Many Xiaomi phone users are outraged over mysterious bans that have restricted them from playing Pokemon Go. The affected users have largely reported on various social media channels that they're facing account suspensions as well as permanent closures of their accounts on the Pokemon Go game for no valid reason. Developer and publisher Niantic is currently investigating the reports it received from the users. However, Xiaomi is yet to make any formal announcement on the issue. It appears that there are some conflicts between Xiaomi's latest MIUI build and anti-cheating measures of the game that are resulting in the bans.

Users running MIUI 10.3.1.0 and MIUI 10.3.2.0 Global Stable ROM on the Redmi 5, Redmi Note 5, Redmi Note 5 Pro, Redmi 5 Plus, Redmi 6, and Redmi Note 7 are majorly reporting that they've been banned from Pokemon Go.

"It's very sad that players have to lose their Pokemon Go accounts because of errors in the system. I'm so disappointed," one of the affected users posted on Reddit.
