Fortnite 2FA – How to enable and get Two Factor Authentication on Fortnite & Reward

-

2FA is an option for your Fortnite account to help secure it. It’s also needed for gifting and other features. Here’s how to enable two factor authentication on Fortnite.

Epic Games added 2FA in Fortnite more than a year ago in order to combat all the accounts that were getting hacked. Hackers would obtain accounts through keylogging, phishing and others methods in order to sell the accounts.

Epic decided to add two factor authentication in Fortnite, and also added a free emote to reward players that enabled 2FA on their Fortnite account. The reward is the Boogie down emote.

The first option you’ll see is to change your password, the Two-Factor Authentication options will be below that.

You can either choose to have the authentication code sent via an app such as Authy, or you can have the email sent to your email address. Either way, click enable on one of the Fortnite 2FA options.

Follow the steps to enable 2FA on your Fortnite account. When you next login to your account, you’ll receive a security code. You’ll also get the Boogie down emote for enabling 2FA on your account.
