Hacking issues and security concerns were rampant amongst the Genshin community as many players reportedly lost their accounts on which they had spent real money, and as a result, two-factor authorization was one of the most requested features in the game.
On May 17, MiHiYo finally released an update that enables two-factor authorization across all user accounts. The new security measure is fairly simple as a verification code will be sent to the user’s email or phone via text when they log in, provided their accounts have already been linked in the past.
This ensures that the account’s owner is the one who has logged in and not an unauthorized person. Players who haven’t linked their accounts to their mobile phone number or email should do so immediately to increase their account’s security, as advised by MiHiYo.
Simply go to Genshin’s official website and then account management to link your mobile phone number and email to your account. Players can rest easy with this update as two-factor will greatly reduce any chances of their account being compromised.
This update was released just in time for Genshin’s Eula banner as players can grind for the 5-star Claymore user without any worries regarding their accounts.
