This informative piece provides you with details on how to spoof location on Pokémon Go with VMOS. Let’s get started!

Part 1. What is VMOS? Is It Safe to Use? 

VMOS is a virtual machine (VM) based software that allows you to run another complete Android system on your phone with its interface, settings, Play Store, and Google account. It is an independent system that enables you to have more social accounts that work on one phone. Any phone with 3GB RAM and 32GB storage can install it. This Android virtual machine tool makes it easy to spoof your location to anywhere you want. 

VMOS is safe to use since it allows you to create a virtual space on your phone and access two different Android systems on the same device. It means you can create a separate Android system in one device, which can be used to spoof location on Pokémon go without getting banned. 

Part 2. Does VMOS Still Work for Pokémon Go? 

Yes, you can still use VMOS for Pokémon Go. Although VMOS had challenges coping with the Pokémon Go update, the developers finally fixed it by allowing users to play Pokémon Go virtually after receiving several user complaints. Avoiding high jumps in the game is another intelligent way to stay safe. 

Part 3. Can I Use VMOS without Rooting?
