Welcome to the world of Ingress Prime, Agent. The fate of this universe, and perhaps others, depends on you. The discovery of Exotic Matter (XM), a resource of unknown origin, has sparked a covert struggle between two Factions. Cutting-edge XM technologies have completely transformed the Ingress Scanner, and it is now waiting for you to join this battle.

Explore the world around you and interact with places of cultural significance—such as public art installations, landmarks, and monuments—to collect valuable resources using your Ingress Scanner.

Fight for the Faction you believe in. Harness the power of XM to evolve mankind and discover our true destiny with The Enlightened, or protect humanity from a hostile takeover of the mind with The Resistance.

Dominate territories by linking Portals and creating Control Fields to achieve victory for your Faction.

Strategize and communicate with fellow Agents in your neighborhood and around the world.

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 Ingress.

Every tap now causes vibration

With this most recent update, every tap now causes device vibrations. It is not only very irritating and an additional, unnecessary battery drain, it’s also very confusing and disorienting because prior to this update there were only vibrations to alert the user that something was happening, like being attacked by an enemy portal. Please change it back or create an option to turn off the superfluous vibrations.

Also, there needs to be a way to earn CMU by playing the game (without the need to purchase it) or another way to obtain frackers and beacons.

Gl’acking impossible

tl;dr Just pressed REDO four times to complete the glyph “ALL” because the app would draw the line between two non-consecutive dots I was glyphing. Just...forget Translator badge exists. On the other hand, Niantic is experimenting with Ingress monetization. Maybe if players can’t glyph hack farm the items they need for anomalies, they’ll just buy them in the store.


When I saw a comment on reddit that “Traces in Wizards Unite are similar to Ingress, except Ingress [glyphing] is not accurate,” I thought that person was lying. In the four and a half years I’ve been playing Ingress, I’ve never had an accuracy issue with glyph hacking.

When a new player hit 16, recursed, and then, hit level 8 in a day told me she was terrible at glyph hacking, I was surprised.

I just started using Prime fully after Redacted was retired (R.I.P.) and now I get it. The glyph accuracy on Prime is HORRIBLE! On longer glyph sequences where I used to consistently get 80% + speed bonuses, I now get 0% due to the inaccuracy.

Glyphs that I never had a problem with before would be off by a dot. I was the line trace that forms when you swipe and sometimes it’s 5 millimeters off from the tip of my finger. Seriously, Niantic, please fix this.

hard to see and glitchy

this scanner is difficult to see when playing in the day with three sun out. I've adjusted the contrast. I'm also getting loads of delayed audio from hacks. the audio will play minutes after the hack. the map hacking is great, when it works. I find that it's faster to just click the portal and hack it rather than do the map hacking. the comms channel is poorly sized and the most recent chat post is always under the user interface and unreadable.

there is also the problem that I seem to get a headache if I play for more than 15 minutes at a time. the old scanner didn't do this. I believe that the special effects are the cause. I had switched to the old scanner before it was decommissioned and I didn't have the headaches.
