How do you prevent the user from spoofing their location?

VALIDITY requires the homeowner to take multiple photos of the exterior of the home, including the property address and street photos to the left and right of the property. Additionally, photo location and dates are verified to make sure that they were taken from the subject location and after the homeowner was requested to do the inspection. All of the photo metadata is available to the appraiser, and they review photos versus available satellite/birds eye view images during the review process to confirm it's the same property. Nonetheless, tools that can manipulate GPS location are available to the most determined fraudulent actor.
