Pokémon GO streamer raises alarm, claims Niantic is compromising user privacy in massive security breach

Another day, another problem. My favorite sentence when it comes to Pokémon GO. However, this time, it is a really bad problem that I hope will be fixed as soon as possible.

A recently published video by PokéAK shifted my attention to what is actually happening in Pokémon GO. He discusses a security issue related to Pokémon GO, where he explains that there is a security breach that allows individuals to obtain email addresses associated with specific Pokémon GO accounts with minimal information.

This is a significant concern, especially for content creators who rely on the game. PokéAK emphasizes the need for increased security measures and suggests changing passwords to protect accounts.

To give out private information about your users is not cool at all. Many of us seek peace in Pokémon GO, and to find out that they have been doing this, has really disappointed me. I really hope that they will do something, and issue an apology to all of us.

What do you think about this? Tell us in the comments below.
