Does Pokemon Go collaborate with the security service?

July 18, 2016

Pokemon GoPeople all over the world are involved in playing the new game Pokemon Go where the virtual world and the real world are intercrossing. Searching for the Pokemon you explore your surroundings in real life. While users are enjoying the game the other people are trying to find some drawbacks.

The FSB operative thinks that the security service may be interested in the game much. Let’s imagine when the pokemon appears not in the park, but at high-security facility where he can be taken a photo by a military man. Because of the main aim which is to train pokemons people have to leave their houses to search for them. They do that of their own free will and with no pressure.

According to FSB operative Mikhailov, it is highly likely that the security service hasn’t taken part in developing the application, but at the same time they should be interested in it, as it is the simplest way of gathering data.

In additional, there are some cases when the game influences spiritual values. There were some extraordinary occurrences when pokemons appeared in the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, National September 11 Memorial & Museum in New York. By the way, it is forbidden to use the territory of Auschwitz where the concentration camps have been situated, as it is disrespectul towards the dead.
