How to Backup and Restore Clash of Clans

If your device is broken, lost, reset, you will lose your Clash of Clans account data. Do you know that you can backup and restore your Clash of Clans village easily to other new smartphone or tablet?
To use this feature of game, you need to link your account with your Google Account (on Android) or your Apple ID account (for Game Center on iOS).

Note

  11. Sorry,
    the support is unbelievable. They absolut don’t like to help if you
    lost a village. My son lost his village after a cellphone repair and
    supercell tells him he is not the owner of this account. And i know it
    better. he is the owner. Guy’s better we look for other similar games,
    with a really good support

    • I know that buddy, but they need your son to answer their questions to verify the ownership. Sometimes rules are rules and we just can’t break it. There isn’t any decent way for them to know it’s your son’s account except this.

  12. Good day! actually i want to ask if how can I recover my account or village if i forgot m Google account and password. I really want to recover my village, I hope you can help me please…

    Thank you
