  3. Under the “Two-Factor Authentication” heading, click the 2FA option you want to enable:
  4. Third Party Authentication App: Use an authenticator app as your two-factor authentication (2FA). When you sign in, you’ll be prompted to use the security code provided by your authenticator app.
  5. SMS authentication: Use your phone as your two-factor authentication (2FA) when you sign in, you’ll be prompted to use the security code that Epic sends you via SMS.
  6. Enable email authentication: Use a security code sent to your email address as your two-factor authentication (2FA). The security code will be sent to the address associated with your account. You’ll need to use it when you sign in.
  7. If you choose to use an authenticator app for 2FA, these common authenticator apps can be found in your mobile device’s app store.
  8. Check that 2FA is enabled
  9. Refresh your account page and confirm that the authentication method shows enabled by looking for the blue button that says “On”.

Note that if you choose more than one authentication method, you’ll want to check the box that says “Make this my primary two-factor authentication method” under your preferred contact method.

Why You Should Enable Fortnite Two Factor Authentication

There are several reasons to enable 2FA in Fortnite. The main one is to keep your account safe from scammers. Having an extra step when logging into your account makes it more difficult for someone to access, which is recommended if you have any linked payment methods. Unfortunately, V-Bucks scams are pretty common, so adding this extra layer of security will mean you’ll be less likely to get hacked.

If you’re looking to compete in Fortnite cup events, you’ll also need 2FA enabled. This is so you can earn the rewards associated with each event. For example, the recent Obi-Wan Cup allowed players to earn the Obi-Wan skin for competing. This was only possible if you had 2FA enabled.

Finally, having two factors active on your account will allow you to gift items in the Item Shop. You can buy and gift everything from skins to V-Bucks and send them to your friends.

This is how to enable 2FA on your Fortnite account. For more on the game, check out our guide on the current Fortnite map, so you can make sure you’ve unlocked all of the named locations.
