    Just would want some feedback and ideas regarding this topic.

    I am developing what could be called a casual mobile game with PlayFab backend. The idea is that it is simple, fun and people can play this on their mobile devices wherever they are and can jump in whenever they want. It is a multiplayer turn-based game.

    The process is as follows:
    1. Install game on phone
    2. Start for the first time
    3. Automatic application login without the need for email, password etc. Player can play but with limited functionalities such as stats etc.
    4. Player can register a player name with email and password and by that get full functionality
    Up to this point all is kind of obvious.

    The question is for recommendations about logout and registration of new players in this type of mobile games where the game is running on a personal mobile device (phone only).

    So my questions are:
    1. Should the player be able to register another player on the mobile device to change user?
    2. Should there be a logout function?
    3. How to handle player accounts in regards to GDPR when player choose to stop playing and remove game from phone?
    4. Should the player be able to delete account from PlayFab? If so, from the game, a website?
    If the player is registered and have a username the account can be recovered via login to a new device.

    Initially I thought this was a given as players may want to change but I am not sure now and would like to get some ideas how to handle this and what more experienced people recommend?
