Google to change app permissions for ‘Pokémon Go’ after security concerns



Pokémon Go players won’t have to worry about sketchy app permissions for much longer.

The developer of the game has acknowledged that it “erroneously” requested full access permission to users’ Google accounts on iOS and says Google is working with them on a fix for the issue.

In a statement provided to Mashable, Niantic, the developer of Pokémon Go, said that the app “erroneously requests full access permission for the user’s Google account,” but that no user information was compromised. 

“Pokémon GO only accesses basic Google profile information (specifically, your User ID and email address) and no other Google account information is or has been accessed or collected,” the company says, adding that Google also confirmed no other information was collected.

Radinn’s second-gen electric wakeboard is faster and cheaper

Nearly three years after we first saw Radinn's prototype electric wakeboard, the Swedish outfit is back with a redesigned version. The G2X will be on display at the Boot Düsseldorf show this week, showing off its capabilities like a swappable battery so owners don't have to wait for a two-hour charge between 25-minute rides. Those rides will be even more exciting though, since it's capable of 36 mph, up from 28 on the Wakejet Cruise. Better yet, the G2X is cheaper than its predecessor, with a price (before accessories like an add-on foil, "radical" upgrade to max out its top speed or additional battery packs) of 9,900 euros, or about $12,101 US.

It's going on sale later this year, however, there will be plenty of competition. E-Surfer Magazine lists 17 different models in the segment, and there will be new hardware shown at the Boot show from Lampuga and Elektrisches Jet Surfboard.
