How to change dating location on Facebook

 If you’re seeking a relationship, Facebook Dating is a great place to start. 

Facebook Dating, like Hinge and unlike location-based Tinder and Bumble, will not change the location of your dating profile based on your physical location.

Keeping your location updated is a plus point as it enables you to find matches from the place you are at.

So, here is how you can change your Facebook Dating location:

At the top of your screen, click the three horizontal bars/lines.

Select “Dating”.

Then select “Profile.”

Select “Edit” from the menu.

Select “Dating Location” from the drop-down menu.

Make changes to your dating location.

Click on “Save”.

There are three more ways by which you can change your location:

GPS

A GPS location app can modify your IP address. Search the Google Play or App Store for one for your Android or iOS smartphone, accordingly. The Dr Fone app for Android and iOS devices, which is available for free on both platforms, can be used.

VPN

When you connect to a VPN, your device’s real IP address is hidden and replaced with the IP address of the server you’re connected to, so Facebook won’t know where you are. Most VPNs are available to use as long as you keep your subscription active, but they aren’t a viable long-term solution for altering your IP address.

Proxy

Proxy servers only function on a particular website or app, but most VPNs encrypt all of your web activity across all browsers and apps.
