The most viral game Pokemon’s developer Niantic is now issuing permanent bans to players who violate TOS. Types of cheaters include GPS Spoofing, bots and other software techniques that allow Pokemon Go to played beyond the realm of Niantic design parameters. GPS spoofing is a trick which let your smartphone think that you located at different country/location instead of your original location. Bots, on the other hand, let you automate a portion of the game.

It is a note posted on Niantic’s website, in which company outlines violations of its TOS that can result in permanent ban

This includes, but is not limited to: falsifying your location, using emulators, modified or unofficial software and/or accessing Pokémon Go clients or backends in an unauthorized manner including through the use of third party software

The company includes a link to appeal the ban if it was a mistake.


It is still unclear how Niantic will detect the use of GPS spoofing, emulators, bots and other Pokemon Go hacks.
