"We recently discovered that the Pokémon Go account creation process on iOS erroneously requests full access permission for the user's Google account. However, Pokémon Go only accesses basic Google profile information (specifically, your user ID and e-mail address) and no other Google account information is or has been accessed or collected. Once we became aware of this error, we began working on a client-side fix to request permission for only basic Google account information, in line with the data we actually access. Google has verified that no other information has been received or accessed by Pokémon Go or Niantic. Google will soon reduce Pokémon Go's permission to only the basic profile data that Pokémon Go needs, and users do not need to take any actions themselves."

-Jack Nicholson

If your heart is full of fear, you won't seek truth; you'll seek security.

In matters of national security emotion is no substitute for intelligence, nor rigidity for prudence. To act coolly, intelligently and prudently in perilous circumstances is the test of a man- and also a nation.
-Adlai E. Stevenson II

It is inevitable, that eventually the people will demand absolute security from the state... And absolute security is absolute slavery.

-Anne Morrow Lindbergh

Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.
-Helen Keller

Security is when everything is settled. When nothing can happen to you. Security is the denial of life.

-Anne Morrow Lindbergh

The spiritualist and the politician are magicians, one offering diversion, the other security, in exchange for a suspension of common sense.
-David Mamet

The system, though it may not be perfect in every part, is, upon the whole, a good one; is the best that the present views and circumstances of the country will permit; and is such an one as promises every species of security which a reasonable people can desire.
-Alexander Hamilton

The thirst for liberty does not seem to be natural to man. Most people want security in this world, not liberty. Liberty puts them on their own, and so exposes them to the natural consequences of their congenital stupidity and incompetence.
-H.L. Mencken

The word 'security' is a broad, vague generality whose contours should not be invoked to abrogate the fundamental law embodied in the First Amendment. The guarding of military and diplomatic secrets at the expense of informed representative government provides no real security...
-Hugo Black

There are one hundred men seeking security to one able man who is willing to risk his fortune.

-James F. Byrnes

Tradition becomes our security, and when the mind is secure it is in decay.

We must plan for freedom, and not only for security, if for no other reason than that only freedom can make security secure.
-Karl Popper

We spend our time searching for security and hate it when we get it.
-John Steinbeck

We will bankrupt ourselves in the vain search for absolute security.
-Dwight D. Eisenhower
