Airbus staff have been warned not to play Pokémon Go due to a “real threat’ for security of the companies premises. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Internal emails have been sent to staff at it’s UK sites and notices have been posted after the game had been detected being played by employee’s while on site. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The warning said: “We would like to inform all employees and in-situ contractors that playing ‘Pokémon Go’ is a real threat for the security of company premises, personal safety and information security.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Despite the internal notice saying the use of a device such as a phone with a camera is forbidden if not authorised, one Airbus insider appears to have taken a picture of the warning and posted it on social media. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The warning goes onto to say: “Measures can and will be taken in cases where security and safety threats are linked to the usage of Pokémon Go within our facilities,” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

A spokesman for Airbus told Deeside.com: ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“It’s a serious point – working factories are not places where people should be distracted by playing games. They can be hazardous places if not treated with respect. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Unauthorised photography has never been permitted at Airbus sites, primarily for reasons of commercial confidentiality. This applies for across the board and not just for this particular game.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
