:: RT: Is Pokémon Go a "huge security risk"? ▶ https://goo.gl/fjtZuh ◀ A number of these games are not only making money on the front end by selling you the game or things within the game, they’re also collecting data about your habits and what you’re doing on your phone, and selling that to third-party marketers. ↠ #PokemonGo #AugmentedReality #AR #Games #Technology #Privacy #Pikachu #Venusaur #Charizard #Blastoise #Charmander #Charmeleon


Pay close attention to the scope of access that apps request during installation — or to look up the details online — and say “no” if the demands make you uncomfortable.

If you are unsure about the permissions you have already granted, check them on iOS by clicking on Settings and scrolling down for a list of apps that you can examine and change individually. On Android, click Settings and click Apps under the Device Settings, then choose an app and select Permissions.

Permissions are not the only things to worry about; you also need to know what kinds of data an app is collecting from your phone. Information about those is typically contained in an app’s privacy policies, which are often available within the settings of an app, or searchable online. If you cannot find the disclosures, or you are unable to understand their legalese, consider holding off until you learn more.

As for Pokémon Go, while the game may not be digging through emails, it is capable of tracking your location.

Pokémon Go represents one of those moments when a new technology — in this case, augmented reality or A.R., which fuses digital technology with the physical world — breaks through from a niche toy for early adopters to something much bigger. The idea behind the technology is to overlay digital imagery on a person’s view of the real world, using a smartphone screen or a headset.

In the case of Pokémon Go, players traverse the physical world following a digital map, searching for cartoon creatures that surface at random. People look through their smartphone cameras to find Pokémon. When an animated creature appears, they toss Pokéballs at it until it is subdued.

Like the most successful mobile games, while Pokémon Go is free to play, it gives players opportunities to buy virtual items for a few dollars to speed up their progress. The game’s real-world nature also gives Niantic another intriguing moneymaking possibility, by charging fast-food restaurants, coffee shops and other retail establishments to become sponsored locations where people are motivated to go to pick up virtual loot.
