The Trusted Reporters program leverages Agents’ organic understanding of Ingress to help improve the player experience with regards to inappropriate gameplay. They are players nominated by other players for their keen understanding of the gameplay and local knowledge and who are trusted to escalate critical issues that impact gameplay on the ground to Niantic. To protect the privacy of the players in this group, their codenames will not be shared publicly.
Can a Trusted Reporter ban a player?
No, a Trusted Reporter can only share local intel with NIA OPS. They cannot guarantee that action will be taken against an account or that a Portal reset will occur based on the action. Trusted Reporters do not adjudicate actions, determine or make recommendations to NIA OPS about what actions should be taken on an account and cannot access any tickets.
