What if you want your players to start playing your game in their tablets then resume later on their phone or even Android TV...you'll need them to be authenticated from various devices this could be a problem if you're planning to use device authentication as Brendan clearly stated :
a Device ID may only be assigned to one account for your title. The model used is that for Device ID sign-in, one user is the owner of the device. Any other users signing in on it would need to use an alternate method.
The discussion started here if you want more details.

To clarify one element: The request is to be able to link multiple Device IDs for each platform. Right now, accounts can be linked to both an Android and an iOS device, as they are distinct from one another in our database.

Update: We've added the ability to link multiple devices of each type to the player account. So now, you can have a user with an iPad and iPhone both linked to the account, for example.
UserIosDeviceInfo has only 1 string for deviceId right?
How to check which Ids are linked if the user links one iphone and one ipad for example?
Currently, only the last iOS Device ID used to sign into the account will be available in the user account info (on the Game Manager, and in response to the API call). We'll be updating to more fully support the multiple-devices-of-the-same-type scenarios in an upcoming release.
I know this is an old topic, but I notice that when you link multiple devices of the same type ie 2 android devices, only one of them appears in the player->Overview->Accounts section.
Is this a bug?

This is an even older topic now but the link you posted is no longer active.
We are trying to allow players to login via Apple to their existing PlayFab account that was created using a Google account.
My strategy is this:
1) Login with Apple and get the email address (somehow).
2) Use the GetAccountInfo api call to see if the user already has an account using the email from whatever service (ex: apple) they just logged in using.
3) Ask them if they want to recover that existing account through email.
4) Once confirmed, we can link the new account to the old account. Otherwise, we can just create a new account.
Is there a better way to do this?

This is from 6 years ago. Is it still coming?
