Changing geolocation might not be what everybody does or what everybody want to because it is a practice done by internet marketer who want to hide their present Geo location to achieve a purpose.
Here are reasons why people usually want to hide or change their geopolitical location:-
(1) To access a website that is not accessible in their location
(2) To register an account where they are not allowed to register
(3) For malicious practice
(4) For gaining access to information that is melt for other country e.t.c
(5) Increase security of wi-fi Hotspots
(6) Get marketer off your Trials
(7) Keep search activity private.
so the reason why you want to change your geopolitical location is best known to you.
Up next  is to see the different ways  you can use to change your geo-location in 2020

Let’s start with some tweaks available in the search query itself.
By changing your search parameters, you can improve your local results.
They will not get you exact localized results but they are ideal for use on the fly.
The first thing you can do is to add “&near=cityname” to your search. This is not a perfect solution, but, it will give you a set of results that are geographically close to your desired location.
As an example, let’s say you wanted to check results for a dentist in Cleveland.
You would first search “dentist.” Then, when they came up, you would go to the search bar. Change the URL, so it reads:
https://www.google.com/search?q=dentist&near=cleveland

Another method is using a VPN
Even if you’ve never used a VPN before, setting one up is very straightforward. Here’s how to change your IP address in Firefox or Chrome with a VPN:
Choose a provider, select a subscription term, and submit your payment.
  1. Download the appropriate VPN software for your device. Most reputable VPN providers offer native apps for Windows, MacOS, iOS, and Android.
  2. Log in using your username and password (which will be provided when you signed up).
  3. Connect to a VPN server in the location of your choice. For example, if you want to watch US Netflix, you’d select a US server. You’ll now have a different IP address which makes it appear you’re in that location.
Bear in mind that not all VPNs can unblock geo-restricted sites. Many sites, including streaming, gaming, and gambling services, have methods to detect when you are using a proxy (VPNs are included in this). Notably, many free VPNs are unable to bypass such proxy detectors.
