connecting to existing account without pincode
On Android I installed Ring 20180712, created an account (with a password), then removed Ring, and reinstalled (an older version).
Now I want to connect to the existing account, but for that it asks me to generate a PIN code on a device where this account is configured (that is what I understand, anyway). I had not generated a PIN code before removing Ring (and more than 10 minutes passed).
Does this mean that my account is inaccessible and the claimed username is forever unusable?
Or does it mean I misunderstand something? I just want to "log on".
