Your Profile is how you represent yourself on Niantic Social, and shows your display name, your Niantic ID, and any in-game usernames you have linked to the account. The profile is also where you can add someone as a friend, send a direct message (or message request), and take additional account actions such as blocking and reporting. Profiles are accessible within Communities, text channels, and direct / group messages.

Profile Customization
  • Go to your profile (right-most tab on the bottom navigation bar), then click on the Settings icon on the top right.
  • In the Settings menu, click on “Edit Profile”. This menu is also where you can review your blocked user list and message requests.
  • In the Edit Profile view, you can change your profile icon, Niantic Social display name, and the visibility settings for any games you have connected.
  • Tap on any of your game profiles to adjust the visibility setting and specify who is able to see this information on your profile.
