We all know that Iran has been sensitive towards the Internet world and its services. Now, Iran has banned Pokémon Go, officially. They are willing to lift the ban if the Pokémon Go developer accepts the Iranian authorities’ terms and conditions.
Iran is the first country to ban Pokemon Go. If they ban adult men wearing flip-flops and shiny deli meat, I’m getting a timeshare there.

Not only is Iran suspicious about the now most famous game of the world, but other countries have also warned gamers to be careful. Israel also warned its military to stay away from this game, as it needs a camera to play it, which could expose the locations and disrupt the privacy of the military. The Chinese government, similarly, have warned its warfare team not to use the game.
