As the rush for Pokémon Go calms down, Niantic is working towards getting rid of cheaters. Botters, GPS spoofers, and scanners are being aimed. Rooted Android devices have been caught in the crossfire.

Niantic has broken its silence and confirms that they are behind the lockdown for third party services trying to access their servers last month.
