There were a lot of concerns that followed Pokemon GO‘s release. One major issue was the privacy-invasive access that the game tried to implement on your device. By signing up, you were giving the game access to your Google account, even the power for Niantic to send emails via your email address! Another main issue that had to be addressed was game stability.
Luckily, Niantic was pretty quick about resolving these issues and addressed them in the new update (1.0.1) which is now available on the App Store. Niantic will no longer intrude on your Google account privacy, has fixed stability issues & crashes, and you will no longer have to enter your username and password repeatedly after you are forced to log out. That’s a great start by Niantic and we hope to see more updates follow. Stay tuned with our website for the latest news on Pokemon GO.
