Two-Factor authentication, or 2FA for short, adds a layer of security to your Epic Games account by requesting a six-digit code to be entered during every login. This code can either come from an Authenticator App, such as Authy, or from your email. Each time you log in, you’ll be prompted for this code.

To enable 2FA on your Fortnite account, head to the Epic Games account page and follow the steps after clicking either the Enable Authenticator App or Enable Email Authentication. You can only configure one of the two options.

What If I Already Enabled 2FA?

If you’ve already got email two-factor authentication enabled, you may want to switch to the authenticator app version. You’ll need to disable the email authentication first; then you can enable the authenticator app option.

It’s an excellent idea for Epic Games to promote the extra level of security that two-factor authentication provides, especially in a game as high-profile as Fortnite. To find out what other accounts you can secure with two-factor authentication, check out this list.
