This morning I received the following email:

As one can imagine, as Ingress player I have zero interest in pokemon or Harry Potter.

So I swiftly clicked the unsubscribe link, which resulted in the following image:

Uhh, what?

I wanted to unsub from irrelevant spam, not Ingress emails.

Please fix this and either add an option to opt in to "other niantic products" or stop sending poke/wu spam to Ingress list.



  • So it's been a week what's the usual round trip time for official Niantic support request? This surely can't be an echo chamber where noise just bounces off the walls?

    It is highly likely that NIA will continue to spam you about big events in their other games as you are subbed for Ingress promo emails.

    Just wait till Prime start spaming these in your notification tray too (I was joking, but actually I think Prime might have already did this months ago, back before I blocked all notifications from it in Android, then later just uninstalled Prime. NIA was abusing app notifications for promotional spam far too much).
