This extension allows you to customize your browser's settings to appear as if you are accessing the internet from a different location, locale, or device. This can be useful for testing websites, bypassing regional restrictions, or protecting your privacy online. With just a few clicks, you can change your time zone, locale, geolocation, and user agent to match your desired settings.
Most extensions that provide these features rely on content scripts to inject script tags into web pages. There are many limitations to script tag injections which you can read about here: https://palant.info/2020/12/10/how-anti-fingerprinting-extensions-tend-to-make-fingerprinting-easier
Vytal utilizes the chrome.debugger API to spoof this data instead. This allows the data to be spoofed in frames, web workers and during the initial loading of a website. It also makes the spoofing completely undetectable.
You can test and compare Vytal and other extensions on https://vytal.io
Vytal is free, collects no data and signup is not required.
While spoofing data a notification bar becomes visible. Hiding the bar can be done by using the --silent-debugger-extension-api flag. Instructions on how to run chrome with flags: https://www.chromium.org/developers/how-tos/run-chromium-with-flags
