How to Transfer PUBG Mobile Data to Battlegrounds Mobile India

By Novak Bozovic / June 18, 2021

The moment gamers from India have been waiting for (since September 2020) is finally here. And yes, we're talking about PUBG's re-entry to this country under a new yet familiar name – Battlegrounds Mobile India. With that said, we fully understand that one of the most important questions right now is whether you can transfer PUBG Mobile Account data to Battlegrounds Mobile India? Well, the short answer is – yes!

Keep in mind that most PUBG Mobile accounts from India can be transferred without any issues (such as social media-based PUBG accounts, including Facebook and Twitter). However, as noted by KRAFTON (the company behind Battlegrounds Mobile India), those who used Google Play to log in to PUBG won't be able to transfer their data.

Tip

If you're just getting started with the newly released game, here's how to download Battlegrounds Mobile India - via the Play Store, or by installing it manually, via APK/OBB files.

We’ll show you how to transfer PUBG Mobile data to Battlegrounds Mobile India in two different ways, as laid out just below. 

Option #1: Transfer Your PUBG Mobile Data via Battlegrounds Mobile’s Initial Setup

The newly released game understands the importance of using your old data, so you'll be given a chance to import it during the initial setup. So here's what you need to do.

1. First, create a new account the first time you launch Battlegrounds Mobile.

2. Allow the game to access your name, profile picture. Then, create your character.

3. Feel free to pick a new username – but know that you’ll get your old username soon.

4. Once you set up your account, a pop-up titled 'Account Data Transfer' will appear.

5. When asked whether you reside in India, tap on 'YES.'

6. Then, tap on 'Yes, Please Continue' when asked about importing PUBG Mobile data.

7. When asked about your consent to transfer your old data, select 'YES.'

8. Now, pick the social media network you’ve used for your old PUBG account.

9. Enter your old (PUBG Mobile) credentials.

10. Once again, give your consent, allowing Battlegrounds Mobile to transfer your data.

11. Finally, you’ll be taken to Battlegrounds Mobile India’s login screen. So, feel free to use your old credentials. After a couple of moments, you’ll get to pick up where you left off.

Option #2: Transfer Your PUBG Mobile Data via Battlegrounds Mobile’s Settings 

In case you were in a rush to try Battlegrounds Mobile India, and if you skipped its initial setup once asked about your old PUBG account, you still have a chance to fix that. That’s because you can transfer PUBG Mobile data to Battlegrounds Mobile India at any given moment, as explained below.

1. Launch Battlegrounds Mobile India. If asked to log in, make sure to do so.

2. At this moment, you should reach the game’s lobby screen.

3. Tap on the upwards arrow icon, visible in the bottom-right corner.

4. Then, select 'Settings.'

5. Under the 'Basic' section, tap on the button labeled 'Account Transfer.'

6. Now, check the guide we posted just above – as you’ll access that same data transfer guide (you’ll start from the sixth step, so navigate to that portion).

7. Once you transfer your data, log in using your old credentials. That’s it!

Those would be the two ways to transfer PUBG Mobile data to Battlegrounds Mobile India – and we hope you’ll manage to retrieve all your previous progress. In case of any issues or questions, let us know via the comments section below. Thanks for reading!
