Posted on: August 31, 2016 by titan-goodrich

Pokémon Go has gone viral, acquiring more than 20 million users and amassing more users than Twitter within a few days of its launch. Though this phenomena has taken our culture by storm, there are a few unintended risks that business owners must assess.  As you seek to understand the business risks augmented reality games pose, make sure you stay protected with a Virginia Business Insurance Policy.

For small businesses, this can be a huge threat and should be analyzed as part of the risk management plan. Keep your business and employees safe by implementing strict rules against playing augmented reality games on their work phone.

Pokemon Go has full access to your Google account. This means that when a person creates a profile, they are granting full accent access of nearly all information, according to Google. In addition, hackers have created knock-off apps that contain malware that affect smart devices.  If you have important documents saved on to a cloud service or even on your device, your business can be vulnerable to a data breach. It’s essential that your company installs strong hardware firewalls to keep hackers out.
