Share accounts in a family


#1

We are 5 people in the family, each one of us is playing E&P with their own email. The thing is we share our emails and passwords, we play for each other. For example, my sons are playing all boring stuff for me like farming and resources collection, and I help them with difficult stages. And all accounts are connected to my credit card :slight_smile:
Do we brake any rule here?


#2

Family, is family! My advice is to not share the card. Maybe YOU will have surprises :slightly_smiling_face:


#3

it’s a limited one, don’t worry :slight_smile:
We have a limited budget and so far nobody got crazy, but, most importantly, we trust each other.
I just want to know if we brake any rule here.
E&P is not very clear about that.

Yeah, I don’t know … clarity is in the eye of the beholder, no?

You must keep the password (including without limitation password and other means to access your account or user ID) required for the use of the Service secret and not disclose it to anyone else. You may not assign or transfer your user ID to a third party and you may not allow a third party use the Service with your user ID. If a third party has obtained your password or you have a reason to believe that a third party has obtained your password, you must immediately inform Small Giant Games.

You shall not share the account or login information (user ID), nor let anyone else access your account or do anything else that might jeopardise the security of your account. You are solely responsible for anything that happens through your account, including all uses of the login information and purchases made, whether or not authorised by you.

Clear as mud? (Ironically, that saying has never been all that clear to me.)

That’s really concerning, because in a family this things are shared anyhow. That’s why even Apple and Google lets you share family accounts.


#6

Family ITS family, Children, wife, i think ITS fine. It’s about trust. FOR your safe, Take care of your accounts and… just do your thing, grow up ur teams! Good luck!


#7

If each account has it’s own Google Play or Apple Game Center ID associated with it, I don’t think you’re breaking any terms of service rule. The person actually doing the physical screen taping shouldn’t matter.


#8

We do have different Apple Game Center and Google Play ids. The thing is if I want to play with my son’s account I just sign out of my account and then sign in his account. It’s not just switching the phones. How can E&P prevent me doing that?


#9

They can’t prevent you from doing any of that. What they can do is not help you if you have a problem. They will likely say you are violating some term of service. It’s similar to when someone has multiple accounts for themselves on the same device. Whatever you do, don’t tell anyone that works for SG what any of your game IDs are. They will likely flag you as a multiple account person. Short of any problems…have fun. That sounds like a cool situation for your family.

I will leave it to @Petri or some other employee to interpret the TOS. I’ll share a cautionary tale: a former alliance member let her (young) child play her account for a bit. When she took the phone back, she found the child had fed all her 5* heroes away. Needless to say, this didn’t end well. SGG didn’t restore the account, per the TOS (“You are solely responsible for anything that happens through your account, including all uses of the login information and purchases made, whether or not authorised by you.”). The player quit, too disheartened to try to rebuild her team.


#11

I would delete this thread and stay off their radar now that Petri has been summoned. Keep playing as you are and make sure none of your kids maxes your credit card.


#12

well , i don’t trust my daughter anymore … last time she bought a useless defender pack for 600 gems … lol :slight_smile:


#13

We are talking about a family of 5 adults. No worries like that.


#14

I would imagine if they ban you on a phone game for sharing with your family they may have more problems with Google and Apple than it’s worth, after all you are sharing a Google or Apple account and the SGG account is tied to that…
