Pokemon Go fans praise Niantic over account deletion process

Niantic has been praised by Pokemon Go players thanks to the safety precautions when deleting one’s account.

Niantic is often in the crosshairs of angry Pokemon Go players. Whether it’s removing Remote Raid Passes from weekly boxes or the lack of Shiny Pokemon found during an event, players find plenty of ways to complain.

But every once in a while, Niantic gives players content that’s hard to fault. Most recently, Adventure Week was hailed as one of the biggest in-game events in ages.

Now players are once again praising the game as Niantic took various safety precautions during the account deletion process.

Accidental account deletion is excluded

Thanks to a recent update, players can now initiate the Pokemon Go account deletion process from within the app. Whereas previously players had to submit a player request via the Niantic Help Center.

While the in-game process only has a confirmation screen, Reddit user GabeBit08 pointed out that a second step is required to completely delete one’s account. Email confirmation requires players to reply with a special code.

This ensures that players cannot accidentally delete their account with a few inappropriate taps. And that level of security earned Niantic praise from concerned gamers.

“Anyone with a child who sometimes plays on their account really appreciates this feature,” commented one user. Another said: “That’s reassuring. I really didn’t like the idea of ​​this new feature due to the stress of accidentally deleting an account… Good to know it’s not really possible.”

The account deletion process makes it difficult to accidentally delete your account even though there is only one confirmation screen. You are forced to reply to an email with a special code and once you do so your account will be deleted. by TheSilphRoad

While it might not be the most groundbreaking feature, it could certainly be considered game-saving. And player praise confirms that this level of detail is appreciated in such a simple process.
