Right now I have set the authentication to be LoginManager.LOGIN_MODE_EMAIL_ONLY.

User is prompted to enter HockeyApp email if they uninstall and re-install the same app. Is it possible to prompt them to enter email only when they upgrade to another version?

    Hi Margaret,

    This is not a supported scenario by default, but our SDK is open source. We use SharedPreferences to save the users login address. When you uninstall the app these preferences are lost, you would need your own backup helper to preserve this data. Additionally you would need to edit/use our update check source code to look for new versions, then skip or present login activity.
