Description from store Change Geolocation (Location Guard) is a browser extension that let you easily change your geographic location to the desired value and protect your privacy. Simply open the addon's options page and set the latitude and longitude for where you want the geolocation to be (the default location is Greenwich, UK). Next, reload a page and check your location (i.e. webbrowsertools.com/geolocation/). Please note that besides latitude and longitude you can set other variables in the geolocation API (see options page). Moreover, pressing on the toolbar icon will activate or deactivate the addon. Note: toolbar button serves as an ON|OFF switch to activate and deactivate the addon. The green color is for ON and the grey color is for the OFF state. To report bugs, please fill out the bug report form on the addon's homepage (https://mybrowseraddon.com/change-geolocation.html).

  • (2023-06-09) James Richards: useless
  • (2023-04-06) Jay Douglass: It doesn't work.
  • (2023-03-21) Pat MySecret: The "gotta watch video" feels like mansplaining, so let me speed it up for you. Right-click icon and tap "what is my location" or options.. that should do ya. I think my extension could be doing more. Reviewer Steve Meet recommends Vyal for more.
  • (2023-02-24) xcapereality: ok
  • (2023-02-08) Tyler: Works great. Please add a dark mode for the options page. Pretty much the only extension I have left that still blinds me on setting it up. And yea option page is a bit bare bones ,a bit in search for figuring out the geolocation coordinates could be good, or at least a link where to find them.

  • (2022-12-13) Chad “6ouls” Galjour: its amazing
  • (2022-11-08) Steve Meet: RECOMMENDATION: Use the 'Vytal' extension instead. It can spoof geolocation, timezone, locale and user agent. Works much better then this one.
  • (2022-10-28) Megenius: Doesn't work at all, no matter how I try it. Use "Search Laboratory Regional SERP Selector" instead.
  • (2022-09-26) Jeremiah Blanch: Doesn't work. Clicking it just takes me to an advertising page, There isn't even a dialog box saying "what location should we chagne to?"

  • (2021-05-04) Chris PC: Works. Simpler to use than other extensions (this one did not require me to create an API key). Five stars. Brownie points for being free.
  • (2021-03-06) J Collins: Does not help with Hulu location streaming rights as described. Yes, I followed the instructions and tried several different cities.
  • (2020-07-28) CPTStarDog: Used in conjunction with NordVPN. Worked very well.

  • (2020-04-16) I A: worked well
  • (2019-10-03) Jonathan Lipnicki: Does what it says on the tin. Changes your GEOlocation. Your location as judged by your IP address, which is often a better indicator, remains unchanged.
  • (2019-08-17) Shad Grk: works perfectly.. thank you very much!!!!!!!
  • (2019-07-24) Michael Elkin: I only works on some sites. On https://mylocation.org/ it changes the geolocation, but on https://www.where-am-i.net/ it does nothing. So it only sometimes works, which means it really does not work.
