Pokémon Go Update: Cheaters Get Threatened Bans As Niantic Adds Third-Party Scan Blocks


Niantic's developer warns players who are using third-party scanning apps and cheats to catch Pokémon about the possibility of bans. Developers and trainers alike are aware of the situation.

Signs of new security measures first arrived on Wednesday when the FastPokeMap Twitter account posted that “new security by Pokémon Go servers has been rolled out.”


Pokémon Go player posted on Reddit about the security message warning when opening the app. “We have detected signals from your account that suggest you are using third-party applications or modified software typically associated with cheating,” it reads, “Please be aware that the use of such software can result in the permanent banning of your account and loss of all progress in the game at any time.” In closing, it’s advised that “if you have been using such software, we encourage you to stop.”

However it's still a big question if this security message is referencing GPS bots or Pokémon trackers.

It is Niantic’s responsibility to defend the integrity of the game. When people are handed Pokemon with no effort, especially in large crowds, everyone follows. You really think people will stop using the easy, convenient third-party services for a tracking system requiring more effort and less certainty in finding rares?

Apparently people are forgetting the simple idea that hunting Pokemon is suppose to be challenging.
