Pokemon Go is Raising Computer Security Issues To Google Users

pokemon-1515415__180A security concern had been raised regarding the Pokemon Go. It was said that the game can actually have access to Google user’s account. According to security analysts, the game has a number of account permissions set by default. Gamers who sign in to Pokemon Go through Google account automatically gives permission to developers of the game access to their entire data.

There are two options provided when launching the game, to sign in through Pokemon trainer club or through Google. The choices seem to be off as the Pokemon Trainer Club do not acknowledge any new registrations . Therefore new registrations have no choice but to sign up using their Google accounts.

Problem is that once logged in through Google, the usual pop up option for permissions seem to be eliminated and the player is lead directly to the game. This is bad because the user will not be able to edit permissions.

Security analysts peeked into the security permissions of Google accounts tied to Pokemon Go. What they found out is a shocking discovery. All of the accounts they have looked into gives full access to the entirety of their account, leaving them no space for privacy.

Full account access granted to any third party application gives them the ability to change the information in the account, or worse, they are able to manipulate the account to their benefit without you even knowing about it.

This should be a warning to all Google users. Be careful with third party applications. Be vigilant and observant to avoid anyone having access to your account. To this date, security analysts are reaching out to developers of Pokemon Go. This could be an error on their part that should be fixed.
