-Portals allow for a player to acquire items that are key to playing the game. To get an item from a portal ​you have to be within range to hack it. When you hack a portal you can receive ​resonators, Xmp Bursters, ​shieldsmedia, and portal keys. The higher the level of portal the higher the level of item you can acquire. Hacking portals under control of your side normally provides better items. Hacking the other sides portal ​will get you 100 AP but be aware that you will lose XMs when doing this.+Portals allow for a player to acquire items that are key to playing the game. To hack a portal, it must be within ​your interaction ​range (the blue circle around your location pointer), and you must have enough XM. When you hack a portalyou can receive ​items such as Resonators, Xmp Bursters, ​ShieldsMedia, Power Cubes, and Portal Keys. The higher the portal's level, ​the higher the level of items that can be acquired (although usually you will not receive items any higher than one more that your level). Depending on who controls the portal, what/how much you receive will vary. Hacking portals under control of your side normally provides better/more items. Hacking the other side's portals ​will get you APbut you may come under attack from doing so.
  
-Portals are key to creating control fields that contribute to your sides overall ​MUs. To establish a control field you must create ​a link between 3 portals to form a triangle. To create a link between two portals you must have both of them fully deployed ​with resonators. As well the portals must be within a specific distance of one another. The distance that they are allowed to be apart is determined by the level of the resonators deployed to the "​origin"​ portal. The "​origin"​ portal is the portal ​that you are using to establish the link to another remote portalEasiest ​way to see the distance allowed for a portal is to go into the "​upgrade"​ screen and look at its range value in the top right corner.+Portals are key to creating control fields that contribute to your side'​s ​overall ​MU's (Mind Units, or how global control is measured). To establish a control fieldyou must create ​links between 3 portals to form a triangle. To create a link between two portals you must have both of them fully loaded ​with resonators, as well as being within a specific distance of one another. The maximum ​distance that they can be apart is determined by the level of the "​origin"​ portalthe one that you are linking fromThe easiest ​way to see the distance allowed for a portal is to go into the "​upgrade"​ screen and look at its range value in the top right corner.
  
-portals ​level is determined by the average level of all resonators deployed to it. The level is a round half down so if you have 4 L2 and 4 L3 your portal will only be L2. You can see the level of the portal when you bring up the detail screen for the portal. The table below shows the range of each portal level.+portal'​s ​level is determined by the average level of all resonators deployed to it, rounded ​down.
