Log into the account (If you can’t log in, try these steps for recovering your password)

Go to Account Settings.

What happens when Account Restrictions are enabled?

Enabling Account Restrictions will lock an account’s Contact Settings so that no other user can send messages, chat in-app or in-game, or find the account by its phone number.

None of these Contact Settings can be individually adjusted when Account Restrictions are turned on.

Users with Account Restrictions will see a message that the game is unavailable due to account restrictions settings.
