Volkswagen emails employees not to play Pokemon Go

By Faiming_low on 13 Aug 2016

Attached Image Bild, a German publication, has reported that Volkswagen is worried about its 70,000 employees playing Pokemon Go during working hours as the highly popular app uses cameras, geolocation and data sharing. Beside the safety issues that come along with the game, the Volkswagen bosses are more worried about their factory secrets being exposed accidentally via the app.

This has lead to Volkswagen emailing its employees to inform them that playing the game during work hours is strictly prohibited. Installation of the app on their phones is also strongly discouraged.

However, the workers did not seem bothered by the move as those that play the game reported that there is nothing rare nor interesting that could be caught on the factory grounds.

Since young, Fai Ming has always centered his life around cars. In fact his first word was 'car' and not 'mum' or 'dad'. Aren't kids cute?
