New Portal submissions

Help us fill out the play field by locating, photographing and submitting candidate Portals directly from your Scanner. Decisions on whether or not a Portal will be accepted will occur within 3-4 weeks. Expect a Portal to go live 3-4 weeks after it is accepted.

Candidate Portal criteria

From your Scanner:

  • Launch Ingress and long-press on your Scanner where you’d like to see your candidate Portal appear. Drag right to select NEW PORTAL, which will bring up your device’s camera.
  • Take and confirm your photo of the candidate Portal to bring up the final submission screen.
  • Under CONFIRM LOCATION, ensure your candidate Portal is placed correctly. If the location is not correct, or if you see the message Location required, touch the map and drag to position the marker exactly where your candidate Portal should be.
Accurate placement of candidate Portals on this submission screen speeds up processing time and ensures accurate Portal locations.
