Top Tips for Staying Safe!
Talk to the children about the risks of meeting strangers and ending up in areas they don’t know. Advise them to:
- take a battery pack, the game drains phone battery and this will avoid them getting lost without a phone
- stay with friends
- watch out for others – people can get competitive!
- establish where they’ll be playing.

Meeting people they don’t know face-to-face
The game is designed to bring people together. Usually strangers. So you never know who they might meet.
There’s a physical risk
It’s easy to forget to look where you’re going with this game, but they need to be careful of where they end up. There are already stories of people being lured to places that aren’t safe for children.
It can cost a lot of money
There are in-app purchases and other incentives which can cost alot!!. Make sure the app’s set up without payment options.

Pokémon Go asks for personal information like a child’s birth date and email address. Parents have the right to contact the creators to stop them from using their personal information.
