Link your game to your Google Play or Game Center account to save your game progress. If you switch devices, you can bring your progress with you.


Linking your game to a Google Play (Android) or Game Center (iOS) account is the best way to save your game progress.


Why? Glad you asked:


  • You can play on multiple devices. Use your tablet at home for the larger screen, but play on your phone when you’re on-the-go.
  • Lost your mobile device or bought a new one? No problem. You can bring your progress with you.
  • Recover your game progress. If you lose your game progress due to a device factory reset, a major OS update, or deleting/reinstalling the app, you can still get back in the game and pick up where you left off.

Accounts are platform-specific, but you can move them to a different device (like iOS to Android) with our self-service tool. Use it here.

Note: Connecting to Facebook will allow you to send Ally invites to Facebook friends, but will not save your account progress.


What if I don't link my game to an account?


When you play without linking to an account, all of your game progress is saved to your mobile device as an anonymous account. This has some drawbacks:

  • You can only play your game on the device you created it on.
  • You can lose your game progress due to factory resets, major OS updates, deleting/reinstalling the app, and other glitches.
  • Game progress loss is permanent. We cannot recover game data for anonymous accounts.
