Discover and use passcodes

Please note that Passcode redemption is not available on the iOS Scanner; however, iOS Agents can redeem Passcodes on the Intel Map.

Find passcodes

Use the Investigation Board to follow the story behind Ingress and find answers to questions about the Niantic Project, the NIA, XM, Shapers and each of the factions. You may find passcodes hidden in these postings that can give you items (XMPs, Resonators, etc.), XM and Access Points (AP).
