So the big story Monday afternoon was that Pokemon could access everything in your Google account if you linked it, including your private email and more.  The risk there, aside from invasion of privacy, would be that hackers could read and write your email.

Well late last night, Niantic, the company behind Pokemon, came out with a statement.  They said that Google will push an update, and Niantic will also update the app, to cut down on what it can access.

They DO say that the app never actually HAD that kind of access to your personal information,  but better safe than sorry, right?

In the meantime, if you want to deny access to your personal information, here’s how to do it.
