I should be clear and state that Pokémon Go was released in the USA and Australia for about a week now. On the iPhone, people basically tricked their phones into seeing the American app store. This allowed them to download the game to their iPhone.
As for those of you on an Android device, there is a risk of getting your phone infected. See, what you’ve had to do is basically download what’s known as an APK file. This basically an installer that you can run on your Android phone. This APK file will basically install the game on your phone. However, this meant going into the settings and ticking the box that gave you the ability to install Pokemon Go on your phone. I guess what I am trying to say, is that we don’t know what is in one of these APK files hosted on a website. For all we know they could have a virus hidden in them.
In any case, go forth and catch ’em all.
Have you been playing Pokémon Go already? If so, what are your thoughts on this game? Let me know in the comments.
