Chances are you’ve seen it. You launch a game and before you can start, up jumps a green screen from “game center” asking you to sign in or invite friends or some other game-center-type thing.
Let’s be clear, here. I have NEVER used Game Center. I don’t know exactly what it does. I don’t want to know. I just don’t want to see it pop up all the time. It is annoying.
Over time, I tried several things to make it go away, but nothing worked and I resigned myself to tap-tapping that nasty little screen with ‘no’s’ and ‘disables’ until it vanished ….but only temporarily. It is a determined little fellow and it always popped back.
Now I think I have found something that works. At least it works for me. Perhaps it is dependent on other settings, I just don’t know.
But for me, for now, I am delighted to say that I have NO MORE game center pop ups popping up. 🙂
I hope it works for others, although I certainly can’t guarantee it. I can only hope it works for you as it has completely eliminated the pop ups on my iPhone and iPad.
Here is how I disabled the game center pop-up:
Go to Settings.
Tap on General.
Look down to Restrictions.
Tap on Restrictions. You will be asked to enter a passcode. REMEMBER IT.
On the next screen, look all the way down at the bottom.
You’ll see a spot that says “game center” with two tabs that are set to “on”. Tap them, and turn them “off”.
Go back out of the settings.
Re-boot your phone.
Hopefully …… I can’t promise ……. but hopefully, you won’t be bothered by the pop-ups anymore. 🙂
