Egyptian institution says that gamers act like drunkards and UAE warns of Pokemon malware.
Pokemon Go, or more likely Pokemon (don’t) go, a game that is spreading around the world full speed is having a dangerous impact on your security.
As people eagerly explore their surroundings to try and capture their own beloved digital critters using their smart phones, and given the game is about GPS-based hunting, the game has shot to the top of mobile gaming charts, some of the Middle East nations have warned players about the security dangers that come with playing the incredibly addictive mobile game.
It is not all about the accessibility to your personal information, location and the fact that it is linked with your Google account that’s worrisome.
What this app gives away I more than you think. Anyone who is logged in for Pokemn Go with a Google account has unconsciously given Nintendo and developer Niantic that is owned by Google, full account access. They can edit everything on your account starting from seeing, collecting, deleting etc.. Emails, photos, documents and you history is on it and most dangerously warning is that it can send emails as you, kind of number one red flag.
Put your privacy on the first place and stay safe.
