Subway Surfers is one of the most popular runners that was hugely popular 5-7 years ago, but still has a lot of fans. If you have been playing the game for a long time and do not want to lose your progress if you lose or replace your mobile device, you should save your game progress. Today we will tell you several ways to do this, and you can choose what will be to your liking.
How to Save Progress in Subway Surfers
First, it is worth noting that saving an account and game progress is not the same thing. In Subway Surfers, you can link your account to Facebook, but it doesn’t help you much. By linking your account to Facebook, you save only your account, but not your game progress. If you later want to enter the game on a new device and return your account via Facebook, you will restore the list of friends and the nickname of your account, but the game progress is deleted. Few people know about it, and therefore many players lose their data without even knowing it.
In addition, not so long ago, a new function was added to the game that allows you to save your game progress, and here’s what you need to do for this:
- Launch the Subway Surfers game and go to Settings.
- Then click Save Online. After that, the game saves on your Google Play or iCloud.
- If you want to restore your game progress by downloading the game to another device, you need to go to the settings again and click Save Online.
But this method does not work if you need to save the game to transfer game progress from Android to iOS or vice versa. Then you should use one of the following methods.
Save the Game Progress Locally
Saving a game locally is the easiest and doesn’t require much effort. You need to use the appropriate app, such as SaveShare, and then follow the prompts to save the progress to your device. Then you can transfer the saved file to another device or a flash drive, and if you need, you can restore the game progress without any problems.
Save the Game Progress in the Cloud
The second method is somewhat related to the first since you still need to save your game data first. Next, you need to upload the saved file to the cloud. In the cloud, the game progress will not go anywhere, and you can always download the saved game file to your device and continue playing from where you left off.
Finally, we add that when you save the game, you make a copy of the progress at the time of saving. You can continue to play and develop your progress, and to have the most up-to-date saves, make backups as often as possible.
