Niantic is on a hunt, “everyone is a target”, still short on security measures

Red warnings have appeared to many Pokemon GO players over the past two days. As you would’ve usually done before, you would ignore the advice and continue playing. Well, that’s not an option nowadays, since Niantic is up to something serious.

From what we know so far, Niantic current security measures want to hunt and deny mapping, hashing, and jailbroken devices. Therefore, it is more than likely they have applied the same detection to spoofing and various of third-party apps.

Niantic’s ASM system and access calls can easily detect anything suspicious on your device, and sadly, no one has ever found to perform a successful bypass regarding the same. Therefore, it is vital for your account to avoid playing throughout red zones periodically.

However, Spoofers from all around the world are trying to break Niantic’s ASM and access calls, and they’re are thoroughly working on it. It looks like, Niantic is still short with their security measures. They have sent the same red warning to many legit players, which reliefs spoofers and embrace them to work with full power.

This is no April Fools’ joke.
