It’s no secret that Pokémon GO is primarily popular amongst younger audiences. But now, developer Niantic will have their own system to support exactly this with their hit mobile game.
Announced in a recent blog post, it’s called Niantic Kids. Powered by SuperAwesome, this new feature will allow parents to register their kids for a child account with Pokémon GO. This process will walk the parents through all of the permissions needed to play the game, while restricting anything that a child probably shouldn’t have access to. This will help keep a better level of privacy over the internet. Niantic Kids is ESRB Privacy certified.
If you already sign in using the Pokémon Trainer Club login, this new feature will be supported alongside that. So no worries about awkward transitioning.
Understanding internet privacy isn’t the easiest in this modern age of information. It’s good that Niantic is making an effort to improve this for everyone.
