I purchased the game but get a Google Play validation error, what is this?
When receiving this message, it is recommend that you turn your device off and on again, and check that it is connected to the internet, and then run the application again.
Games listed on Google Play for sale use the official Google licensing system. The licensing system validates that your Google account has purchased the application that you are trying to run, and there can be different reasons for receiving this message:
- Google Licensing servers could be experiencing a problem. In this situation, you may receive this message temporarily even when connected to the internet. In this case, try again later.
- You are currently logged in to Google Play with a different user account than the one you originally purchased the game with. To validate this, locate the receipt e-mail from your purchase, and confirm that the Google e-mail address used is the same as registered in your phone settings, in the accounts section.
- The Google user account set as primary on your device differs from the one you used to purchase with. To validate this, locate the receipt e-mail from your purchase, and confirm that the Google e-mail address used is the same as registered in your phone settings, in the accounts section.
- Your device is not currently connected to the internet. The first time the application runs after being installed, it requires an internet connection to be able to reach the Google licensing servers to confirm your purchase. If you are currently not connected, you will have to try again when connected.
- There can be a problem with the data stored in the Google Play Store application. This could contain incorrect data about your Google account and device. To clear the data of the application, open "Settings" on your device, select "Application Manager" (or "Apps") and click on the "Google Play Store" application. On this page, click the "Clear data" button - notice that there is a "Clear cache" button as well, making it easy to click the wrong button, therefore notice that it is the "Clear data" button you must click.
