Game Developer miHoYo has finally implemented the Two-factor authentication (2FA) on Genshin Impact.
In the last couple of years, there have been a plethora of cases where players have reportedly lost their gaming accounts across Steam, Blizzard, and various other platforms.
Back in November 2020, a similar mishap within MiHoYo where multiple contact details, those of players were compromised by a security breach. This was indeed followed by yet another data leak later in December, endangering the fate of their Email IDs.
Soon, the issue was reported by the player base and too by a plethora of content creators where some of them were unable to retrieve back their accounts despite the fact of already having made some expensive in-game purchases. These issues have finally been addressed by miHoYo and a security fix has been deployed in the game.
Players enabling 2FA must have access to the Email Address associated with their Genshin Impact account.
Upon logging in from a new device, the game will now prompt the players to enter a code, which would be sent to their credentials once a login request is made. This layer of protection will be made as a default way to sign in once the update is shipped into the game by miHoYo.
