Two-factor-authentication or 2fa for short is another way to add a security layer to your accounts. It has a wide range of use from finance companies to video games to social media platforms. What it does is that whenever you log in to your account, it asks you to verify who you are by sending a code to the method you’ve chosen. It can be either done via an authenticator app such as Google Authenticator or through an e-mail.
Epic Games uses 2fa to ensure the accounts of their player’s safety but this is done at a smaller scale. If you’re wondering how to enable 2fa on your Fortnite account, here is how.
Enabling 2FA on your Epic Games account is easier than you think and unlike other platforms who uses the same thing, Fortnite will ask you to verify only when you’re logging in from a new device or after not being logged in for 30 days. First off get to epicgames.com/2fa page after logging in to your account and choose the verification method. As mentioned above, there are two ways to do it. You can either do it via your registered e-mail or by using an authenticator app such as
- Google Authenticator
- LastPass Authenticator
- Microsoft Authenticator
Once you’re done with this you will be asked to verify yourself whenever you’re about to play on a new device or after making your return to the game.
