Adventure Sync is an optional mode that records your kilometers walked even while the Harry Potter: Wizards Unite app isn’t open. Using Apple Health or Google Fit, Adventure Sync allows you to stay active and unlock Portmanteaus without significantly impacting your device’s battery life.
Activating Adventure Sync
To use Adventure Sync, you’ll have to allow Harry Potter: Wizards Unite to access your location even when you’re not using the app and connect the app with either the Apple Health app or with the Google Fit app.
Tap the Suitcase menu from the Map
Tap the Settings button in the top left corner of the screen
Scroll down and tap to enable the Adventure Sync setting. You'll be prompted to grant location permissions for Harry Potter: Wizards Unite. You will also be prompted to allow Harry Potter: Wizards Unite to access to your distance data for either Apple Health or Google Fit.
Note: In order for this feature to track location in the background, you must opt to share your location with the Harry Potter: Wizards Unite app at all times (even when the app is closed).
If you play multiple Niantic titles with Adventure Sync enabled:
As long as your accounts share a login method, your distance traveled will match across the games. Even if you play on multiple devices, your distance will not get double-counted or overwritten.
If there’s a discrepancy between the Adventure Sync distance reported from different games, you’ll get credit for the highest distance. For instance, if you have both Pokémon GO and Harry Potter: Wizards Unite installed and Pokémon GO tracks a higher distance than Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, Harry Potter: Wizards Unite will credit you with your distance from Pokémon GO.
