Niantic launches Profile web portal for players to manage their Niantic ID

Stay connected with all of Niantic's games!

At Niantic, the spirit of community and making friends are core to the game experience. They first introduced Niantic ID where you can get your unique identity across all Niantic Games and experiences. They launched it in November 2021 with a reservation period allowing players to lock in a username they already own in one of our games. This process ensured that anyone that loved one of their existing usernames would have top priority in claiming that Niantic ID. Today, Niantic has launched the Niantic Profile web portal, where you can create, update, and fully manage this Niantic ID and more! 

As Niantic builds new features, they will continue prioritizing player privacy across the different games and products. In that spirit, they have defaulted very players’ game profile visibility settings to match existing in-game Niantic profile settings wherever possible.

What can you do in the Niantic Profile web portal

Niantic Profile web portal
  • Create and manage your Niantic ID: Claim any Niantic ID you like as long as it hasn’t already been claimed by someone else. All accounts will also be provided a one-time Niantic ID change. If you participated in the November 2021 reservation process, this is also the best way to confirm the Niantic ID you successfully reserved. 
  • Access your Niantic Friends list: See and manage all of your Niantic Friends in one place and easily view their Niantic Profiles.
  • Customize your profile: Manage your photo, display name, game connections, and visibility settings.

The Niantic Profile web portal is the first step to make it easier than ever to manage your identity across Niantic games and the friendships you form through them. Over the coming months, Niantic will be replacing the existing Niantic Profile within the games with the profile that you see in the web portal.

These updates will take some time to fully roll out to all of Niantic’s games, and they will be working quickly to unify these different elements. As a first step, Niantic will be connecting your Wayfarer profile with your Niantic ID in the next few weeks.
