      Thanks for writing here. When you save your contacts in Mi account then you can access your contacts anytime from anywhere. Suppose Your Xiaomi phone accidently damaged and won’t turn ON. in this case, you lost your important contacts. If you buy new Mi Phone then no need to copy your old contacts to new Mi phone. just login in Mi account in your new phone. and it automatically manages all things like contacts, photos,notes etc.
      It also helps if you lost your Mi phone.
      Hope it helps.

  2. i formatted my red mi 2… now it is showing that the device is looked and showing 157****765.
    i m forgeted my redmi id and password plz help

      1. I bought new redmi note 3 today.i got an update for it .after i updated it it asked me to reboot .then after switching it on it asks me pasword for activation.i dint even create an mi account .
        Now i dont know the password and id how to unlock my mobile?pls help

        1. Hi Akash,
          Sorry for the inconvenience you faced. Mi Account is mandatory in MIUI ROM for various Xiaomi services.
          If you don’t have mi account then create Mi account via following above article. After that enter your Mi account details on your Phone.

          1. I have the same problem, I got a New MI note 3,it showed that there is an update, so i updated.
            After the reboot,it asks for password activation of an mi account, when i clearly havent created one yet for my mobile.

          2. I tried using registered mobile number , but it is showing massage as you have exceeded allowed attempts in 24 hours. It has been three days now even after that when I try to recover password by clicking on forgot password it takes me to same massage as you have exceeded maximum numbers of allowed attempts. MI must resolve such problems. It not affordable for people to go to service center for such petty things. MI should make some provision where people can get access to their own mobile phones only if they have original INVOICE and IMEI number of associated mobile. This will decrease inconvinience caused due to less number of service centers available and it will also decrease unnecessary rush at service centers. I hope MI will do something about that.

    1. Hi Lasantha,
      Please once login into your mi account in another laptop or device to ensure that your mi account is working. After that confirm Mi account id which is stored in your device and your actual mi account is same. If the Mi account id same then please ensure you enable the data access permission to all basic android services and Mi account app.
      If all things are right, and you still unable to login into your account. then Wipe reset is last option. But before reset please ensure all above things. you can contact us via following link for further instructions.
