Two-factor authentication(2FA) allows Fortnite players to add an extra layer of protection to their accounts. Enabling this feature will instantly unlock a new dance emote and the players who have purchased Save the World in the past will receive even more gifts. Signing in to Fortnite with 2FA requires a special code in addition to the password. Players can choose to get the special code via email or a separate authentication app.
HOW TO ENABLE 2FA SIGN IN?
- Go to Epic Games official website and log into your account.
- Open Account Settings from the top right menu in the corner.
- Select Password and Security.
- At the bottom click on Enable Two-Factor Sign In button.
WHAT DOES 2FA SIGN IN DO?
Whenever you log into your account in a different device, you will get a unique code which you have to enter before you are allowed to have access to your account. This feature helps a lot if somebody finds out what your password is through a malware that could be inside your files from something that you have downloaded.
Once you enable this feature you will get free rewards as we mentioned above. If you don’t own the Fortnite: Save the World, you will just get this dance emote below.
Those who purchased the game mode will also receive 50 armory slots, 10 backpack slots, and a legendary troll stash Llama for enabling two-factor authentication. While pulling up your 2FA code in every 30 days might take an extra minute, 2FA will add a big boost in security to your Epic Games account.
