Pokémon Go had one of its first updates earlier today. Within the patch notes, Niantic addressed concerns regarding user privacy, general bugs, and more. It’s only released on iOS so far, but it shouldn’t be too long before it’s on Android devices too.
The primary concern addressed is the fact that before the update, Niantic had full access to players’ entire Google accounts. This didn’t really sit well within the community, with many upset at the lack of clarification regarding the unwarranted access. Niantic didn’t really disclose the fact that they’d have full access, you see – and they didn’t need full access. A harmless mistake, or something worse? Who knows.
It fixed more than that, though. Also in the update, we saw the following changes:
- Fixed the issue where players would need to reenter their login details after exiting the game – either intentionally or unintentionally.
- General improvements within the game, increasing stability, reducing crash frequency, and so on.
- Pokémon Trainer Club login issues corrected.
That’s all for now – if you want to take a look for yourself, head here.
