But what is "Pokemon Go?"

>> Read more trending stories 

"Pokemon Go" is a game that can be downloaded via a free app on any smartphone -- either iPhone and Android.

The game collects settings from users' phones, including GPS and the local time, to detect where and when they are active in the game. With that information, developers have generated Pokemon that appear around users and in the environments near them.

The combination of the game and the real-world element is called augmented reality.

As users move around and seek out the characters, Pokemon appear depending on where they are and what time it is, Vox reported.

The game instructs the user, referred to as a Pokemon trainer, to track down and capture the Pokemon characters in public places.

The game encourages players to get up and out, taking users to different locations. Some have said that the game encourages users to exercise and see other things beside their phone screens.

A lot of people who play the game say it's fun and that they have created meet-up groups to play the game with friends and strangers.

Tech watchers are now concerned about the massive database the game is compiling on everyone who is playing worldwide.

So how can you educate yourself on what you're giving to companies?

You know that privacy policy you have to accept on nearly every app? The details are buried in the fine print, USA Today reported

But are there risks to "Pokemon Go" collecting the data?

Jason Hong, an associate professor at Carnegie Mellon University, said that it depends on how Niatic, the company that developed "Pokemon Go," uses it.

If the company uses it to monetize data for advertising, it could be a larger privacy threat than using it for in-app purchases.

If you think Pokemon Go is taking over, you may be right

Augmented reality is starting to take over real reality in the form of Pikachu and the rest of the Pokemon characters.

The wildly popular video game series, normally the realm of children, has taken over the lives of adults thanks to "Pokemon Go."

And if you think that the game has taken over your friends' and even your life since its release last week, you may be right.

It's also giving Twitter a run for its money when it comes to engagement.

Similar Web said that the number of Daily Active Users is nearly as high as Twitter and could overtake the social media platform.

The game is only available officially in the US, Australia and New Zealand for now, but it is available through back channels using an apk, or Android application package used to bypass the company's app store.
