Pokemon Go adds new safety warnings
Pokémon Go has been given a pretty significant update: new safety warnings.
The popular augmented reality game doesn’t just urge you to “remember to be alert at all times” and “stay aware of your surroundings” anymore. It’s gotten much more specific.
“Do not trespass while playing Pokémon Go,” one warns. “Do not play Pokémon Go while driving,” reads another. Lastly, “Do not enter dangerous areas while playing Pokémon Go” joined the game’s concerns.
Those concerns are plenty reasonable, given the number of people who’ve tweeted about injuries incurred while playing the game or complained about people trespassing in front of homes and businesses by Pokémon trainers. And we haven’t forgotten about that woman who climbed a tree in a cemetery and had to call 911 for help in getting down.
Here are those new warnings:
The original warning also got a redesign to match:
