As per the latest report by IDC, Xiaomi is the No.1 brand in India & almost everyone who has a Xiaomi device has a Mi Account. So, it becomes very much necessary to ensure better security of the Mi Accounts. According to reports, Xiaomi is all set to unveil the next version of MIUI i..e., MIUI 11 & it could launch in September. But, this two-factor authentication feature will start rolling off in MIUI 10, so that’s a good thing.

This feature will automatically send a notification to an already logged-in device. There you’ll have an option to deny the log-in attempt. The new two-factor authentication will protect your data in Mi-cloud as well, where Xiaomi has stored all the data and backups. It includes all your contacts, call recordings, photos etc.
