And? Who cares as long as the data comes in? I'm totally fine with people cheating. All I care about is that the road map that I'm using has the best possible data. If someone is so desperate to get a gold whatchamacallit that they cheat, I couldn't possibly care less...

And:
Wouldn't the right measure to only count points from one of the clients then, if it's actually a problem?
That seems trivial enough.

Ah, feel free to link the threads. On a brief search I found no explanation to the reasons behind it.

I've often run into this problem, trying to use two devices at the same time (usually when the good-screen-one requires a restart).

Right now it keeps complaining that I'm already logged in, blocking the screen and being rather obnoxiously distracting.

I'm not sure why.

You can install on more than one device but if you try and use both at the same time Waze will treat it as suspicious and at best your experience will be significantly below par!

As far as I remember when I was opening waze on second device with the same login it was simply not logging in and connected as anonymous. iOS 5.

People cheat to rack up large amounts of points and gain editing area access and then decimate the map. ALL OF YOU should definitely care about cheating.

It is a measure against cheating. By driving with more than one Wazeclient assigned to the same account you could otherwise rack up more points.

In other words - no problem, as long as you and your brother do not try to drive with Waze enabled at the same time. Alternatively you could request to become areamanager for that plot or try to turn your brother into an editor.

Quick question: what happens if i install waze and use the same account on two different devices?

I ask because i want to edit a small city were i lived my entire life (moved away last year) and there are lots of wrong informations (a quick count showed more than 15) that i would like to correct.

Can i ask my brother to drive around with my waze account so i can edit the city?
