Use your AFK Arena account on PC
If you already have an account you’ve played on, on mobile and wish to use that on PC, this is how you do it.
Firstly, you’ll have to link your account on your mobile device to either a Gmail or a Facebook account. If you are on IOS, you have to link it to a Facebook account as the BlueStacks emulator is running Android and therefore can’t log into an Apple ID.
To link your account, press your profile image in the top left corner when inside AFK Arena. A profile window will now appear. Press the “Account” button and press “Link”. You’ll now be able to choose between Gmail and Facebook.
Once you’ve linked your account, head back into AFK Arena on BlueStacks on your PC. Here you’ll have to complete a bit of the intro before you are able to press the profile icon in the top left corner.
Once you’re able to click the profile icon, go ahead and press it. The same profile window as above will appear. Click on “Account” again, but this time click “Switch”.
Again, you’ll be able to choose between Gmail and Facebook, choose whichever one you linked your AFK Arena account to and log in.
After logging in, your game will restart and you will be on your own account with the same progress as you’ve previously acquired.
