Genshin Impact is a great RPG for Windows and mobile devices. However, there have been plenty of complaints issued against that game regarding account security.

Numerous players have posted on forums about Genshin Impact’s email not yet registered error.

How come the email not yet registered error arises?

The email not yet registered error arises for some players when they try to log in to their Genshin Impact accounts.

Players can’t log in to their accounts when that issue occurs. The error message means that the email address entered for the account is not recognized (registered).

In some cases, that error arises simply because the user hasn’t entered an email address correctly or because Mihoyo has terminated the account for some reason. However, it often means an account has been compromised (hacked) by somebody who has unlinked its email address.

Reports about compromised accounts users can’t log in to because of Genshin Impact’s email not yet registered error have not been uncommon. Players have been critical of the game’s account security shortcomings.

That was especially the case before Mihoyo added 2FA to the game in spring 2021.

What is 2FA?

2FA is the Two-Factor Authentication security method for accounts. It enables users to better secure their Genshin Impact accounts by establishing verification code login methods for other devices. Therefore, 2FA gives users a secondary way to verify themselves with codes.

Mihoyo has received some slack about delaying 2FA implementation for Genshin Impact until 2021. Although the game now has 2FA, players still need to enable that feature. Players can activate 2FA by linking mobile phone numbers and email addresses with Genshin Impact accounts.
