Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI) Will Require Facebook App to Login, Facebook Data Transfer to Stop After September 28

Android users will need to complete data transfer before 28th September.


While the gaming community in India was elated at the prospect of returning to their favourite battle royale game, BGMI did come with its fair share of concerns. Fans who had racked up quite the stat-sheet and ranked up in PUBG Mobile were concerned whether they will be able to transfer their progress and retain their rewards and ranks from the game in BGMI.

Thanfkully, Krafton had a decent data-transfer system in place that allowed players to transfer their progress from Facebook/Twitter accounts quite easily. However, now, due to changes and updates related to the Facebook SDK, Android users will need to download the Facebook app on their phone in order to log-in using their Facebook account in BGMI.

Krafton has advised players that they complete the data transfer by September 28th should they wish to use their Facebook linked account. BGMI will be shutting down of Data Transfer after 28th September and will remove the embedded browser through which players could log-in to their Facebook account.

Official Patch Notes:

Shutdown of Data Transfer with Facebook accounts : after September 28 Patch

  > We will further update you the details of schedule

  > Target platform : AOS

*iOS not relevant

After October 5th, players will need to download the Facebook app should they want to continue log-in using their Facebook account. While this is not exactly convenient, there is enough time for players to complete their data transfer in BGMI or risk losing their progress from PUBG Mobile entirely.

iOS users won’t be facing any such issues in BGMI as the changes are only specific to Android devices.
