If you are a Xiaomi phone user or you have ever been one, you know what a Mi account is. For those who don’t know about it, it is an account which new Xiaomi phone users are obliged to open up whenever they buy a new device. Having a Mi account allows users to access various features like the Mi themes, Mi Cloud, Mi Store, Mi Community and much more.
