If you’re a Pokémon Go player, Niantic is making it easier for you to log-in and what appears to be an attempt to prevent you from giving up on the game completely. Users are now able to link their Pokémon Go accounts with your Facebook account. Now you won’t have to try and remember a password you created on the fly when you signed up.
By linking your accounts, you can also access the game and progress across multiple devices, making it easier to progress on your iPad if your iPhone’s battery died. You will also be able to continue accessing your game even if you signed up using a university or work email address that you might lose access to or no longer have access to.
Should you log into the game using a Pokémon Trainer Club account, you will be able to link your Trainer profile with Facebook and Google. If you’re not a big social media user or used your work or school email address previously, you can choose to log in with one of your Gmail accounts instead. Head on over to the Settings menu in the game and choose the platform you would like to use.
