The players of the fantasy and action role-playing game Genshin Impact are amazed. For example, a faulty password recovery system in the video game, in which the players' personal data is stored, is said to have made the phone numbers of some players visible. According to Reddit contributions from the Genshin Impact Community, this problem has been known since October 2020 and has been reported to the developer miHoYo.

Genshin Impact is an open-world fantasy and action role-playing game reminiscent of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The video game comes from the Chinese development team of miHoYo and was released worldwide on September 28, 2020. Only a short time after its release, Genshin Impact became a popular game and still enjoys a high number of players today.

Genshin Impact - Password recovery data leak?

The more recent contributions by some Reddit users to the Genshin Impact Community caused astonishment. An error in password recovery is said to have led to the leak of the phone numbers of some players. An affected player on Subreddit described that during the password recovery process an uncensored email was sent by miHoYo containing the player's phone number. However, according to the user, a mobile phone number would have to be linked to the player account beforehand. If this had not been the case, the personal data would still have remained hidden from the password query.

Another player reported in a VICE interview that he had entered a few random subreddit usernames into the game's password recovery mask as a test and that the phone numbers of the players had become apparent. MiHoYo has not yet commented publicly on the alleged data leak. However, according to the Reddit player community, the problem seems to have been resolved at this point.
