Pokemon GO Player Trading What We Know So Far

Al Franken (D-Minn.) sent a letter to Niantic, the company behind Pokemon Go, posing a series of questions to clarify how the company will handle user information.

There have been recent reports that people with iPhones who signed into Pokémon Go in their Google accounts basically gives the game complete access to your Google account (though that's reportedly being fixed).

Those in Germany using either iOS or Android will find that the Pokemon Go game is now available to download from the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store, respectively.

To halt the company from using any information, reach out to this email address to submit a request.

That data "can then be shared with [the app provider] and "third party service providers"... for a non-exhaustive list of purposes". Since using the VPN to download the game is usually ineffective, you can download the game from the following links. iPhone users will have to wait for an official release unless they prefer jailbreaking their devices.

They are everywhere. Pikachu and Venusaur and the many characters of Pokémon are taking over virtual spaces and being captured by fans with a smartphone and the downloadable Pokémon Go app by Niantic and Nintendo. V1.0.1 now only asks to see your email addresses and your basic information.
