Admin is an ability in Among Us, which any player, including ghosts, can use to get information about other players' locations.

Usage

When in the Admin room, clicking the button next to the map will show what room everyone is in, using Yellow to anonymize the players. The map updates when someone changes rooms but does not show exact positions. It also does not reveal location info for the corridors or outside (for Polus). Impostors that are in a vent and dead bodies are also shown on the map. It is mainly used to verify the location of a Crewmate or Impostor.

Trivia

  • Lore-wise, it is implied that players' positions are known from their ID cards. The reason why their positions can't be traced out of specific areas is still unclear. Yet, it is hypothesized that the Admin ability uses some sensors hidden in specific areas to detect the number of players in rooms.
    • It is also unknown as to why exact identities cannot be traced.
  • When a Crewmate is killed, their icon will blink off momentarily. This can be effective against Impostors instantly reporting bodies that they just killed.
  • Admin is the only security ability (cameras, Doorlog, Vitals) that appears on all three currently available maps.
  • Admin is the only ability where the icon changes with the map.
  • On Polus, players in Boiler Room are not counted on Admin.
