How to make a fictitious location (GPS) of a smartphone?

When the GPS function is activated on any modern smartphone, users voluntarily provide information about their location to installed applications. Of course, you can simply disable GPS or revoke the permission from such applications to access the location, but the problem is that many of them will subsequently become unusable. The TailorGo spoofer  solves this problem by replacing the real location of the smartphone with any other that the user himself specifies.

TailorGo doesn’t just help with privacy issues. If there is a desire to play a trick on someone (for example, on followers on any social network), passing off a fictitious location as a real one, this can be easily arranged. Also, many users use TailorGo in mobile games by binding to GPS coordinates. A prime example is Pokemon Go. With the help of this program, Pokémon can be caught even in the Vatican itself.

Why is the TailorGo program needed?

By and large, the TailorGo program has only one single function – the generation of fictitious GPS coordinates, which are subsequently sent to the smartphone, and then fall into the possession of the launched mobile applications. The latter “think” that the phone is really located at the point of the world map where the user wants it. The given fictitious location will also be transmitted to the owners of the Internet services. Moreover, with the help of TailorGo, you can even emulate movement around the map at a given speed.

And here the question arises – why is all this necessary? Here are some simple examples:

  • If a mobile application persistently asks for access to a location, and it is impossible to use it without this.
  • Many modern bloggers, without leaving their city, declare to their subscribers that they are somewhere on a journey. The only “proof” provided for this is the geotag under the photograph, which was taken in some room or in front of a fashion boutique.
  • If you want to play a trick on a friend or girlfriend by sending “your” coordinates. Tell us that you have left somewhere in Siberia and will not return soon, confirming this by sending a screenshot of the window of any mobile GPS navigator, be it 2GIS, Yandex Navigator, Google Maps or any other application. If you need even more convincing proof of the “move”, no one bothers to send your fictitious coordinates in a message to the interlocutor using the corresponding function in the messenger, for example, “Send My Current Location” in the iMessage app for iOS.
  • Due to the fact that the TailorGo program can not only generate static coordinates, but also emulate the user’s movement, it can also be used to deceive applications that track the location and send them to the person who is monitoring the location. For example, the TailorGo program can spoof the coordinates in the popular Find My Friends application, which will surprise your friends with its sudden “move” anywhere in Brazil and Mexico.
  • If you want to chat or even make friends with people living in other countries. Given the fact that many of these applications do not allow users to specify their location manually (it is determined automatically), making acquaintances with users from other countries becomes problematic.

Separately, we would like to note the capabilities of TailorGo, which will appeal to fans of mobile games. We are talking about game projects that are tied to the player’s location. Most of them tend to use augmented reality technology. The most famous of these games is “Pokemon Go”. There are also “Ingress”, “BotFighters”, “Dragon Quest Walk” and many others.

How exactly can TailorGo software help gamers? It’s simple – she can move the player anywhere in the world. You don’t even need to leave your house to catch any rare Pokemon that has appeared on the map in a nearby area. It is enough to give the TailorGo program a command to “teleport” the smartphone to the desired location, and the long-awaited Pokemon, as if by magic, will appear right in the room. In fact, a map of the area will be displayed on the smartphone screen, which will be superimposed directly on the floor of the room.

Setting up the TailorGo program

Let’s consider setting up and using the TailorGo program on the example of an Andriod smartphone. The first thing to do is turn on developer mode, and then activate the “Debugging via USB” and “Install via USB” function:

1.  Open “Settings” and go to the “About phone” section:

2.  Here you will need to find an item with the assembly number of the mobile operating system (for some smartphones from the “About phone” section, you will need to additionally open some of the subsections). You need to touch this inscription several times in a row until a message is displayed at the bottom of the screen “You have become a developer!”:

3.  Next, open the main settings page again. Look at the very bottom for “Developer Options” or “For Developers”.

4.  A page with a large number of settings for Android application developers will open. Find among them the option “Debugging via USB” and activate it by confirming the action in the window that appears:

5.  Then activate the “Install via USB” option:

6.  When the procedure is complete, connect your phone to your computer using a USB cable in file transfer mode. Start the TailorGo program. The name of the phone should be displayed in the utility window – select it (if there are several options) and click the “OK” button below it:

7.  The program will display a message about the need to activate USB debugging and grant it permission to use this function:

8.  At the same moment, a window with the text “Allow USB debugging?” Will appear on the phone screen. – click “OK”:

9.  If everything went well, the TailorGo program will display two items with a choice of operating mode: “For Games” and “For Social Apps”. The first is for games, the second is for everything else. For example, we will use the second mode. Just click on it:

10.  At this moment, a notification about the installation of the “TailorGo Assistant” application will appear on the smartphone screen. Click “Install” and wait for the installation to complete:

11.  If the program displays an error “Something went wrong”, and the phone does not display a message about installing the above application, go back to the smartphone settings, and additionally activate the “Debugging via USB (Security Settings)” option:

12.  Reconnect to the phone from the program, start the desired mode of its operation. This time, messages about the installation of the “TailorGo Assistant” application will definitely appear on the smartphone. The program itself will display a message about the need to select an application for fictitious locations on the phone:

13.  To do this, in the USB debugging settings, go to the “Application for mock locations” section and select “TailorGo Assistant” in it.

14.  Immediately after that, the “TailorGo” program will display a map with the real location of the smartphone. This completes the configuration of the program and the phone.

How to use the TailorGo program?

1.  To simply “move” to the desired location, enter the name of the street / district / city / country in the text box in the upper left corner. For example, “Beijing China”.

2.  To transfer the coordinates from the program to the phone, after entering and selecting a location, click on the “Move” button.

3.  From now on, all applications on the phone will “think” that its owner has moved to Beijing. You can check this by running any GPS navigator, for example, 2GIS:

And here is how the function that emulates user movement works (for example, Moscow):

1.  First, in the upper right corner, press the “Navigation Route” button, then enter the name of the location where we want to “go” into the text field on the left, or simply click with the mouse on any point on the map:

2.  In the menu on the left, you can set the speed of “movement” from 3.6 to 36 km / h and even tell the program how much you need to “move” from the beginning of the route to its end, and in the opposite direction (to do this, enter the number in ” Move “).

3.  You can even open a GPS navigator on your phone. It will also record the “movement” of the device.

That’s all. Now you know how to quickly and easily use mock locations on your smartphone.
