Xiaomi Brand users are being banned from Pokémon GO

Being banned from Pokémon GO – or games in general – is not exactly new. What has always happened is that usually those who are banned from the game violated the terms of service or community rules.

The big problem is that a group of Niantic title players is being banned for having a Xiaomi smartphone. An official Reddit post to the game (r / TheSilphRoad) reveals that Niantic is banning players by mistake.

These players claim to have done nothing wrong. What seems to be happening is that the measures against cheating in Pokémon GO are misidentifying an app or system process that is unique to these devices.

Redmi Note 5 is one of the affected devices.

It appears that this ban only affects owners of certain devices, such as Redmi Note 5. As you can see in the image below, the ban lasts 30 days, and users are charged with violating the Terms of Service.

MIUI 10 Appbooster May Be the Cause of the Problem

While not sure, users suspect the issue is caused by the MIUI 10 Appbooster. This is an application designed to enhance the gaming experience on these smartphones, and it seems that Niantic can't distinguish it from something that is actually used. for cheating purposes.

At the time of writing this article, Niantic has not yet commented on this matter. Interestingly, I regularly play Pokémon GO on a Redmi Note 5. No problem so far, but I have Appbooster disabled.
