Based on the feedback / questions regarding Genshin Impact Account Security, these are the top / most important / most frequent asked questions.
These answers are being provided by miHoYo directly (and they are responsible for any statement). The answers are being shared here as these are.
Q1: How can I log in to the game if my linked email address or mobile number is unable to receive a verification code?
1. Following the activation of the new function, Travelers with a previously linked and still usable email address but who are unable to receive verification codes can log in to their miHoYo Account and change their linked mobile number or email address under Account Management.
2. If the email address or mobile number in question is no longer valid, please contact customer service via the in-game Feedback function or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org to have your linked email address or mobile number changed. (This process may take up to a week.)
Q2: Is it possible to toggle the function via miHoYo Account > Account Management > Login Devices?
A2: The ability to activate and deactive security verification for new devices is one of multiple changes that will be introduced in due course. We will be sure to keep Travelers informed of any developments.
Q3: I’ve always logged in to the game on both mobile and PC. How does the system decide whether a device is a “new device”?
A3: The first device that you use to log in to the game after the launch of the verification function on May 17, 18:00 (UTC+8) does not require a verification code. Subsequent devices are treated as new devices and will therefore require a verification code.
Travelers that encounter the issue of needing a verification code for their first device can log in to their miHoYo Account and go to Account Management to check their linked devices.
Q4: It’s a hassle to have to enter a verification code every time I log in to the game.
A4: After using a verification code to log in to the game on a new device for the first time, that device will no longer require a code to log in to the game.
Q5: My account doesn’t have a linked email address, how do I receive a verification code?
A5: Accounts without a linked email address do not currently have access to the new device verification function.
Q6: I can’t log in to the game and am constantly being asked for a verification code. How can I manage my devices?
A6: Travelers can log in to their miHoYo Account and go to Account Management > Login Devices to view and delete devices. After deleting a device, a verification code will be required the next time that you log in to the game on that device.
