Get Accurate Location using a Fake Website
Concept behind Seeker is simple, just like we host phishing pages to get credentials why not host a fake page that requests your loction just like many popular location based websites.
Seeker Hosts a fake website on In Built PHP Server and uses Ngrok, website asks for Location Permission and if the user allows it, we can get :
- Altitude - Not always available
- Direction - Only available if user is moving
- Speed - Only available if user is moving
Along with Location Information we also get Device Information without any permissions :
- Operating System
- Number of CPU Cores
- Amount of RAM - Approximate Results
- Screen Resolution
- GPU information
- Browser Name and Version
- Public IP Address
This tool is a Proof of Concept and is for Educational Purposes Only, Seeker shows what data a malicious website can gather about you and your devices and why you should not click on random links and allow critical permissions such as Location etc.
Other tools and services offer IP Geolocation which is not very accurate and does not give location of user.
Generally if a user accepts location permsission, Accuracy of the information recieved is accurate to approximately 30 meters.
Note : On iPhone due to some reason location accuracy is approximately 65 meters.

If you are unable to get ngrok url that means ngrok is unable to resolve dns, switch to Mobile Data instead of WiFi and it should work, this is a problem with ngrok.
