Enabling Two-Factor Authentication for any service is a must, but for very popular games like Fortnite – it’s even more important; allowing you to protect your account & v-bucks from hackers. Here’s how to do it:
1. Account Settings > click on Password & Security to access Fortnites’ security settings
2. At the bottom, Two-Factor Authentication > Enable Authenticator App or Enable Email Authentication as your two-factor method
Fortnite currently works with the following Authenticator apps
- Google Authenticator
- LastPass Authenticator
- Microsoft Authenticator
Apparently, Epic Games rewards players who are savvy enough to secure their account with an exclusive Boogiedown emote in Battle Royale, 50 Armory Slots, 10 Backpack Slots & one legendary troll stash llama for Save the World. Well worth being security minded.
