Overview

Hide your geographic location from websites.

Modern browsers such as Google Chrome can tell websites where you're located in order to provide location-aware functionality. Your geographic location obtained via JavaScript is often highly accurate, which can be a violation of your privacy. This extension allows enjoying geolocation applications while protecting your privacy, by reporting a fake location to websites, after adding a certain amount of "noise" to the real one. The noise is randomly selected in a way that protects the real location from being accurately inferred. There's also an option to use a fixed location, instead of adding noise to the real one. IMPORTANT: Location Guard protects against JavaScript-based geolocation (which has very high accuracy), NOT IP-based geolocation (which typically has low accuracy). If a website detects your coarse location from your IP address, then use a VPN, Location Guard is not meant to solve this problem. To report an issue with Location Guard please use the following page: https://github.com/chatziko/location-guard/issues

Extension hasn't been updated in some form since March 2022. Update may also means it was updated by Google themselves for privacy reasons. It doesn't necessarily mean the developer undated the extension. Instructions for the extension are NOT clear even in the demo. Search feature is broken. I went to Google Maps, Bing Maps. Guess what...it showed my actual location. I selected FIXED LOCATION. I verified it was a weird location. Why is that? Because Google, Bing, and most every website ... Show more

This app is only supposed to help hide your location because of crazy people out there. But for many apps you have to have your location posted so I give this app 5 stars. its doing exactly what its supposed to do. I would only use if your a drop shipper or only sell online.
