    I am keep gotten the warning message of "We have detected activity on your account that suggests you or someone accessing your account are using modified client software or unauthorized third party software which accesses Pokémon GO in violation of our Terms of Service. Please be aware that the use of such software can result in the loss of your account. If you have been using such software, we strongly encourage you to stop." when every start up, so annoying, this account has been created after I got banned in thread (https://www.thebuddyforum.com/pokef...unt-banned-2-3-2017-thats-account-remark.html) and I only use this account for 2 days before the PF down time, this may prove my suspect of PF is detectable by some reason as I stated in my thread.

    I used to play with Google, and know I am playing with PTC account,

    The questions are
    1. what am I going to do now even the PF is back online? shall I carry on?
    2. As my account has flagged, even I don't use PF anymore, shall I carry on? even I play in legal, I may get ban once again if Niantic go fever.
    3. hate to seeing the warning message every time, how long will it last?

    The message is not for botting. IV calculator, tracker or other thing.

    To farther verify, I asked a friend for a google email to create an new account just now, so far never see such warning msg after restarted the app for few times.

    As per described, my 2nd account is just online a few days ago and only use between legal app & PF with a few hours break between the switching, I don't even have time to touch those so call IV, tracker or other stuffs as I am so upset to lose my 1st account.....

    If you don't want to lose the account, use it legal!

    I have 9 accounts. 2 are 100% legal (as curiosity, one receive that warning and I never use a bot, tracker, IV calculator, spoofing with that account) and the other 7 are 100% bot/fakegps (as curiosity NONE of my "ilegal" accounts receive the warning) :rolleyes:

    What I can concluded is there a people broadcast in live to show them how to hit the softban by playing legal to insulting Niantic. That's why there is a window for appeal.

    Also Niantic never wipe out all the illegal player in one wave. I only gotten hit when I was level up to L39 & 50% more to reach L40

    I got the same msg, about 2 hours after the last PF update. I'd been experimenting with Opera vpn so dunno if that had affected anything

    I had the same message today. I think they fucked something up with PF.. So many people are having this rn and they keep saying that niantic cant detect PF.

    5 botting accounts. 2 banned. 3 of them are still going strong and no message popped up yet.

    My banned accounts were used with other bots, sniping, etc. Definitely not just PF, so cant blame PF.

    The 3 that are still alive are lvl 25,26,26. Used with PF, Nexus6 and Nexus 9 tablet. I switch between the 3 often. I also use Snorlax Reloaded Module and GPS Joystick(in system mode). I have not seen a msg as of yet.

    100% confirmed you get these for using PF. I've never used anything except my phone and PF and got this message today. I do the same as most...slow speeds, human looking behavior etc.

    I don't blame Niantic, but PF Ned's to come out and admit that the bot gets caught now. There is zero doubt, and it sucks for them to keep collecting money without stating all of this openly.

    Am I the only one that read this? It's been acknowledged.


    Code:
    Dear @everyone,
    
    Pokefarmer and Lazymon are in the process of being updated to a new version. 
    
    I have to admit that we stepped into a trap with Build 170. (GG Niantic!) 
    
    We updated in the middle of an ongoing "ban-wave" and server issues from Niantic and this caused a lot of false positives and assumptions of what is going on however a few moments later we published an updated Build .171 which with a bit of time seems to have fixed the issue.
    
    Pokefarmer is stable and runs smoothly which is fine. It's verified that our API implementation is working well and implements it correctly.
    
    All other developers we know are already informed to fix their code to avoid the trap that we've stepped into. That trap I am talking about is what caused massive captchas.
    
    A side note for developers: Niantic still has the old API opened and I highly recommend to not use it as it'll flag your account to get banned.
    
    So, what did change in this update for Pokefarmer and Lazymon?
    Besides a single label that shows the current supported API there are no new features
    or fixes in Pokefarmer or Lazymon. All changes are under the hood to guarantee stability and the latest API features.
    
    It's time to document our findings and to pick up our usual work. Lazymon and Pokefarmer updates continue on Sunday/Monday.
    
    Thank you for being patient and helping each other.
    
    P.S.: We're extending all Pokefarmer, Lazymon and Hashing Keys to add another day as we were ready 23 hours after that forced version change.
    
    Love,
    Eggy 
    
    P.P.S We truly are sorry for any users that may have been caught in the Niantic trap, we thank you for continuing to have faith and trust in us.

    I don't use anything else except PF too, and use PF very infrequently and only started a month ago, mostly legal except for occasional rare ones on Twitter feed or Silph Atlas and they gave me that dumb message and the last time I botted was about a week ago. I always used manual and usually only 30mins or less in my city only trying to catch a few rare pokes. Me and son Lvl 34 playing same account since last Sep. I hope they dont ban us, you folks be careful but I staying away dont want to lose the account.

    Got it on both my lvl 22 and lvl 12 account. Slowest speed. No immediate transfer. Only using PF.

    Oddly enough, once I restart the app, the pop up came back. I dont think it's safe to use PF if the bot doesnt automatically close the window. It'll be even more obvious if we're still able to bot with a pop up window up.

    ~~

    Since it looks like most of us are getting the message regardless of bot behaviour, it's a concern that PF itself is detectable. Yes, it's using the latest api. So? Api is probably one of the many checks.

    I suspected it to be an elevation thing, but from my understanding, NinjaBot doesnt provide that either. My next suspicion could be a walking speed. Realistically, humans dont walk consistently at 3.8kph all the time. I've asked about it in this thread (which no one gave me an answer of how PF functions in that aspect).

    Else, it could be some device code that Niatic is picking up as my phone spoofer friends havent gotten the message. And they use the IV checkers too.


    ~~~

    Seriously dude. Please fact check instead of blindly grabbing at whatever's convenient.
    Check the dates of the source of your quote and build/version number.

    For PTC Accounts I could have an idea. Maybe Device ID gets now relevant and you are automatically flagged if you are using more then one device (yeahm also legitemately).
    But like in my case google accounts are easy to detect, because the google accout itself states you that you are logging in from another device. Therefore Niantic is a subcompany of google it would not surprise me that they are forwarding such activity.

    I still have my 9 accounts working but all accounts which I botted in the last 2 months got the warning message (7 accounts). Some accounts are 100% PF, I didn't use any other cheat, sadly I have to say that bot is over.

    My guess is they got a way to know when you use your Google & PTC account in other app/program different of Pokemon Go app. So all programs who ask for log in are over.

    Ignore these messages, the last time we got these messages we had months of hassle free botting time.

    The only time you need to worry is if youve been banned.

    So, you think this are random messages without a reason?
    I cant agree.

    In addition to what I posted...

    I'm pretty convinced that they're detecting PF somehow. Then ban depending on how aggressive the botting is.
    My brother's account also got the message and he used my PF key once. And it was to catch a Snorlax (after not logging in for a few hours), everything around it, then logging off. That was back in late January.

    My problem is if we bot now. We're definitely gonna get flagged unless PF auto dismisses popups.
    That message shows up every time I log in on my phone.

    Does PF dismiss that message?

    No I'm not saying their random. I am saying they will disappear in a few weeks. Remember we had these messages before just after they did the first ever Api change.


    PGbot has a speed variant and they are getting the message too.
