Voor iedereen die gretig aan het spelen is of er gretig op wacht:

As you may have herd this last week or so, Pokemon Go is quite a phenomon. Millions of downloads, people hanging out in parks trying to catch their latest character.

However, there is a shady side to this application. It is desperatly greedy for information. It quite literally wants to catch all of your data. It gives the right to the app, and therefore the company to download all of your videos, photos, address book, friends etc etc, and then at their discretion pass it on to any law enforment or goverment agency they want. See the terms here:

…to government or law enforcement officials or private parties as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate: (a) to respond to claims, legal process (including subpoenas); (b) to protect our property, rights, and safety and the property, rights, and safety of a third party or the public in general; and (c) to identify and stop any activity that we consider illegal, unethical, or legally actionable activit

Also it must be noted that the maker of this app, Niantic, is owned by a John Hanke who use to make security products for the Nation Geospatial Intelligence Agency (part of the DoD). So your data is in safe hands.....

There is very little to stop them targeting an individual and getting to go to a special place to get a special pokemon. While that is happening, they can video the entire inside of a house or protected area, perhaps look for suspects or persons of interest, perhaps make blueprints of buildings. The choice is theirs.

Just think twice before being caught up with this craze if you have anything in your life that needs to kept secure, safe or secret.
