Fortnite two-factor authentication doesn’t sound exciting but it protects your account from hackers and takes seconds to set up. Fortnite 2FA only takes a few clicks but provides an extra layer of security that means it’s much harder for malicious login attempts to steal your account, and all your hard earned rewards.
And there’s free stuff too! For setting up Fortnite two-factor authentication Epic will give you the Boogie Down emote for nothing in battle royale. While Save the World players will get 50 armory slots, 10 backpack slots and one Legendary Troll Stash Llama. All for signing up for Fortnite 2FA.
Using Fortnite two-factor authentication to protect your Fortnite account is really easy as all you have to do is turn it on. Once that’s done you’ll be sent a confirmation code to a device of your choice whenever you login. As that code is only sent to you it prevents anyone else from logging in by cracking your password. Your account is protected and you can sleep easy at night knowing no one can get at your stuff.
Here’s how to enable Fortnite two-factor authentication and let Fortnite 2FA protect all your stuff.
What is Fortnite 2FA?
Two factor authentication – 2FA for short – is essentially a way of keeping your Fortnite account more secure. Since Fortnite is so popular, there’s always people trying to hack your account and gain access to your favourite skins, so enabling 2FA is absolutely mandatory for stopping unwanted intruders.
The way it works is by making it so whenever you (or someone else) tries to access your Fortnite account from a new machine, you will need to prove its legitimate by inputting a code. This can either be emailed to you or provided via an authenticator app – the preference is yours – and while it can be annoying if you have to do it frequently, it means your account will be completely secure. As long as you don’t give anyone the unique 2FA code, of course.
How to enable 2FA on Fortnite
To enable 2FA on your Fortnite account, simply head to Fortnite.com/2FA. Log in to your Epic Games account and underneath the option to change your password, you should see the option to enable either email 2FA or authenticator app 2FA. Pick your preferred option and follow the instructions on screen to enable Fortnite 2FA.
How to get the Boogie Down emote through Fortnite 2FA
Enabling 2FA on your account will get you the Fortnite Boogie Down emote, which has been available for a few months now – next time you log in, you should receive your reward. So if you haven’t got Fortnite 2FA yet, voila – you have a brand new dance to use in-game!
