Beware Agents: Pokemon Go Security Breach

Post by OldIndyAgent »

Go to the news, this is happening now.

If you have downloaded Pokemon Go on a device like a phone or tablet, and use it for business, and you have customer info, name, address, documents, email address, emails, texts, etc, you are probably a victim of a security breach.

The software company has all access to camera, microphone, contacts, documents, browser history, and by user agreement, can RESELL THIS DATA!!!

Delete this game immediately!

Full access allows the app — and the company — to “see and modify nearly all information in your Google Account,” according to Google’s My Account privacy controls. It doesn’t have access to passwords or payment information, but it can read your emails, see what you’ve been searching for, and more.

The company, Niantic, said the request was a mistake and has reportedly changed the access requirement in updates to the game.
