Recruit other Agents

The NIA occasionally grants Agents invites to recruit new players and advance their faction's cause. We understand it is your calling to encourage your friends and family to join the same faction as you, however, they may select any faction they choose.

  • Touch Recruit Agents
  • Type in the email address you'd like to send an invite to and select Invite, or scroll through the contact list and select Invite next to their name.

Recruiter medal

The Recruiter medal rewards you for inviting and mentoring new Agents. Unlock higher medal tiers by recruiting more Agents. In order for you to receive credit toward the Recruiter medal, please ensure you send your invite to the exact Google or Gmail account that your recruit uses to sign in to Ingress. You will be given credit once your recruit reaches L3.
