Xiaomi is now more concerned about the security of Mi accounts & that’s why it is finally adding two-factor authentication for Mi accounts. According to a report by XDA, the two-factor authentication feature will instantly notify you on your device when you attempt a new log-in on other device or from a new location which is not registered in your Mi account.
You’ll be able to log-in on a new device by two methods, either you can tap on the notification that you receive on your primary device, or you have to enter the special access code in your new device to log-in.
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.
