Fortnite: Protect your Account! Enable 2FA (Get Free Emote!)

PROTECT YOUR ACCOUNT! ENABLE 2FA

8.23.2018

By The Fortnite Team

Your account security is our top priority! Protect your account by enabling 2FA. As a reward for protecting your account, you’ll unlock the Boogiedown Emote in Fortnite Battle Royale.

TWO-FACTOR AUTHENTICATION (2FA)

Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) can be used to help protect your account from unauthorized access by requiring you to enter an additional code when you sign in. The Two-Factor Authentication feature currently supports the use of an authenticator app or an email address authentication method.

Once you’ve opted into Two-Factor Authentication, you will be asked to enter the code from your preferred two-factor authentication method, then you will be signed into your account.  You will be prompted for the two-factor passcode the first time you sign in after enabling the feature, if you use a new device, if it’s been over 30 days since you last signed in or if you’ve cleared your browser cookies recently.

GET STARTED HERE

To opt into Two-Factor Authentication:

  1. In your ACCOUNT Settings, click on the PASSWORD & SECURITY tab to view your security settings.
  2. At the bottom of the page, under the TWO-FACTOR AUTHENTICATION heading, click to ENABLE AUTHENTICATOR APP or ENABLE EMAIL AUTHENTICATION as your two-factor method.

If you prefer to use an authenticator app for two-step verification, here are a few common authenticator apps that can be found in your mobile device app store:

  • Google Authenticator
  • LastPass Authenticator
  • Microsoft Authenticator
  • Authy

Keep your account safe and remember, Epic employees will never ask for your password!
