Guest Account FAQ
Q: What is a Guest Account?
A: A Guest account is a HoDA game account that is not linked with any credentials (Game Center, Google+, or Facebook). You can access the Guest account on your device by logging out of all the credentials mentioned and selecting the Play as A Guest option. If you are starting a new account, it can be a Guest account if you don't login with any credentials to begin with. Playing on a Guest account is sometimes referred to as playing anonymously.
Q: How many Guest accounts can I have?
A: You can have one Guest account per device that you play on. If you decide to turn your Guest into a linked account, a new Guest account is created that starts at the very beginning of the game.
Q: How is a Guest account different from a linked account?
A: Because a Guest account isn't linked to any credentials, all of its data is stored on your device. This has a couple of important effects. First, It means that Guest accounts are not portable. They can only be accessed and played on the device where they were created. If you lose access to the device that it's on, you also lose access to its Guest account.
Second, since the accounts data is stored on your device, it's not backed up anywhere. This means that the game account can potentially be deleted by device resets, uninstalling the game, and manually deleting the data.
Please Note: Due to their nature, deleted or lost Guest accounts cannot be restored and Support is limited in steps they can take to assist in such cases.
Q: Should I link my Guest account?
A: We strongly recommend linking your Guest account with a login credential (Game Center, Google+, Facebook) if you've spent any money or significant time on the account or otherwise care about retaining the progress made on it.
Q: Are the advantages to using a Guest account?
A: Not really. They are quick to get started if you're just trying out the game, but if you're going to invest any significant money or time into it, we recommend linking it to protect the account data from unexpected issues.
