All of this together is a recipe for dead phones.

3. It’s Really Not Free

For some iPhone users the game is also getting full access to users Google accounts. This basically is reading into user patterns by the game developer.

Also it leaves a potential risk to users from hackers.

5. It’s Dangerous
