Using your VCS in Atari Mode: Unique Login
Posted by Luis Vera on 07 December 2020 11:35 AM

How Games are Saved

As of this writing, saved games are not linked to individual user accounts. Games will treat players with different VCS logins as a single player. We have already changed this, so that saved games are linked to specific VCS user accounts, but the change still needs to be tested before it is deployed. We expect the next system update, anticipated in mid-December 2020, to address this.

How Chrome and Streaming Service Logins are Saved

As of the Atari VCS ship date, Chrome login credentials are not linked to individual user accounts. The last Chrome account that was logged in will be accessible to anyone subsequently logging into the VCS. For example, if Dad logs into Chrome and then logs off the VCS, anyone else in the family who logs into their VCS account can open Gmail and read Dad’s emails. The same is true for login credentials to streaming services and other browser-based apps. We have already changed this so that Chrome logins are linked to specific VCS user accounts, but we had not been able to test the change prior to shipping. We expect the next system update, anticipated in mid-December 2020, to address this.
