New Feature to Change Your Username!

Hey, everyone! A much requested, and long awaited, feature has just been added to Munzee. We’re so excited to tell you about it!

We know for a long time, some players have requested the ability to be able to change their username. We’ve finally been able to setup a way to make this possible and make sure it correctly updates all your Munzees, account data, etc.
All Munzees you have previously deployed will be converted. All Munzees in your undeployed list will be converted. You lose NOTHING!

This feature will cost 1000 Zeds per use.

How do you do this, you may ask? Visit the Munzee website and the feature to Change Username will be under Settings.


Then, simply scroll down to Change Username, and voila!

Some important things to note:

  • After changing usernames you will need to logout and log back in on the website AND the mobile app across all devices

  • Usernames are case sensitive, so be extra careful when typing new usernames
  • After you change your username, you may change your username to one of your own previously set usernames if you have name change regret
  • There are no limits on how many times you can change your username
  • Only a-z, A-Z, or 0-9 are allowed as characters in a username (no spaces or special characters)
  • No refund on name changes – the details are tracked in your credits history

We hope you’re as pumped as we are about this new change and that you’re granted the username of your dreams!

Munzee On!

Explosive News!

Y’all, this is HUGE! We are SO excited to announce an update that is going to CHANGE the way that you BLAST Munzees! Check out the live announcement video from Rob on our Facebook page here:

The masterminds over here on Team Munzee have been brainstorming ways that we can improve the performance of Blast Captures and we’re excited to announce….we’ve finally done it! Players can now set off Blasts without having to wait until the previous one finishes! That means more Blasts in less time! No more ignoring your friends while you watch the screen, waiting to blast again at events!

This will also make Boosters much more efficient! No more getting stuck when trying to set off more blasts! With the ability to quickly blast one after another, you should have ample time to queue up plenty of Blasts while a Booster is active. NOTE – While blasts can be queued up quicker, please keep in mind that the boosters must still be active when each individual Munzee is processed and captured in order for any bonuses to apply. The more Munzees blasted at once, the more time it will take to capture each one. To keep things processing quickly, we recommend setting off smaller chunks of Blasts at a time. For example, 4 mini blasts should process faster than 2 regular blasts even though both are 200 total munzees.

While blasting you’ll also notice that the pins will update MUCH quicker than before to either show as captured or disappear from the map!

It’s almost the weekend which means it’s the perfect time to try out some Blasts! Shop Blast Captures in the FT Online Store HERE so you’re all stocked up for optimal testing!

So make like a bomb, and blast off with this new update!

Munzee on!

E-mail Address Updates

Have you checked your Munzee account details lately?

We want to make sure you don’t lose access to your Munzee account! A future update will require you to use your e-mail address instead of your username to log in. This also means that any Munzee accounts sharing an e-mail address must be updated so that they have unique e-mail addresses.

Please do take some time to make sure your e-mail address is correct. You can do so at Make sure to click the green [Save Settings] button if you make any changes!

An Update Regarding MEGA Blasts

Ever since we introduced the Mini and MEGA Blast Captures via the In-App Store, we’ve been monitoring their processing times and also how they affect the overall app’s performance. Over the years we’ve made various code changes in the hopes of improving things, but after our recent tests, we’ve decided it’s time to retire the MEGA Blast.

As you can see in the first screenshot below, we’ll be removing the MEGA Blast from the selection screen and will also remove it from the In-App Store. Since 1 MEGA Blast could capture up to 500 virtual munzees, while regular Blasts can capture up to 100 virtual munzees, if you have any MEGA Blasts in your inventory, we will be converting them to regular Blasts at the exchange rate of 1 MEGA Blast = 5 regular Blasts.

Another change shown in the screenshots above is that we’ll also lower the max number of Mini Blasts and regular Blasts you can fire at once. You will only be able to fire 4 Mini Blasts or 3 regular Blasts at a time (200 – 300 virtual munzee captures). We’re making this change for the same reason as removing the MEGA Blast — to improve the app’s performance and reduce processing times.

While we understand that the convenience of setting off a larger number of Blast Captures will be missed, we believe that this change will provide a better experience in the long run — instead of wondering when your blasts will complete, they should finish within just a few minutes once this update is out. In addition, you’ll be able to set off more blasts much sooner, which is especially good if you have to move to another location. No more feeling like your phone is locked up by in-process blasts!

Munzee on!

In-App Map Link Update!

The focus of our Tech Team the past few months has been to address the unresolved Known Issues — namely the “GPS Sticking or Not Following” issue. We are happy to report that some of our beta testers have noticed that this latest app update has resolved these issues for them. If you’re still experiencing any GPS issues after trying a fresh install, please follow up with so that we can investigate further. In the meantime, we’re also still investigating the floating pin issue some are encountering on Android.

In addition, today’s app update includes work on another improvement which we’ll go into detail about below, along with other various bug fixes and tweaks.

If you’re interested, you’ll need to download the latest update — which is 4.1.155 on Android and 4.1.156 on iOS — from your device’s App Store. If you do not see the latest update in the App Store, you’ll need to check back later. On Android devices, you could try clearing the cache of your Google Play Store app to see if you can force your store to refresh.

In-App Map Links!

Similar to the Permalink feature on the Web Map, you can now generate links to specific munzees OR areas on the map from the app! Here’s how:

Specific Munzee Map Link:

  1. Navigate to your desired munzee’s [Details] screen
  2. In the top-right corner, tap […]
  3. Tap [Copy URL]
  4. A popup with the URL will appear
  5. Tap [OK] on the popup
  6. Another popup should appear at the bottom confirming you’ve copied the URL to your device’s clipboard
  7. Paste where needed!

Map Area Link:

  1. Navigate to your desired area on the map
  2. Tap and hold your finger on the screen for 3+ seconds
  3. A confirmation popup will appear
  4. Tap [Yes] on the popup
  5. A popup with the URL will appear
  6. Tap [OK] on the popup
  7. Another popup should appear at the bottom confirming you’ve copied the URL to your device’s clipboard
  8. Paste where needed!

Please note that creating links to bouncing munzees — i.e. Unicorns — will NOT work as they are not tied to a specific set of coordinates. If you navigate to a link created for a bouncing munzee as shown in the next section, it will always bring you to (0, 0) — the middle of the ocean.

In-App Map Links = Deep Links

When you tap on an In-App Map Link, it will work differently depending on the device being used to access them:

  1. If you’re using a laptop or desktop computer, the link will launch the Web Map centered on either a specific munzee or area on the map, depending on how the link was created
  2. If you’re using a mobile device:
    1. If you do NOT have the Munzee App installed, the link will launch your device’s App Store and navigate to Munzee’s app page so you can download the app
    2. If you do have the Munzee App installed, the link will launch an intermediary page, as you can see in the screenshot below
      1. Once you tap [OPEN], one more confirmation popup will appear
      2. Tap [Open] on that popup and it will launch the Munzee App, moving the map so that it is centered on either a specific munzee or area on the map, depending on how the link was created
        1. If the link is for a specific munzee, it will also display the Summary Panel at the top, as if you’ve selected it on the map!

If the link doesn’t open to the correct location, try tapping it again to reload! NOTE – players tapping the links must have the latest build installed for them to work as expected.

Use Cases

  • All players can now share a link to any Munzee or location on the map!
  • New players can share a location to ask for help and nearby deploys
  • Players looking to trade virtual deploys can drop a link to where they’d like it
  • Event Hosts can quickly link players to where to deploy for the event
  • Garden Builders can easily share a link to the location of their Garden
  • Sick or injured players requesting for nearby deploys while they recover

We hope you find this feature useful, and thank you for your continuing patience as we work to fix the outstanding app issues! If after installing this update, you are still experiencing the main issue mentioned above, please e-mail with your device model and OS combo.

Munzee on!

An Update to Premium Membership Benefits

Lately we’ve made many updates to Premium Memberships. Just last September, we created the Monthly Premium Membership which we thought would be useful to those who only need Premium abilities at certain times of the year. Two months later, we added the ability for Premium users to use filtered blasts. Last month, we experimented with our first ZEE-Dayz exclusively for Premium Members.

This update brings more improvements to the Premium Membership. To make sure you’re adequately informed, we’ve written this blog post so that you will know of the changes in advance.

The changes described below will be effective as of 12:00 MHQ on Monday, May 2nd.

Out the Door

At the time stated above, the Munzee app will no longer support the Multi-User Login (MUL) feature. Our team has gone back and forth on this feature for quite some time, so we feel we owe our players some transparency as to how we came to this decision.

When the game was first introduced almost 11 years ago, the MUL was created for families who played together and only owned 1 device. Over the years devices for multiple family members have become more common, and although we understand the convenience the MUL has been more trouble than we would like.

Our evaluation of the MUL went something like this:

Pros Cons
  • Allow families with multiple Munzee players to easily play on one device
  • Quick access for another player if battery dies or signal is lost
  • Most families with multiple Munzee players are now able to provide a device for each player
  • Players who create fake accounts take advantage of this feature to quickly accumulate points or meet requirements for Clan Wars, badges, etc.
  • Development time is increased as new app features must distinguish between the active account and any other logged-in accounts
  • Testing time is also increased as we must make sure that all app features work even as we quickly switch between 3 different accounts
  • The ability to quickly switch between accounts is quite rare among apps — a unique feature rather than one that is standard

Knowing that the original purpose of the MUL has been outgrown, along with all the other cons listed above, we have decided to remove the MUL from the app.

In light of this change, we encourage players to carry external batteries to keep their main device charged and/or bring extra devices in case issues come up so that they can switch and continue playing — things which many of you are already in the habit of doing.

Otherwise, it just takes a few extra steps to log out and then log in to another account the old-fashioned way.

In Comes More

We understand some will be upset by the decision to remove MUL, but we want to continue to offer a positive Premium Membership experience. So we’re excited to announce that we are in the process of testing out 2 NEW additional features we think all Premium Members will enjoy. Please understand that these new features are a trial/test and we want to gather feedback from players to make sure this is an appropriate addition to the game.

+5 Additional Filter Preset slots +1 Increased Magnet Effectiveness
  • This will bring the total to 10 custom filter presets!
  • Standard munzees will now attract 4 bouncers
  • Landing Pad Destinations will now attract 7 bouncers

We’re always looking to bring more value to Premium Memberships as they help keep our app running. These updates are just the beginning — we’ve got more in the works, so keep an eye out for future announcements!

Updates to the Daily Activity Tracker

At the end of January, we released an update featuring a new Daily Activity Tracker screen. We’ve always planned to include rewards for completing streaks up to certain days, so we’re happy to announce that that feature is in this latest update, along with some other improvements suggested by you, the players!

If you’re interested, check to see if you’ve received Build #857 over-the-air — to find out what version you are currently on, look at the bottom of the [Help & Info] –> [About Us] page inside the app. If you have not received the latest automatic update, please restart the app. It may take a few tries depending on your Wi-fi/data connection.

NEW Rewards!

As you can see in the screenshots below, we’ve updated the calendar on the Daily Activity Tracker so that some rewards are sprinkled throughout the month.

After Day 28, the cycle of prizes starts over again — so that’s why in the screenshots above, you can see a Zed icon again on March 31st.

There are a few important things to note:

  1. You MUST tap the green [Collect Reward] button in the bottom-right corner of the calendar on the day the reward is available for it to be added to your account. If it is not collected before the next MHQ day, the calendar will update and you will not be able to collect the reward.
  2. If your streak is broken at any point, it will cause the cycle to reset, and push back the rewards for all subsequent days accordingly.
  3. As noted in our previous DAT blog, it may take a minute to update your streak information after a capture or deploy is completed. This means that if you tap the [Collect Reward] button while your captures or deploys are still processing, you may see the text on the button change to “Verifying…” like in the screenshot on the right. If you see this, you can stay on the screen and wait for all the processing to complete, or just try again later.

Other Improvements

Many players requested that we add the ability to scroll the calendar back so they can more easily see their past progress. We’ve added a small arrow button to the top-left corner of the calendar so you can scroll back to the previous month, and similarly, a small arrow button to the top-right corner of the calendar to return to the current month.

We hope this update brings some changes you were looking forward to, or, at the very least, runs smoothly for you! If you find that you are experiencing any issues, please let us know at!

Another Update to Streaks

Last week, we did a quick announcement on our social media pages (FB|TWTR|IG) about a change we’d made regarding Universals and capture streaks. However, from that post we’ve received reports of additional inconsistencies from you, the players. So, in the interest of clarity and simplicity moving forward, we are making some more changes, which we’ll go into detail about below.

But before we get into all that, we’d like to put your mind at ease with some very important points:

  • The changes described below will be effective as of Tuesday, February 22nd.
  • The changes will only apply to activity moving forward from that date — so past streak progress will not be affected.
  • Streaks affected by the change we made on February 14th will be restored, to put everyone on equal footing for the upcoming update. However, that does not mean we’ve completely changed our minds about Universals, as you’ll see below.

Passive Activity

We’ve always stated in our blog posts that passive deploys, which are deploys automatically made by the app on your account, do not count for deploy streaks. A recent example of this are the Flamingo Feather scatters — the intent behind those is to increase the point potential for you, the deployer — not to count for streaks, since they required no action from you.

Similarly, we consider the tPOBs deployed as the final stage of Animal Evolutions and 2nd/3rd/nth Mech forms, such as the MUMM33, to be passive deploys, since the app automatically deploys these without you, the deployer, triggering them. However, it was brought to our attention that they have been counting for deploy streaks, which was never our intention. So, effective Feb 22nd, all such automatically deployed bouncers will no longer count towards deploy streaks.

Said another way, any deploy triggered by an action you’ve done will count. Of course, all the regular manual deploys you’d expect will count, but also deploys triggered by a purchase, as is often the case with any new Mechz we sell.

Location-less Game Pieces

The intent behind Socials, Personals, and Universals was to encourage Munzee players to socialize and build connections with others who share the same hobby. As it takes some effort to obtain and deploy these game pieces, they will count towards deploy streaks. However, if they are redeployed (especially in the case of Personals), the date that they count for will change, since the deploy on them can only count once. So, it’s best to not rely on them for deploy streaks.

On the other hand, captures of these pieces will not count towards capture streaks. As Socials and Universals are location-less, and Personals can be deployed up to 10 times a day, this makes the effort to capture them much lower than other game pieces.

We hope this post clears up any confusion regarding streaks, and that you are prepared for tomorrow’s update.

Munzee on!

NEW In-App Daily Activity Tracker!

One of the first things you learn when you’re just getting into Munzee is that the most impressive accomplishments are related to streaks — meaning either capping, deploying, or both each day, for as long as you can! While capping each day can be difficult for those who live in munzee-sparse areas, and on the other side of the coin, deploying each day can be difficult for those who live in munzee-dense areas, the main difficulty most players have is making it part of their daily routine.

In the past, players have relied on simpler solutions, such as setting alarms on their devices, or more complex solutions, such as using third-party tools, to remind them to cap and/or deploy for the day. While there’s nothing wrong with using those solutions, we’ve always wanted to have a built-in option for you to use as well!

If you’re interested, check to see if you’ve received Build #834 over-the-air — to find out what version you are currently on, look at the bottom of the [Help & Info] –> [About Us] page inside the app. If you have not received the latest automatic update, please restart the app. It may take a few tries depending on your Wi-fi/data connection.

Daily Activity Tracker

The Daily Activity Tracker allows you to view your captures and deploys for each day of the month to help track your streaks. It will appear before the map the first time the app is launched each day. Afterwards, you can access it by going to your Profile –> [Stats] –> [Daily Activity Tracker].

The Current and Highest Streak counters at the top track how many days in a row you have either captured or deployed a Munzee.

The calendar in the middle is the main attraction, but we’ll get into more detail on it below!

The Monthly Streak Challenge at the bottom features the unique Flamingo skin that can be earned by keeping up your activity streak each month. Make sure all of the boxes for the month are colored orange or green to qualify for the skin reward!

Colors on the calendar are color coded to help you quickly see which activity happened on which days:

  • If it’s flashing yellow, make sure to complete your activity for the day!
  • If you’re aiming for the Deploy Streak Badges, make sure all the boxes are orange!
  • If you’re aiming for the Capture Streak Badges, make sure all the boxes are green!
  • If you’re aiming for the Capture & Deploy Streak Badges, make sure all the boxes are split between orange and green!
  • Make sure to avoid any red missed days that will break your streaks!

Please note that it may take a minute to update your streak information after a capture or deploy is completed.

Premium Feature

Premium members can tap on a specific date to see a summary of the Munzees that were captured and/or deployed on that day. The tabs at the top will allow you to switch between the displays.

  • Please note that the caps/deploys listed will only show types that count towards streaks, so it won’t show caps of Socials or Universals, and it also won’t show passive deploys (such as deploys of Flamingo Feathers)

This should also make it easier to track down certain Munzees that need to be moved around, like Mailboxes.

If you’re not a member, sign up for a free trial in the app to check it out!

Capture Mulligan Integration

If you break your capture streak, a Capture Mulligan icon will appear on the missed day if there is one available for you to use.

  • Note that it might not always appear on a red day. It’s possible that it may appear on an orange day if a capture was missed.
  • If the missed day is not visible on the calendar anymore because the next month has already started, you can always purchase the Capture Mulligans directly from the In-App Store

Tap on the icon to see which Capture Mulligan is offered: 1, 7, or 14 Day.

After purchasing, it will add a capture to the day that was missed and update your current streak counter at the top.

We hope this update brings some changes you were looking forward to, or, at the very least, runs smoothly for you! If you find that you are experiencing any issues, please let us know at!

Munzee on!
