Access Points (often called Action Points), referenced in-game as AP, are the experience points of Ingress. Most gameplay actions, such as deploying Resonators , destroying Links, and creating Control Fields Δ, earn AP for the Agent and contribute to his or her Access Level.

If the same in-scanner action qualifies for multiple AP awards, the Agent will receive all of them. For example, destroying the last Resonator on a Portal which is part of a Control Field Δ earns an Agent 75 AP for destroying an enemy Resonator , 374 AP for destroying two enemy Links, and 750 AP for destroying an enemy Control Field Δ, for a total of 1 199 AP.
Unlike other actions, submitting a new Portal, submitting a new photo, or editing a Portal's information does not immediately reward the Agent with AP. Instead, the Agent receives AP when the submission is approved.
Starting 19. March 2020, recharging Resonators give 65 AP, instead of the standard 10 AP (due to the global SARS-CoV-2 pandemic).
