Quit button
Quit game description

The Quit Button is a fundamental element in Candy Crush Saga. This button is used if a player wants to leave a level without finishing it immediately.

The quit button received considerable attention in September 2018 after an adverse change to the feature, that HTML5 players can no longer restart a level without losing a life, even if no moves had been made.

Web version[]

If a player presses this button at any time once you enter the level, he/she will lose a life automatically.

The player can no longer pause a timed level on the web version by using the quit button because time still counts down even while the quit button popup is shown.

Mobile version[]

You pressed the quit button! Play on now!

Starting June 28, 2017, if a player enters a non-timed level, he/she may press this button without losing a life, provided that he/she does not make any moves. This becomes very useful in many hard levels or levels where it is all about the quality of the initial board.

Starting in September 2018, the player can no longer press this button without losing a life. Timed levels were removed from the game earlier that year.


  • There is a slight glitch when pressing the quit button while a candy bomb count reaches zero. It will show the bomb exploding even though the player pressed the button before all the candies stopped destroying.
  • The game messaged "You pressed the quit button!" will overwrite any other messages of losing.
  • As of Android 4.4 KitKat, the notification bar is now shown when the quit button is pressed. This was previously available for Samsung Galaxy devices. It is useful if the player needs to check what time it is now or if he/she needs to charge his/her device.
