Location Guard

Testing software may involve testing certain locations. Chrome uses various means to track your location and pass that information to websites. Some of the data is based on Wifi and browser settings.

Location Guard allows you to fake your location. This makes it easy to test the functionality of the site against various locales around the world. For example, Canada has rules about requesting email on websites.

Product Description

Location Guard is a browser extension that allows to protect your location while using location-aware websites, by adding controlled noise to it.

Latest updates to Chrome might have made this extension non-working. According to many reviews, the extensions are not working 100% of the time.

I'll test it against Google Maps and other sites to see if it still not working.
