This is a very popular game that involves walking towards and capturing cartoon characters or Pokemon’s that are displayed on the screen of your smart phone.  They are captured by by “throwing” a virtual ball from your screen.

Risks are centred around walking into objects, straying into unfamiliar or dangerous environments, access to personal data, the cost of in-app purchases and meeting strangers. There is useful guidance from the NSPCC , Parent Zone and the UK Safer Internet Centre.
