This extension alters browser Geolocation latitude and longitude to user-defined values
What is Spoof Geolocation?
"Spoof Geolocation" is a Firefox extension that provides flexibility and control over your geolocation reporting. It can report custom latitude and longitude values even if the GEO device is not present or is disabled globally. This add-on also spoofs permissions to grant access to GEO location. Users can alter their GEO access and test the changes using several online tools.
Description: This extension spoofs the reported GEO location. It works even if the GEO device is not present or even when it is disabled globally. If the "navigator.geolocation" object is not detected, the extension uses a polyfill instead. You can optionally deny or allow GEO access from the right-click context menu over the action button.
Features: Reports custom latitude and longitude values Works even if the GEO device is not present Spoofs "permissions" to grant GEO access
How to test this extension? Go to the "https://webbrowsertools.com/geolocation/" website. After the first visit, you will get a prompt to enter your latitude and longitude data. Use the default one or provide yours. The extension is going to use these data on all subsequent requests.
Use the right-click context menu to disallow GEO access. You can refresh the page to see the result.
What is the recommended value for latitude and longitude? Based on your browser's proxy configuration (SOCKS5 is recommended mode), visit "https://webbrowsertools.com/ip-address/" to get the location from your IP address. Now use "https://www.latlong.net/" to convert this location to latitude and longitude data.
