The Portal is a Stealth Program which lets you start an attack from the node it was installed on. Once the Brute Force phase starts, the node installed with a Portal is considered captured. Similar to Wraith, the Portal deletes itself once installed.
- Notes: While the Portal is technically allowed to upgrade at the Evolver levels displayed, the Capacity of B-coins that can be held at those levels may not be sufficient to purchase the upgrade.
More Info here: Max amount of B-coins at Core Level.

- Make your way to the node you wish to Portal by using Access programs.
- Portal can not be installed on Code Gates with an active filter. Use Wraith to disable them first.
- Nodes with Portal installed do not count as a netConnection, therefore Kraken can not be installed there.
- Depending on location, it is generally useful to portal on a node with plenty of program slots and high firewall, such as the Core or Black ICE, or a node with many connections to quickly advance.
- It is generally a high risk to Portal onto a chokepoint or any node with low firewall directly connected to a security node.
- Since a node with portal installed is considered captured, use this to your advantage by portaling on a security node - it may save you a Wraith or at least precious time.
- Protect your Portal - the network will attempt to recapture the node instantly. Attack can not be started from the portal once it has been recaptured.
- Beware of Scanners - since Portal takes a long time to install, Scanners may alert the network before you are able to completely install Portal on a node.
