Ingress Community Directory

Hey folks,

Today has been a slow day for the cryptography guru's who decode the Niantic Project puzzles. At this point, they still have not uncovered any new passcodes today. If you haven't reviewed some of the passcodes added to the database recently, you should as we have added discovery information for some of them, e.g. 2wc2dalbyr2w2q.

Thursday Ingress Activation Code Contest

Greetings Agents,

Today, an operative uploaded the photo below from an NIA facility. It appears the NIA is planning a control field of some kind. We need your help in identifying the cities in the image. Also, we need to know what we are up against, so along with your response of the three cities, let us know the minimum portal level they will need to make the control field.

Passcodes, Multilingual Content, Upcoming Contests and Other Changes to the Site

Greetings Agents,

So I have a few things to update you all on. The first, is I recognize that passcodes have become frustrating as by the time many of you get to them they are expired. So we have added a new expired field to the passcode database to decrease frustrations for you all. Also, we have enabled comments on passcodes, so if a passcode is listed as not expired, but it fails for you, then you can post a comment on the passcode and we can get it updated. Podcast

The podcast show,, has posted the episode that I was a guest in on their website. In this episode, I discuss Ingress and Ingress Field Guide with the host & co-hosts. View Episode 47 now.
