· Watch where you are walking, be aware of your surroundings and do not walk out into roads without looking.

· Do not play the game and drive any vehicle or ride any personal mobility device at the same time. You cannot do both safely.

· Do not trespass onto restricted areas and private properties. Do not take pictures of restricted areas.

· Be aware that you are potentially sharing data with others; there could be potential criminals who may seek the opportunity to lure victims to their fake “Pokéstops”.

· Educate your children to stranger-danger at “Pokéstops”.

· Never reveal your personal information and watch out for fake apps or cheat tools. Cyber criminals can access your personal data to commit fraud or hack into your phone with viruses and malware.
