Privacy is like your personal bubble in the digital world. Guarding our privacy is like protecting our personal space in the Wild West of the internet.
However, it is not a good thing when that personal space is violated by a game you trust the most, and play the most. Especially when you have a bigger fanbase, and around two hundred people watch your stream on Twitch.
This is what happened to @Lauren_lolly_ who took the chance to claim that Niantic violated their privacy by displaying their email address after the game logged them out without any warning while streaming on Twitch.
I am not ok. @NianticHelp I was streaming on twitch and the game logged me out without warning and displayed my email address on screen in front of TWO HUNDRED PEOPLE. this is NOT ok and my privacy is completely violated. Please amend this log out screen to NOT show the email…

Even though they deleted the vod, it was still shown to two hundred people, and now the player is scared about their privacy, which is completely understandable. We just hope that Niantic fixes this, as it can seriously damage someone’s privacy, the most sacred thing we people have.
What do you think about this?
