Epic Games - Safety and Security

When you’re playing Epic Games titles or using our services we want you to have fun. We believe that part of that is staying safe and ensuring you have a secure account. Below you’ll find a few ways you can increase security on your account as well as a few tools you can use to help you stay safe when gaming. If there are any other features you’d like to see, let us know!

  1. Two-Factor Authentication

    We want you to keep your password safe and prevent your account from being compromised. We’ve implemented 2-factor authentication (also known as 2-step verification) to help you prevent unauthorized account access. Follow these instructions to turn on 2FA.

  2. Parental Controls

    You can read all the details about our Fortnite parental controls here. Fortnite offers a range of parental controls to help you manage what a player can see and do within the Fortnite game. In addition to the controls within Fortnite, you can set rules for what features a player can access on consoles, handhelds, phones, and computers. Nintendo Switch™, PlayStationⓇ 4, Xbox OneⓇ, WindowsⓇ 10, and iOS all provide guides on how to activate parental controls.

  3. Voice Chat Controls

    Voice chat allows you to speak to other players in Fortnite. Voice chat is enabled by default. If you don’t want other players to be able to chat with you, you can learn how to disable voice chat or temporarily mute yourself here.

  4. Lobby Controls

    You can control your voice chat and party settings right from the Fortnite lobby. Learn more about your lobby settings here.

  5. Party Hub Controls

    Party Hub lets you party up with your friends and voice chat before you jump into Fortnite. In Party Hub, you can decide if your party is open for your friends and their friends to join, or you can lock your party so that no one can join without being invited. Learn about your Party Hub controls here.

  6. Reporting Bad Behavior

    It’s important that Fortnite players have a fun and friendly community to play with, so we take bad behavior seriously. All our community policies are in our Code of Conduct. If you see someone breaking our Code of Conduct or behaving badly, you can learn how to report someone in Fortnite here.

You can also send in general feedback in-game, read more about your options here. We’d love to hear from you if you feel there’s something we can do to help make the Fortnite community more friendly and fun!
