As the name implies, the movement issues three warnings accompanied by a suspension for anyone who violates the rules of the game. If the misbehavior continues after "postpone", the bill will be eradicated.
In addition to extending the sentence, Niantic Labs also revealed that they had increased the sentence. smartphones rooted or freed, a solution generally used to run versions or tricks of modified applications, such as changing the GPS location.
According to the developer, the game will stop working on a modified device. This means that even users who have rooted or released without cheating should lose access to the Niantic Labs game from now on.
