Feauture request\suggestion: fake location by app

If you go to settings–>advanced privacy you can see and set tracker, permissions, internet IP for every app. App by app. You can also set a fake location but only for the entire set of application. Why? It should be usefull set a fake location for facebook, google’s bloatwares, amazon, teams, skype and may be not for osmand, organicmaps or magicerath.

Please think about it for the next update.

(kind of wish discourse would have a better history search to surface this)

your request is sensible and most popular tracked issue atm - https://gitlab.e.foundation/e/backlog/-/issues/5595 - see when it is next scheduled.

The voting on features should be outside accounts. Will avoid “me too” comments.


I’ve thought about this too. When I turn on fake location, I wish I could exempt the Maps app.


It’s not absent for a lack of thinking about it, as you can see in the GitLab issue @tcecyk linked to.
Sometimes things are just more complicated than we would hope.

A “me too” comment, even if I already upvoted on gitlab.

With app like findmydevice, it should be mandatory.

Not so useful to discover that your phone is somewhere in the Philippines !!
