Hey Snapchatters (and yes, it’s a real word!!). Today, we’re gonna present you with easy and basic steps on how to add fake location filter on Snapchat.
Read on till the end for the same and without wasting any more time, let’s begin!!
When Snapchat was launched eight years ago, nobody knew the global internet phenomena that it would eventually become.
The 21st-century kids or even teenage and adult population are obsessed with this multimedia messaging app.
One of the many cool features of this app is that you can add a fake location filter or real ones, depending upon your tastes or preferences.
Real location filters are really not a big deal and fairly simple and easy to apply.
But not many users are aware of the knowledge as to how to add fake location filter on Snapchat.
Well, don’t worry. We are here to provide you the solution for the same. Here we go:
Steps to Add Fake location Filter on Snapchat
In order to do this, first of all, you need to install another app called “Phantom” (from a third-party app store called “TweakBox”) for iPhone and in the case of Andriod devices.
With this app, you can do a lot of things to spice up your Snapchat experience, to be honest.
But one of those things is – guess what – our area of concern that is, to add fake location filter on Snapchat. (Yes! FINALLY!!)
So, after you’ve done the installation of the Phantom, you can undertake the following steps to achieve your goal. Here we go:
- Find “Settings” and tap on it.
- Under Apps, find the newly installed “Phantom” app.
- Set whatever options you desire.
- Now, open the Snapchat app.
- Open “Location”. Proceed to change your location.
- When you have decided on your new location, tap on it and keep holding it till the map itself goes away.
What Exactly Are the Benefits Here? (Apart from the obvious!)
First of all, you are able to use the unique location filters from the world around, at ease.
Secondly, if you are conscious of your privacy and are thus, afraid that some random person may hunt you down, then this way, you can use Snapchat and avoid all that fear at the same time.
Finally, it may make for a more aesthetic story or “snap”, raising your Snapchat experience.
Alternate Solution to Hide Your Location
This is not an alternative solution to spoof location filter on Snapchat but just to hide your location for privacy concerns.
Simply turn off your phone location. The steps are easy enough and by doing this, Snapchat and various other apps can’t use your location. Easy peasy!
Word of Caution:
The main process stated above is a form of Jailbreaking your phone and this may very well void the warranty of your iPhone. So, be careful and think through it before applying this method.
Because if you have a brand new iPhone, you may not want to do this and void your warranty so early.
We hope that after following the instructions stated in detail as well taking into consideration the necessary precautions we mentioned, that you were able to succeed and now can add a fake location filter at well.
As mentioned, this is important for a lot of people and for various reasons.
