First time login on Google Play - but it switched me to someone else's account?

★★★★ Novice

Good evening,

 

I picked up the game earlier today and I'm at the step in the tutorial where I can log in with my Google Play account, which I do, but then the app tells me it will switch me to an existing account - with someone else's name and their own progress (level 3..).

 

I got two-factor authentication on my google account, and I went and double checked for any suspicious activity and could not find any. Is this a bug? Is there a way to 'wipe' the progress on my account so I can start fresh, or can I get a brand new Player Id assigned to my account?

You need to create a new email address and do it that way if u want a new game. Otherwise it will keep going to that game if it is on your phone memory.

I'm not sure why I'd have to do that though, I didn't buy this phone second hand, and I'm the only person using it - at first I thought someone may have stolen my Google Play account, but as I mentioned earlier I can't find any signs of that having happened, and with two-factor authentication linked to my phone I'm fairly certain that my account is secure.. so I'm still curious why this would have happened in the first place. Also making a new email (and thus a new Google Play account) seems a bit extreme...
