The surest bet is to connect it to Facebook. If you have it there, you can recover your game after the reset or even pick up playing on another device.

If it is an Apple device, make sure you log into GameCenter then open PB. I don't understand how it works, but it somehow connects your PB player identity to your Game Center ID. The Gamecenter info is saved in the cloud, so it will still be there after the reset. The game should be there when you log into Gamecenter with that ID after the reset or on any other Apple device with PB installed.

I think Google Play works similarly for Android users.

You might want to contact PB support before you do it to make sure they can see your game in one of those places.

When you open the game after the reset connect to FB and it will ask if you wish to switch to your Facebook game and you say yes, it will tell you all progress in the new game will be lost. All 2 minutes of it and say yes and your back to your old game. I had to bring a phone to factory before. 3 minutes to reset 5 hours to get everything back to what you had, passwords, bookmarks, apps, and so on. Good luck my friend.

GameCenter still exists, they just got rid of the icon and most of its functionality. It is found in the settings menu now and all we can do is log in and delete the entire friend list (which doesn't work much anymore anyway). Logging in to GameCenter still enables a player to be recognized across multiple Apple devices.

Re moderator. I think this happens automatically when you edit a post a lot. I am terrible at fake keyboards and need to edit messages multiple times. For some reason, their software thinks people who are fussy about typos and punctuation must be dubious characters, and about the third edit will automatically trigger that review message.

Back to the original question - if you don't want to use Facebook, I think Google Play has a backup player I'D functionality as well. If you play on an Android device, try connecting to Google Play within your game. People have reported that Google Play is not reliable . I suggest contacting support to make sure they can see your game in Google Play before you reset.
