Pokémon Go, got the fever?

Pokémon Go is undoubtedly very popular and new users as well as old ones are doing everything to get their hands on the augmented reality.

Don’t be fooled  by sites promoting and even giving you pointers on how to obtain non curetted installation files. Perhaps what some fans are not realising is that almost certainly this requires you lowering your security or at worst peeling off the security layer off your device -in other word jail breaking or rooting the device.
