Knowing how to enable Fortnite 2fa and use Fortnite two factor authentication to protect you account only gets more important the longer you play. Just imagine, after all these seasons, turning your game on to see you’ve been hacked and lost your account.
That’s where Fortnite 2fa comes in, with two factor authentication adding an extra layer of protection between you and hackers that might try to steal your account. All those umbrellas you’ve earned, emotes, skins and all the rest you’ve unlocked and paid for will be safe behind an extra protective wall online. It works by sending you a code when you log in that you have to enter before you can proceed – no code, no access to your account. And because you set where the code get sent, hackers won’t be able to get near it – even if they crack your password they won’t get sent the 2fa code so they won’t get any further.
Not only will you protect everything but you’ll get free stuff as well, with Epic handing out the Boogie Down emote for setting two factor authentication in Battle Royale. While if you’re playing Save the World you’ll get 50 armory slots, 10 backpack slots and one Legendary Troll Stash Llama.
Using Fortnite two-factor authentication to protect your Fortnite account is really easy so here’s how to enable Fortnite 2FA and protect all your stuff.
What is Fortnite 2FA?
Two factor authentication – 2FA for short – is essentially a way of keeping your Fortnite account more secure. Since Fortnite is so popular, there’s always people trying to hack your account and gain access to your favourite skins, so enabling 2FA is absolutely mandatory for stopping unwanted intruders.
The way it works is by making it so whenever you (or someone else) tries to access your Fortnite account from a new machine, you will need to prove its legitimate by inputting a code. This can either be emailed to you or provided via an authenticator app – the preference is yours – and while it can be annoying if you have to do it frequently, it means your account will be completely secure. As long as you don’t give anyone the unique 2FA code, of course.
How to enable 2FA on Fortnite
To enable 2FA on your Fortnite account, simply head to Fortnite.com/2FA. Log in to your Epic Games account and underneath the option to change your password, you should see the option to enable either email 2FA or authenticator app 2FA. Pick your preferred option and follow the instructions on screen to enable Fortnite 2FA.
How to get the Boogie Down emote through Fortnite 2FA
Enabling 2FA on your account will get you the Fortnite Boogie Down emote, which has been available for a few months now – next time you log in, you should receive your reward. So if you haven’t got Fortnite 2FA yet, voila – you have a brand new dance to use in-game!
