    Hi, as probably a lot of people know, Facebook has the bad habit of only testing new features with US/UK citizens.

    I tried to fake my location with a highly anonymous proxy, I disabled the location finder, I erased the cache and data, logged in and out multiple times. But Facebook still knew I was not in the US therefore not giving me the latest features, like Live Video for example.

    Is there any way/thing I could try to fake my location to appear as I am in the US?

    Wouldn`t that be exactly like a highly anonymous proxy from the US? Besides, finding a US vpn on android without having to pay a monthly fee is really hard, if not impossible.

    bump. no one? it seems facebook still knows your location no matter if you use a vpn/proxy. Does anyone here know how they track you, and if there are workarounds?

    Webrtc disabled? Time zone on your computer the same as the time zone as proxy location?
