Clearly you might have been playing this game and love it especially if you are 90’s kid, even if you have no idea about the app you will go for it because the Pokemon Go is an exercise game app which is fun way to loose weight.

Unfortunately its banned in some parts of Kuwait due to security reasons. The game is solely through Pokemon characters which means you have to roam around finding the anime

Although  the game is fun, it’s also dangerous because if one uses the application  for finding his favourite character and if he cross the street without acknowledgment of passing vehicle, it might lead to death.Pokemon-go playstore

It seems like new users can’t download the app through AppStore & PlayStore. You might have guessed it, all coming together now and its better that way, well that’s  my opinion.

The Interior Ministry issued a statement Friday warning users of the smash mobile phone application from taking pictures of any vital government, military or security location.

It also warned users not to pounce on Pikachus or chase Charmanders at mosques, shopping centers, malls and oil installations.

According to the Director of Al-Azhar University Dr Abbas Shoman, the game makes people look like drunkards on the roads.

He posited that the game could deceive children to the extent that they will start believing in it.

Dr Shoman wondered what has happened to the intelligence of adults who follow the illusion to such an extent that somebody hit a car due to his inattentiveness over the movement of vehicles.

The United Arab Emirates warned on Friday that criminals could exploit users of the smash hit virtual reality Pokemon Go game and other apps to hack their phones and spy on their movements.

The warning comes after Australian police said that a couple playing Pokemon Go were threatened at gunpoint in a park south of Sydney and blamed the game for a wave of crimes, traffic violations and complaints.

The wildly popular mobile app, which is based on a 1990s Nintendo game, has created a global frenzy as players roam the real world looking for cartoon monsters.

The game requires the phone to transmit its location via GPS and uses its camera which the UAE’s Telecommunications Regulatory Authority warned “violates the user’s privacy” and could lead “criminals” to spread viruses.

The TRA said Pokemon Go could result in users being spied upon and urged players not to activate their phone cameras at home or in other private areas.
