What is Mock Location Prevention?

Mock location prevention refers to the actions taken to stop people from using fake or simulated GPS coordinates on a mobile device. These actions ensure that location-based apps and services get accurate and trustworthy location information from the device's GPS receiver, rather than false or made-up location data.

Mock location can be costly for the day-to-day operations of a business that relies on accurate location data. For example, couriers for delivery companies can spoof their location to appear in the city center and accept orders whilst in reality they are sitting at home. This causes longer waiting times, delayed deliveries, unhappy customers, and a potential loss in revenue
