      Check to see if there’s an updated version, update it and the problems should be fixed. In my case I barely have storage so I had to uninstall the app and reinstalled the new updated version

      If you remember your old acct stuff then you’re able to add an account by going to the settings and scroll all the way down and press «Add Account» from there you can add your old acct and possibly delete the new one you created.
