So we posted an image on Monday that contained an activation code for Ingress encoded in it with some hints on how to decode it. Based on some feedback we don’t feel that anyone has uncovered the activation code so we’ve made some improvements and made it easier with the hope of making it slightly easier to figure out.
We’ve removed one level of difficulty to the decoding as well as changed the font to Comic Sans so it’s easier to differentiate Ls from Is from 1s.
And to help speed things along here are a few hints:
- As noted by some people this does use Base64 Encoding
- The numbers at the top of the image are important
- This activation code is 8 Alpha Characters (no numeric)
- The final code is protected by a cipher
Also if you have problems pulling the text out of the image and want to cheat then we’re going to put the raw text here:
