I have 2 factor authentication enabled on my account. When the game launches, it asks to login with my epic games account.

When I try to login, it just gives me an error messages that says, error message, cannot login, requires 2 factor authentication. It sucks because I can login on the website and use the 2 factor authentication.

Also, if I turn off 2 factor auth, I can log in to the game, but then when I turn it off again, I get another error message that says something about cannot sync game with MCT. I don't know if this is related ?

Any advise ?
