Genshin Impact has introduced 2FA or 2 Factor Authentication to add additional protection for player accounts. This is a much sought after feature for players who are concerned about losing their accounts, progress, and hacker characters.
Setting up 2FA is relatively easy and is highly recommended. It can be done on PC and Mobile, but is not available on PlayStation. This includes enhancing the security of your PlayStation account.
How to set up 2FA in Genshin Impact
Setting up 2FA in Genshin Impact is easy, just follow these steps:
- Go to your miYoHo account
- Log in to the account where you want to activate 2FA
- Go to the Account Management tab
- Enter the email address or mobile phone number for the account
Now, when you try to sign in, a separate code will be sent to the address or mobile phone number you assigned to your account. However, without the appropriate code, you will no longer be able to unlink your email address.
What is 2FA
Two-factor authentication is best understood as a backup six-digit password that will be randomly generated and sent to you when you try to sign in. If someone manages to get your password and email and log in pretending to be you, they will be asked for another code. This code will be sent to you in the way you choose. Without the code, the other person would not be able to prove that their login attempt was allowed, so they would not be able to do so.
