Function: Allow fictional locations enabled

What does that mean?

The Android operating system has a “hidden” function that, when activated, allows some apps to change the device's location.

These location change apps do not work when this function is disabled.

When this function is appearing in the system, it means that the User has enabled this function, being able to use an application at any time to change its position.



On the Play Store, there are several apps, like Fake Gps, that allow a person to change their real location. That way, the person can say that he is anywhere.

This message will only appear if the employee enables this function, which is hidden in the developer menu, located in the Android operating system.

How to Disable Dummy Location

On Android, go to Settings > Developer Options and in the debug section disable “Allow mock locations”.
