Genshin Impact has finally added 2FA (Two-Factor Authentication) to the game, enabling players to safely secure their accounts. Here’s how you can enable 2FA and keep any unwanted devices from accessing your account. 

Ever since Genshin Impact released, players have urged miHoYo to add 2FA (Two-Factor Authentication) to the game. Previously, hackers had been able to access players’ accounts via phishing scams and leaked email addresses. Not only do these shady methods stop innocent players from accessing their accounts, but they also make it extremely hard for those affected to get their accounts back. 

This is particularly concerning, given how expensive Genshin Impact’s Wish system can be. In fact, it’s not unheard of for players to spend hundreds, even thousands of pounds on Primogems in order to get Five-star characters like Eula. As a result, many fans have been fearful of their accounts getting hacked. Fortunately, miHoYo has finally released an update that enables the use of 2FA in Genshin Impact.

What is 2FA (Two-Factor Authentication) in Genshin Impact?

Genshin Impact’s 2FA helps to keep your account safe from hackers.

Two-Factor Authentication is a security method that allows users to access their account using another device as a login method. For example, if you log into your Genshin Impact on a new device that isn’t recognized, you’ll be sent a notification to your mobile or email account. 

This will provide you with a code you need to enter before you log into your account. Essentially, this stops hackers from accessing your account even if they have your email and password details.
