Problems with Pokémon Go

  • My son is obsessed with Pokémon Go, but I'm hearing bad things about it. Is it safe?
  • If he's using an iPhone, he should update the app right away. The original version gave game developers full access to users' linked Google accounts, which means the app can see almost everything. A patch is now available, but he should revoke these permissions to be safe. They're located in the Google account settings under: Connected Apps & Sites >> Sign-In & Security >> Manage Apps >> Pokémon Go. After revoking the full access permissions, your son should sign out of the game and update the app. The app will ask for permission to link to his Google account, but clicking "Allow" for this version only grants access to basic account details. For even more security, click here to see seven iPhone settings your son should change right now.
