What does multiple connections mean?Only one penguin account can be logged on one computer at a time.

I am having issues connecting to the game or seeing new updates?This is most likely due to your browser's cache. When we upload new updates onto the games servers, large amounts of data are transferred from our servers to your computer, and sometimes the cache will not update automatically and your computer may not update. When you log onto CPA, the game stores cache files into your browser so that data is saved and you can come back to it at any time, continuing from where you left off. Sometimes, when we release big updates, your cache may not be able to handle the size of the data being transferred from our server. This means that you need to clear your cache. In order to do this, please follow this link and follow the appropriate pages for your operating system and browser. If you can still not connect to the game after following these steps, or new updates are not showing, please contact the Support team using the options listed above.
The game won't load for me? How can i fix this?If you are having issues loading the game, it is most likely due to the fact that your internet service provider has blocked the ports that the game run off of. A few months ago we changed our ports and added extra security to protect the game from bots and harmful attacks. The issue is that some ISP's do not accept the port we are using (although it is very secure so we will not change it). Some users do not have this issue as it is not all ISP's that block the ports, only a few (most common in the United States). If you are experiencing this issue, go to the chrome store (if on chrome) and download this free VPN (Called hoxx, it is unlimited and used by hundreds of thousands of people), set the location to one of your personal preference and reload the game, it should now load and be a lot faster. Please note that this method works will all VPN's, we are simply giving you a free option that has unlimited usage and is safe. Another way to get the game to load is change the WIFI that you are connected to, try a friend, a neighbours or even a phone hotspot; it should work after you have done this. Ifc you are still experiencing issues after trying all of the steps above, please get in contact with our Support team and we would be more than happy to help you get back online!
