As a reward for protecting your account by enabling Two-Factor Authentication (2FA), Epic Games will unlock the Boogiedown Emote in Fortnite Battle Royale for you for free. The feature currently supports the use of an authenticator app or an email address authentication method and helps protect your account from unauthorized access.
Once you enable 2FA, you will be asked to enter the code from your preferred two-factor authentication method, then you will be signed into your account.
Users will be prompted for the two-factor passcode the first time they sign in after enabling the feature, if they use a new device, if it’s been over 30 days since they last signed in or if they’ve cleared their browser cookies recently.
To opt into 2FA, here’s what you need to do:
- In your Account Settings, click on the PASSWORD & SECURITY tab to view your security settings.
- 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
