How To Change Location On Google Chrome

Are you interested in accessing content restricted to certain regions or just want to ensure your privacy while you surf the internet? Changing your location on Google Chrome can help! In this blog post, we’ll walk you through the simple instructions to modify your location settings on Google Chrome.

Step 1: Open Google Chrome Developer Tools

Firstly, you need to access the Google Chrome developer tools. To do this:

  1. Open Google Chrome
  2. Right-click on any page and select Inspect
  3. Alternatively, you can use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+Shift+I (Windows) or Cmd+Option+I (Mac)

Step 2: Access the sensors tab

Once the developer tools are open:

  1. Click on the three-dot menu on the right.
  2. Select More tools, then Sensors.

Step 3: Change the Geolocation

In the “Sensors” tab, you will see a drop-down menu named “Geolocation”.

  1. Click on the Geolocation dropdown menu.
  2. Select Custom location…

Now, you will see two fields, Latitude and Longitude. Here you can enter the coordinates for your desired location. If you are unsure of the coordinates, a quick Google search of ‘latitude and longitude of [desired location]’ will provide you the information.

Step 4: Reload the page

After you’ve entered your desired coordinates:

  1. Close the developer tools window
  2. Refresh the page or press F5 on your keyboard.

Your location is now set to the new coordinates. Websites that require your location information will now see your new location.


Remember that this change is temporary and will reset to your actual location once you close Google Chrome. If you want to consistently appear from another location, consider using a VPN or a proxy server.

Now, you’ve learned how to select a specific geographic location in your Google Chrome browser. Enjoy browsing!
