Two-factor authentication (2FA) and how to enable it
Why is it important to enable 2FA?
We highly recommend enabling two-factor authentication (2FA) for the following reasons:
Security! 2FA increases the security of your account. Even if somebody guesses your password, they won’t be able to access your account.
Free games! 2FA is required to claim some free games on the Epic Games Store.
Gifting! 2FA is required to send gifts in Fortnite.
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 here. For more information about what you can do to secure your account, please see our Account Security News post.
