Hello,

I wrote a custom no password solution for a mobile game.

The data for automatic login is deleted though when someome reinstalls the app or updates.

They then lose their corresponding saved game data on the server.

How do I write a file in android/ios that just stays on the phone despite app uninstall?

Ok, it looks like the way to keep login id is:

Google Play Games on Android

and

GameCenter on ios.

I'm going to learn these I spose.  Question: Anyone have tips on code in Air to access these?

You need to use native extentions to access them. I know Distriqt and Milkman Games have ANEs you can buy.

Ultimately those frameworks combine a device identifier with a back end service and that's how they can recover data for that device if any is lost. This is something you can do yourself if you have your own server.
