Mi, one of the best-selling smartphone makers from China, has come up with a lot of amazing
features in their smartphones as well as security features. Most of the people who purchase Mi
phone don’t even know about the Mi account and its security features or how to create Mi account.
Some of the people create the account accidentally and therefore don’t even remember the password
which leads to the lockdown of the smartphone after the factory reset. Once, the device is locked they
feel a lot of difficulty in restoring the device. Those who know a little try different approaches
themselves and make the condition even worse. But most of them have to go to the Mi service
centre and sit and wait for hours to get it fixed.
However, those who are a little techie, they know what to do. They download the Mi account unlocktool and then bypass the account.
This can be difficult for many people who are not a techie and do not know anything about these
things. But, I think if you know why you have to create a Mi account and what are the benefits of it,
then I am certain that none of you will forget the password and fall for these types of problems.
So, before going in-depth of the topic, let us understand the benefits of the Mi account.
Why is it necessary to create Mi account?
When Mi came into the smartphone market, the company came up with unlocked bootloader. The
unlocking of bootloader allows people to flash their devices with any custom ROM. This makes any
smartphone vulnerable to hackers.
To eliminate the risk of smartphone getting hacked, MI came up with a security feature Mi cloud
account. The company also locked the bootloader but a person who wants to unlock the bootloader
can ask Xiaomi for it and they unlock the device making the warranty void.
The Mi cloud account provides you with the facility to back up all the phone data into the cloud server. Apart
from this, you would have access to other features like Phone finder, sync of videos, Pictures, audios
etc. You can even remotely lock your phone and delete all the data from the phone if your phone
So, all your data remains safe in good hand. You also get access to mi store from where you can buy
all Mi products and even pre-book upcoming gadgets.

- The PIN that will come to your phone number will be of 4 digits.

Now you will have to fill your personal details like Name, email etc. Put your Email Id and connect
that to your account so that you can log in with any of the details either Email or Mobile number.
Since you have created the Mi account, you can easily log in to Mi cloud account with the same
details that you use to login Mi account. Go to https://i.mi.com/ and enter your Mi account
username and password and press enter.
Now, you will have to verify your phone number for this a verification code will come to your phone
and you will have to enter in the box and then click on the confirm button. This is a two-step
verification method which makes Mi sure that the same person has logged in to the Mi account.
If you keep logging in to your Mi account frequently through a single desktop or laptop, Xiaomi will
ask to select “This is my personal device..”. Once you save this you won’t have to enter the
verification code again and again as Xiaomi will treat that device as the Trusted one.
However, you keep on getting messages from Mi and you have to frequently keep on travelling
abroad then you can use the Mi Authenticator App for the verification codes. This App generates
codes instantly and you don’t have to worry about getting verification codes on your mobile phone.
