Knowing how to set up Fortnite 2FA is important. Fortnite two-factor authentication will protect your account and get you some free gear, which isn't a bad deal for a few seconds work. 

Two-factor authentication in Fortnite is an extra layer of security to your login that makes it harder for hackers to get into your account. It works by sending a confirmation code to a device of your choice whenever you login - as unwanted logins won't get the code, it's harder for people to get access to all your stuff. 

In fact Epic think it's such a good idea it'll give you free stuff for setting it up. For Battle Royale you'll get the the Boogie Down emote, while if Save the World if your thing you'll 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 so here's how to enable Fortnite 2FA and protect all your stuff.

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 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.
