When you have been recruited into the mission, you will be issued access to Ingress, an extremely powerful and supposed to be top secret system designed to support you as an operative. The Ingress Scanner is available for download from the Google Play store.

Once installed, power it up. You will need to authenticate with central control and then you will immediately begin the training campaign.

To complement the Ingress mobile application, there is the Ingress Intel Map. It allows you to view portals anywhere in the world. You can use it to hunt for uncaptured or enemy portals or to check up on your own. In the lower right hand corner you can enter any new Ingress Passcodes that you may receive. We will discuss more about Passcodes later in the guide.
