We highly recommend enabling two-factor authentication (2FA) for the following
Security! 2FA increases the security of your account.
Even if somebody guesses your password, they won’t be able to access
Free games! 2FA is required to claim some free games
on the Epic Games Store.
Gifting! 2FA is required to send and receive gifts in
Fortnite. Both the sender and the receiver must have 2FA enabled.
Competing in Fortnite! 2FA is required for
participation in Fortnite competitive events such as the Fortnite World Cup!
Since your account security is a priority for us, we also give players
rewards for enabling 2FA. You can check them out
