Pokémon GO is a game designed to be played outside and therefore has risks associated with going outdoors. Also, many areas of interest e.g. Pokémon gyms, where players battle, are located in various points of interest in the world. Depending on the time of day or location, users should be aware of their own levels of comfort with going out and about into the world.
As well as this, players should always be aware of the risks associated with games or apps that require location data to work. Any app that uses a person’s location data runs the risk of giving out details about their home or local environment to others.
