How to Activate Fortnite 2FA (it’s worth it!)
- Players must login to an Epic account to begin
- The game provides a cool emote as a reward
- Accounts comes with password recovery help
Most Fortnite players would agree that a secure account is of the utmost importance. It appears Epic Games agrees with this as well as the company is now giving players a little reward for securing their accounts with 2 factor authentication (2FA). Players can begin by going to the Fortnite AFA activation page. After arriving at the page players can then enter their existing Epic account credentials to login. Once logged in, Epic provides 2 factor authentication options under the Password & Security section. It should be noted that players can choose between using either an authentication app (Last Pass, Microsoft, Google, etc.) or email authentication.
Why activate Fornite 2FA?
- Epic will reward players with a Boogiedown emote in the game’s Battle Royale
- Players will earn 50 armory slots and 10 backpack slots for Save the World
- Epic also rewards players with their very own Legendary Troll Stash Llama
- Players are protected from unauthorized account access (first and foremost)
Players who can’t remember their Epic account password can begin by clicking the Forgot your password? link at the Fortnite AFA activation page. After clicking the link, the system requires an email address before clicking the Send Email button. Shortly after submitting the email Epic will send instructions on how to reset the account password.
When will I be asked to use my Fortnite 2FA?
- Players will need to use the passcode the first time logging in after enabling 2FA
- Epic will require 2FA for players who are logging in with a new device (makes sense)
- Players who have not signed in for over 30 days will be asked to complete the 2FA
- Browsers with cleared cookies will prompt the need for 2FA to be initiated
Players who have yet to sign up for an Epic account must do so before completing the 2FA activation. This can be done in just a few seconds by entering a name, display name, email address, and password. Once the account has been successfully registered activation of the 2FA can take place.
