Access for you and only you!

With dual factor authentication, no one but you can access your Fortnite or Epic Games account. Unless you have access to your phone, email or backup codes, which is pretty difficult. We strongly recommend that you activate this option if you spend a lot of time on the game and especially if you spend a lot of money on it. Be aware that you will need to use this two-factor authentication each time you log into your Fortnite account.

Activation of the A2F option takes up to five minutes. It is done as well via your mobile phone as on a computer. But the process is simpler on computer or tablet, because you will have to scan the QR code during the process. Each time you authenticate on Fortnite, you receive a six-digit code, essential for logging in. The code changes approximately every thirty seconds, preventing any other user from logging into your account.

How to proceed ?

1. Go to fortnite.com/2FA,
