Getting the Pokemon GO app from unofficial sources can lead to malicious app downloads, Check Point has warned.

In a video, Check Point explains how cybercriminals can repackage the Pokemon GO app for Android, turning it into malware that can steal sensitive information or spy on the unsuspecting user.

The company advises gamers to download apps that can detect and stop such repackaged malware.

The official Pokemon Go app can be downloaded from the Google Play Store or the Apple App store, or via the official website.
