Game Booster by Samsung - danger ⚠️???
Just noticed last night I guess my phone (Samsung Galaxy S10, 5G) updated lots of Apps and Services.
One was "Game Booster".
I was not sure: Should I give it a try and open Prime or not?
Seems to be a service used by Game Launcher - that provides the possibility to take Screenshots, record videos (including sound - without root).
Well then, I tried - nothing happened.
Am I lucky? Is Niantic aware that people fear to loose their account because phone manufacturer integrate/update their features?
@Chicken3gg game booster is just a Samsung app that helps improve your gameplay experience. It has settings for optimizing battery life vs performance, blocking notifications, locking the status bar to avoid accidental taps, a set in screenshot/record button, etc.
It's not an issue with ToS or accidental false-positive bans that I've heard of. I've had it for Ingress/PoGo for a very long time.
Similiar software in I beleive Huawei and Xiaomi land triggered bans in the past. (albeit unintentionally)
I would steer clear of anything that does anything to any game.
@Kevinsky86 I'm unfamiliar with other game apps, but I've been using it since 2017 with 0 issues from Niantic. It doesn't modify the games, it just modifies your phone's performance and menu bars.
I plat with this in my Samsung note 9 and it's ok for me.
You can't cheat with this, just capture your screen.
I also have no problems with this app on my note9.
Not sure what problem your having @Chicken3gg with the game booster. I have had it on my phone forever. I have a Samsung s8. No problems on this end.
No problem here on S10+ works good and safe with Ingress Prime
I have no problems with you using that.
