Krafton has updated their Battlegrounds Mobile India support page to let players know of an important detail. Players will most likely have to log in to the game via an OTP authentication. Moreover, this seems like the only way players will be able to log in to the game.
PUBG Mobile got banned in India last year and the new log in method is unlike the banned version. PUBG Mobile came with multiple login methods like via Facebook, Google Play or guest accounts. Battlegrounds Mobile is the Indian version of PUBG Mobile which is said to release this month. However, no fixed launch date for the game has been revealed yet.
Battlegrounds Mobile India OTP Authentication: What More?
Krafton is a South Korean developer which is releasing Battlegrounds Mobile India as a replacement for PUBG Mobile in India. Moreover, the game is going to be a tweaked version of PUBG Mobile for the Indian audience. Also, Krafton has added a support page for Battlegrounds Mobile India. Furthermore, the page reveals certain instructions about the OTP authentication. This includes how many times a player can request an OTP, validity of the OTP and more.
What this primarily suggests is that players will have to log in via this OTP authentication to play Battlegrounds Mobile India. Moreover, this seems like the only way to log in as of now. Additionally, the website also reveals that a player can enter verification code three times after which it will stop working. Furthermore, the verification code will be valid for five minutes after which it will expire. Players can request a code ten times after which, they will be restricted for 24 hours from requesting a new code. Moreover, ten accounts can be registered by a single phone number.
However, there is a concern revolving around players being able to migrate their data from their previous PUBG Mobile accounts to Battlegrounds Mobile India. Although Krafton has not revealed anything about data migration being possible, this might be the case. PUBG Mobile influencer GodNixon took to YouTube to reveal that data migration will be possible. However, since there is no confirmation, this is to be taken with a pinch of salt.
