Ingress faction change: How much warning is given to save items


I've submitted for a faction change in Ingress, and there doesn't seem to be good information on this elsewhere. Does the process give you enough warning to drop capsules of items to be picked up afterward, or does it force the faction change on you immediately when you open the app after the change has gone through?

Best Answer

The change will happen immediately when Niantic approves your change request. Once you put in the request, assume that it could happen at any time.
