Snapchat has quickly become the go-to social media app for young people due to its image based communication model. One of the most popular features of Snapchat is its wide range of filters that users can apply to their images with location filter being one of them. The Snapchat location filter makes it easy to share your location with your friends.

This article will explain how to use the location filter and how to add a fake location on Snapchat Location Filter.

Part 1: What is Snapchat Location Filter?

A Snapchat location filter also known as a Geofilter allows Snapchat to use your current location and display it on a photo or video. There are many Snapchat location filters that users can choose from to share their location with their friends.

These filters only work when Snapchat has access to your location and your location is automatically detected and displayed on your snaps through location filters. Keep in mind that the location filter is not to be confused with Snapchat lenses which are entertaining effects that are applied before capturing a snap. You can only apply a Snapchat location filter after you have captured a photo or video.
