    The 'expired' message means that the email address the account was linked to, has been changed to another email address. You no longer have access to this account.

A Supercell ID will display the "Expired" message when the email address assigned to a Supercell ID has been removed and another email address has been attached to that Supercell ID. The most common situation this happens is when someone has gained access to enough of a person's account information and have provided it to a player support agent during the account verification process.

    Support generally allows a one-time exception to allow an email address assigned to a Supercell ID to be changed. This scam usually happens due to the above situation I mentioned when someone is "giving away" a high level account and provides an email address to the scammer, along with any relevant account information the scammer can use to steal the account.

    As I said before, this boils down to how willing people are to give away account information to scammers.

    I would like to see this implemented, 🤗

    One of the challenges about adding extra security to SCID is that we also have to balance between convenience and ease of use. For example, if we added a 2-Factor Authorization system for every time you logged in to your account, this would be incredibly troublesome to those who have multiple accounts. One of the whole points of the SCID system is to allow you to swap between multiple accounts quickly as easily. If you had to verify your account through a 2FA app every single time you switched accounts, this would be a monstrous time consuming task for people with multiple accounts.

    The system has to be streamlined enough to allow players to get into the game as quickly as possible and swap between accounts as easily as possible. It should also allow players who can verify their information to manage that account as well. As long as people are secure in their data hygiene, there is no issue.

    Again, we could add a million layers of security. But we can't control how careless people are with their own information. There is NOTHING we can do about that.
    but you could have an option to trust that device the first time you log on with MFA like some other sites do?

    Hi, all my accounts is linked to different gmail accounts that is still on my device, although every one has been linked to SCID. Can I delete those additional gmail accounts from my device and only keep the one I am using for personel use and purchases. If I don't delete them from my device and my phone get stolen, How safe are all my accounts?

    You can but you won't get the codes for those accounts without them.

    Don't you lock your phone? I would be more concerned about my personal info or banking info than a game account if my phone was lost. However Android and Apple both allow you to erase your device remotely.

    It makes little difference whether you delete the gmail accounts from your phone or not.

    If it gets stolen, and you have the accounts set to be remembered, then the thief will be able to connect to those accounts.

    But neither the thief nor you will be able to use those accounts on another device unless they have access to the gmail accounts to get the code. So yes, you are better removing the accounts from your device (so long as you keep the login details somewhere and cvan log in to them when needed).

    Yip, accounts details are safe in my little Black Book. Another question is, if I change passwords to those accounts after phone was stolen, will the thief loose access to them even if it is set to "Remember"?
