The Sign in with Apple login method allows players on iOS devices to log into Ingress using their Apple ID. You may use the Sign in with Apple login method in addition to Google and Facebook by linking the login method to your existing account.
If you already have an Apple ID, you can use it to create an Ingress account. Tap the Sign in with Apple button while you’re creating your account to connect your new account to your Apple ID. Once you finish this process you can sign in quickly and securely with Face ID, Touch ID, or your device passcode.
If you already have an Ingress account, you can link your Apple ID to your account through the game’s Settings menu. Once the Apple ID is associated with your account, you can use it the next time you log in. Learn more about account linking.
Do not select the Sign in with Apple option before linking the login method with your account. Doing so may result in errors or inadvertently creating new accounts.
Note: Linking or unlinking an account to your account in one game will also apply to other Niantic games.
Hide My Email for Sign in with Apple
If you’re using Sign in with Apple, you may notice that the email address linked on your Settings page may not match the email address attached to your Apple ID. This could be because you’ve enabled Hide My Email—Apple's private email relay service—to create and share a unique, random email address that forwards to your personal email.
This feature allows you to receive messages from the app without sharing your personal email address. Learn more about Hide My Email at the Apple Support Center.
