    It's a development option if you were to be working on an app that accessed your phone's location; mock locatuons would allow you to communicate false locations to your phone.  Unless you are directly involved with app/Rom development, it won't make any difference whether it's on or off.

    Thanks for the help I appreciate it. Perhaps you might know the answer to 1 other question. In developer options what is the function of background process limit??? And what would be the benefit of changing this option??? I've changed it before while    running quadrant standard and with the setting at no background process it's scored higher than the rest of the settings.
