Thank you for your support as we continue to address issues related to the recent data scraping incident. We want to provide you an update on the situation and our response to date.

We have taken initial action against a first set of systems and tools designed to negatively impact the player community through extracting, scraping, or indexing Ingress data in violation of our Terms of Service. In addition, we have terminated certain accounts that we found related to these activities. We will continue enforcing our TOS as we learn about other similar systems.

We take the safety of our players and fair play very seriously; cheating is not permitted and we want to continue working with the community to foster an atmosphere of fun and adventure.
