Seeing your account hacked is never nice, but in some games – like Genshin Impact – there is a risk of losing access to a whole host of content on which you have not only spent time, but also money. Fortunately, miHoYo has finally decided to introduce a two-factor authentication system, an increasingly standard measure to defend against hackers.
The two-factor authentication system in fact sends a temporary security code to the email address or telephone number linked to the service / game account. This way a hacker cannot simply steal the game ID and password to access Genshin Impact.
If you have linked an email address to your Genshin Impact account, two-factor authentication will be activated automatically. If you want to add a phone number or change your email address, of course you can. You just need to access the game’s website at this address.
