WTF! Whole Country Faces Pokemon GO BAN because of One User


As said earlier, Niantic Labs is banning people who are using Bots, Joystick, GPS Spoofing and Other Hacking Tricks. The Main Focus of Niantic is to ban Trainers who are using Bots to conquer the Game.



Well a Redditor on /r/pokemongodev decided to test a theory on IP bans with surprising results. The redditor used several SIM Cards to launch several thousand simultaneous scans of the Pokemon Go servers, similar to what services such as PokeVision did in order to display Pokemon locations. All of the scans were tied to a specific national IP address, used by the cell phone company Proximus [Belgium's largest cell phone service provider].



After Running This Test, Niantic eventually flagged the IP and banned every single user who had a Proximus's cell coverage, as banning Proximus's national IP address meant that all Proximus users could no longer use their mobile data to access the game. It's likely whoever flagged the IP address was unaware that it wasn't a private/personal IP address.

Though the redditor is claiming that he didn't ran the test and Niantic Banned everyone just by watching out his Reddit Post and We are like WTF?
