Multiple Profiles

HI There, I have a question regarding WhisperSync and GC. Im currently testing multiple profiles on the same device and the same game. Profile A logs in, unlocks 10 achievements. Then logs out. Profile B logs in for the first time, and the same 10 achievements are already unlocked having never played the game before. Is this working as intended? Thanks!

In the context of GameCircle users here is the logic: If a Player A has unlocked achievements on a device, they will continue to be unlocked on that device even if Player B logs in. However, Player B will not have those achievements submitted to their account. So if Player B has not already unlocked those achievements and then they log into another device, they will not see those achievements unlocked. We always opt to keep the device data - over a user's data. The idea is that it would be far worse to lose progress by swapping users. There is another scenario that should be kept in mind. Anytime achievements or scores are earned in Guest mode, the next user to log in will get those achievements and scores. Let's say Player A unlocks achievements 1-5, then logs out and continues to play as guest unlocking achievements 6-10. If Player B then logs in they will get achievements 6-10 submitted for their account.
