Fortnite 2fa simply adds a layer of security on top of your existing password and makes your account more secure. It is something that Epic Games is heavily promoting after the Fortnite player base is increasingly growing larger and larger. When you have more than 10 million players logging in to their accounts, it’s a responsibility for any video game company to make the accounts secure. Since Epic can not handle every account directly on a one to one basis, 2fa is a good option for both the company and its Fortnite players.
In most platforms, 2fa is used every time a user logs in but it’s a little bit different in Fortnite Battle Royale. Epic Games will only ask for you to verify yourself through the 2fa method you’ve chosen, which we will get in a bit, after not being logged in to your account for more than 30 days or after logging in a new device.
How to Enable 2fa?
First and foremost, make sure that you’ve confirmed your e-mail address on your Epic Games account and do the following steps.
- Log in to your Epic Games account.
- Get to Security & Password settings.
- Scroll down and choose your preferred 2fa method.
- It can either be done via an e-mail or by using an Authenticator App such as Google Authenticator, LastPass Authenticator, Microsoft Authenticator or Authy.
- After successfully enabling 2fa, open up Epic Games Launcher and log in to your account.
From there are on, you can enjoy having the extra security on your Fortnite account! Even if someone steals your password, they won’t be able to log into your account since they will be asked for the 2fa code which won’t be received by them.
