    How about Soda, Jelly and Friends? I have accidentally clicked "Play On" and it is no way getting them back.

    Hi @Spieler_8675309 and @Nathaliew1990

    I 100% agree with this idea. I don’t know how many times I accidentally hit play on and spent gold bars that was really hard to get and still didn’t pass the level. It really makes me mad and there’s nothing I can do. 😡

    It needs to be implemented in all the Candy Crush games. 👍

    Thanks @Diamond Lim for tagging me. 💕

    I agree with this. One day as I was falling asleep, my hand cashed in gold bars accidentally. What a foolish thing I did!

  • dpessahdpessah Posts: 7 Level 2

    Totally agree. Happened to me several times that I accidentally pressed the button and used 10 bars

    Yes! I voted ✔️ as I have before. I too have wasted some gold by playing when I should have been in bed.💤 Nothing wakes you up faster when you realize what you just did when you didn't mean to.

    As of now I still play on my phone and my kitty 🐈 has also spent some gold when she hops on my lap and her foot 🐾just happens to hit the use gold for moves. So yes, I do wish there was a confirm ⏺️ button that you do want to take this action🔸

    Thanks @DiamondLim 💎

    Agree with the confirmation before spending gold bars...I struggle with saving bars too.

  • jdscerbojdscerbo Posts: 6 Level 2

    Yes! Fix this already. Poor user experience

  • laleylaley Posts: 587 Level 4

    This is a great idea especially when it comes to purchasing unlimited lives for 69 gold bars, I have purchased that (by mistake) several times....that should really have a confirmation option.


    Neutral support. Getting gold bars is considerably easier than in the heyday, though the amount is still meager. Gold should be used to buy extra moves, as other boosters are much easier to come by with the exception of more powerful ones like the UFO.

    We need a confirm button for gold bar use. (or any booster use, actually!) How hard can it be to develop one, really???

    Since you conveniently and intentionally put the gold bar play ahead button so close to the quit button, I can't tell you how many times I accidentally hit it! I see other players have mentioned this as well. It's a sneaky tricky on your part, King! Players are tired of this!

    Also, another problem is accidentally going into the wrong level and not being able to back out without losing a life. If we already passed the level, we should be able to back out without penalty.

    Fix these issues, please!!!

    Just happened again to day. My arm jerked and the play on was hit by accident. It takes so long to accumulate gold bars and there went 10 in an accidental instant.

    Absolutely need a confirm button! And the ability to back out of a level already played without losing a life. Button placenent is one of the intentional and sneaky game tactics by developers who want us to fail, so we might buy what we need, in our frustrations.

    Not getting enough votes on a popular idea?It's a problem with this site where ideas get lost in the shuffle with all the tagging, quoting, symbols, and repetitive postings. We just need a straight up vote and then place for comments, if people have things to add. Also, the site makers have to come up with a better way to cross reference ideas that are the same, bundle them together, so we can find them quickly and easily and not have to muddle thru the extra, unwanted garbage.

  • B-2B-2 Posts: 56 Level 3

    Too close. Easy to make mistakes! A confirm button would help!

    Yes, this is a HUGE problem, and King should fix it ASAP!! This has now happened to me 3 times, and I don't know why! After losing lives it's AUTOMATICALLY contacting the server to buy unlimited lives for 69 Gold bars! I am absolutely NOT clicking the button to buy them! I only play late at night for an hour or so before I go to bed, so 6 hours of lives is completely useless to me. Furthermore, I've contacted King Support about this days ago, and they still have not gotten back to me. I asked for this feature to be BLOCKED on my account. I would NEVER, EVER, EVER spend 69 Gold bars on extra lives. I save them to use for extra moves to finish levels, and that's the ONLY thing I will ever use them for. This is really horrible and I don't know how to stop it!
