Pokémon Go: Updates With Google Permissions Fixes

Android / iOS: The internet was full yesterday due to Pokémon Go ‘s seemingly excessive access to your Google account . While this all turned out to be a bug that wasn’t as serious as it seemed, Niantic went further and tweaked a few things to make the whole process clearer.

Now when you sign up for Pokémon Go with your Google account, you will see the permission screen above. This is already a big step because the original version never showed this screen to iPhone users, which was rather strange when people found out that the app had a confusing designation of ” Full account access”. “After you now approve the basic permissions, you can continue to play the game without worrying about what data the application has access to. If you check your Google account page , you can ensure that Pokémon Go only has access to basic account information, which is essentially just your email address and name. If you’ve worried about the app’s access to your Google account before, download the update and get back to your adventures .
