional locomotion in a map app, and you can even set the speed of the route – on foot, by bicycle or by car.
– Or even free form, either by clicking on multiple points on the map or using a kind of “joystick”.
If the idea is to use the tool in apps and games, the ideal is to avoid “teleportation” mode as much as possible so as not to run the risk of your account being blocked.
The purposes of such a utility (fake GPS for iOS) are the most varied, such as cheating on a little game, using for geolocation-based dating apps, accessing some unavailable streaming content where you are, or any other personal or professional need. There, it’s up to you.
Dr.Fone Virtual Location can be downloaded and tried for free [ZIP], and your subscription varies from approximately US $ 5 / month (in annual payment) to US $ 10 / month (in monthly payment), valid for use with up to five devices. Now, faking location on iPhone is not difficult anymore.
