How do I protect accidental shutdown of my linode instance.

I am new to linode UI Coming from aws background, I would like to know if there exists such thing as ENABLE SHUTODOWN/TERMINATION PROTECTION ??

I am looking equivalent to this from aws:

Any one know about this ?? I want to provision my linode instance using terraform and want to be 100% confident that I am not messing up with my other production services.
