Life360 remains one of the best ways to keep track of your loved ones. But if you don't want someone else always knowing where you are, you may wonder if there is a way to cheat life 360.
Since this is an app that used GPS location to track devices in the circle, you may think that you can cheat by simply turning off GPS.
In this article, we will show you how you can cheat the Life360 app into thinking you are somewhere else and hence prevent being tracked.
In Life360, you should be able to see the location of every member of the circle at all times, unless they turn off the app or log out of the app.
In this case, you will get a notification letting you know that their device is not connected to the internet or it has been turned off.
If their name has the status 'Background location off,' their phone may be in low-power mode or they've changed their phone's settings to save battery life. However, this usually means you won't be able to track them.
The 'Location permissions off' status indicates that the phone's GPS has been disabled in the Life360 settings.
If you disable location sharing in the phone settings, your location will display the message "Location Sharing Paused" on the map.
Finally, the 'No network or phone off' status indicates that they have turned off their phone or are out of range.
If you're concerned about your privacy and want to hide your Life360 location from anyone knowing, you can choose to spoof your location on Life360, which we will show you next.
One of the best ways to keep Life360 from tracking you is to spoof the location on your iOS device and therefore trick the app into thinking your location is unchanged.
You can do that using the iOS location spoofing tool MockGo. The following simple steps show how to teleport your device on iOS using MockGo:
Step 1: Download and install MockGo on your computer. Open the program after installation.
Step 2: Connect the iPhone to the computer using a USB cable.
Step 3: Select the "Teleport" icon from the options at the top right corner of the screen.
Step 4: Then enter the destination in the search bar. Click "Search."
Step 5: In the popup that appears, click on the "Move Here" button to change the location on your iOS device.
Instead of staying in a fixed location, you can also use MockGo to move along a specified route between two or more predetermined locations.
This will give the impression that you are traveling from one location to another. Here's how to do it:
Step 1: In the upper right corner of the screen, select One-stop or Multi-stop mode.
Step 2: Then, select the destinations you want to pass by. When you mark the locations, a popup will appear that shows the distance. Click the Move Here button to proceed.
Step 3: Then you will need to set the types of loop and input the loop times of the movement.
The bottom panel helps you control the speed of travel, and you can choose between walking, cycling, or driving. If you want to make it natural, check the "Realistic mode".
Step 4: Now click on the "Start" button to start the simulation.
To spoof the location on your Android device, you can use the Fake GPS Location app.
This app is available on the Play Store and it is a simple and very effective way to spoof the location on your device.
Once you have installed the app on your device, follow these steps to set the app and fake the GPS.
Step 1: Open the Settings on your device and tap on "Software Information."
Step 2: Then tap on the "Build Number" seven times and you should see a countdown at the bottom.
Step 3: Once this is done, you should be able to find the developer mode settings at Settings > System > Developer Options.
Step 4: Install the Fake GPS Location app from the Google Play Store.
Step 5: Open the Settings and tap "System".
Step 6: Tap on "Developer Options" and scroll down to "Select "mock location app" and tap on it.
Step 7: Choose the Fake GPS app.
Step 8: Now simply open the app, and use the map to navigate to the location you would like to spoof to. Hit on the green play button and your location will successfully be changed.
The only effective way to avoid getting tracked is to spoof the location. The location spoofing apps make it possible to hide your location on Life360 without anyone knowing.
