Niantic Labs has banned over 5 million cheaters since early 2020

Cheating on online games is a real scourge and this trend is accentuated as developers orient towards the free-to-play model: the ban no longer entails the need to buy a license for the game but only the loss of its progress.

Niantic Labs has had a lot to do with cheating on Pokémon Go, Ingress as well as Harry Potter: Wizards Unite … and things are picking up speed.

Niantic Labs announces that it has banned more than 5 million cheaters since the start of 2020 with more than a million permanent bans. A technique that seems to work since, according to the publisher, 90% of players who received a first warning stopped cheating afterwards (or found undetectable tools to continue their misdeeds).

However, the publisher announces that it is investing heavily in the development of new anti-cheating technologies. However, the most effective technique is based on denunciation between players.
