PUBG Mobile in its ongoing efforts to curb cheating within the game, on Saturday announced a 10-year ban on players who are found in violation of the developer’s gaming standards.

The use of unauthorised third-party apps or hacks that provide an unfair advantage to a player will be condemned with the ban, the company said in a statement.

Players also have the option to report other gamers who are suspected of cheating, using the in-game reporting system that notifies the responsible team, who will ensure that stringent action is taken. This includes publishing the IDs of confirmed cheaters.
