The WhatsApp application takes advantage of the GPS capabilities of current mobile phones, as well as data networks, to obtain our location and be able to send it to our contacts. In this article we explain a very simple trick that you can use to send a fake location through WhatsApp .
WhatsApp is an application that offers us two options when it comes to sending our location to one of our contacts. On the one hand, we can send our location at the same moment, and on the other hand we can send our location in real time in a period of 15 minutes, one hour or 8 hours.
