How to solve geofence mock_location error?

so im running this sample app i got on github which deals with google maps and geo fences: https://github.com/androidfu/GeofenceExample

And when I run the code I get this error :

Caused by: java.lang.SecurityException: com.androidfu.example.geofences from uid 10170 not allowed to perform MOCK_LOCATION


Here is the code for the class followed by the stack trace. Hope you guys can give me some insight. Also i have mock location in manifest. The error is coming from the onResume() method.

Answer

I guess you have not allowed mock locations from phones developer options. It should be under Debug section.
