In order to ensure the maximum level of security over your child’s personal information, Niantic complies with both the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) in the US and GDPR-K: the provisions to protect children’s privacy in the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

COPPA and GDPR-K require obtaining verifiable consent from a child’s parent prior to gathering any personal information from the child.

We comply with this requirement through the Niantic Kids Parent Portal with a verification and consent process handled by SuperAwesome. In order to do so, SuperAwesome requires certain personal information about you to prove you are really you and to block anyone trying to impersonate you. Any such information is collected by SuperAwesome in accordance with their own Privacy Policy. You may contact SuperAwesome directly at or +44 203 668 6677 for any questions related to their handling of user information, especially parent information.

Once verified, you can grant permission for games to access information about your child.
If you do not provide consent within a reasonable time of receiving the initial permission request email, then the record of your online contact information will be deleted.
