Pokemon go is the hottest AR game on the market today. Although not officially launched in many countries, people have been able to download it and test out the game. In order to sign in and play you would be required to register at the Pokemon.com website or sign in using a google account (Which is majority of players have done)
Although Pokemon has cute and harmless characters, little did many people know about when installing the game, you may have given full access to your Email, Photos, Google Drive and all other personal information associated with your Google account.
When installing Pokemon Go, you would have received the message “Full Account Access”, which means you are surrendering all personal information associated with your Google account to Niantic, the makers of Pokemon Go.
Niantic is now a Google company (thank goodness), and knock on wood they won’t use our personal information for anything either than the game, its just good to know who has access and what kind of access to your personal information.
