These measures will be deployed not only in Pokemon Go but also in other Niantic mobile games.
The blog post about Niantic’s reaffirmed plans to enforce its gaming policies has been shared on the developer’s site and is the first of such players since the start of 2021. This was intended to show a “broad overview of the actions” taken. against cheaters. in Niantic games. Niantic said it has since gotten better at observing the behaviors of cheaters and can now act faster against those cheaters. This last blog is therefore committed to applying anti-cheating measures more rigorously.
“As a result, we will be strengthening the enforcement of these behaviors in our games and rolling out our enhanced anti-cheat approach,” Niantic said. “We are now starting to take action against a number of accounts that we believe violate our Terms of Service or Player Guidelines during recent in-game events in Pokémon GO.”
A new application of our Player Guidelines and Terms of Service applies to all Niantic games. Learn more in this note https://t.co/f7SyiJUvci
