Pokemon Go Users Could Become Victims of Credit Card Fraud
Pokemon Go has become a worldwide phenomenon, and it has only been available for a couple weeks. The app is free to install and play, but the way it is set up could put millions of users at risk of credit card fraud.
Pokemon Go currently has 21 million daily active users, more than the longstanding social media platform Twitter. Some researchers believe that worldwide in-app purchases on Pokemon Go will reach $58.2 billion by the end of this year and $76.5 billion by the end of 2017. That is a vast amount of money and financial information floating around a questionably secure network.
