Warning about Pokemon Go

Thanks to Jenny McKenzie for this information...Please read below:

A friend sent me the following info, and I'm forwarding it to you.
I just learned about Pokemon....

If you download the Pokemon Go app on your personal device, you may want to think twice 
about your privacy settings because Pokémon Go and its creator, Niantic, can now:

.             Read all your e-mail 
.             Send e-mail as you 
.             Access all your Google drive documents (including deleting them) 
.             Look at your search history and your maps navigation history 
.             Access any private photos you may have stored 

This advisory has been generated to increase cybersecurity awareness and minimize the 
compromise of personal data.

Have a great day!
