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.”
