What’s New

Version 1.133.4

NOTE: Only Agents who made accounts using the original 1.0 Scanner can access Scanner [REDACTED]


Scanner [REDACTED] transforms the real world into the landscape for a global game of mystery, intrigue, and competition.

Our future is at stake. You must choose a side.

A mysterious energy has been unearthed by a team of scientists in Europe. The origin and purpose of this force is unknown, but some researchers believe it is influencing the way we think. We must control it or it will control us.

“The Enlightened” seek to embrace the power that this energy may bestow upon us. “The Resistance” struggle to defend, and protect what’s left of our humanity.

Install Scanner [REDACTED] and transform your world.

The World is the Game
Move through the real world using your smartphone device and the Scanner [REDACTED] app to discover and tap sources of this mysterious energy. Acquire objects to aid in your quest, deploy tech to capture territory, and ally with other players to advance the cause of the Enlightened or the Resistance.

The struggle is being played out globally. Track the progress of players around the world, plan your next steps, and communicate with others using an Intelligence map.

What is the Niantic Project?
Is this just a game? An Investigation filled with cryptic clues and secret codes awaits. The story evolves everyday. Powerful secrets and game tech are there to be unlocked.

Form Alliances
The struggle to save the planet spans the entire world. Groups of people acting together can be more effective than individuals acting alone. Cooperation across neighborhoods, cities, and countries will be needed to achieve the ultimate victory.

Note: Scanner [REDACTED] uses the Contacts app permission to make it easier to invite your friends to join you in your mission to save the world. The app will not contact anyone without your explicit action to recruit a particular friend.

Agents must be over 13 years old (for residents outside of the European Economic Area); or over 16 years old or such age needed to consent to the processing of personal data in the Agent's country of residence (for residents of the European Economic Area). Unfortunately, no children may play Scanner [REDACTED].

Blast from the past

Best interface for ingress, views are clean and easy to see when traveling though high portal density areas. Easy to switch between deploying and hacking or between attacking and deploying.

I wish that it were easier to delete keys but the recycle, cancel, recycle move speeds things up.

So glad the brought this back. It was like pulling teeth to okay ingress Prime for a week or so until this came out. As long as redacted exists I’ll be an ingress player!

Much better than Prime

This has continued to be more functional and usable than the abomination destined to replace it. Unfortunately, only agents who signed up before Prime became Niantic’s flagship scanner can use this version.

Much less distracting than Prime and has features that Prime is still lacking after all this time. This is made for adults who care about strategy and game play rather than flashy glitz

The Most Anticipated App EVER by Niantic

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve checked the App Store waiting for this moment! Scanner [REDACTED] makes other apps offering to harness exotic matter seem completely unplayable. A miracle would need to happen for me to considering using any other app for this purpose EVER again. Well done Niantic, this new app is light years beyond your previous work.
