Epic Games, the developer of Fortnite, provides two-factor authentication to secure your account and protect it from unauthorized access.
The company also gives you free gifts when you activate the two-factor authentication feature in Fortnite. Gifts come to encourage users to activate the feature even though they protect your account.
In 2018, a BBC interview appeared of a Slovenian teenager who made more than $20,000 in a short period by selling stolen Fortnite accounts.
The young man stated that he was using primitive methods to steal accounts and that the accounts are like a closed bag, and you may find an account that contains a lot of purchases or find an empty account.
The more rare the purchases and clothes in the account, the higher its price and the easier the opportunity to sell it.
And this is one story out of many others. There are outfits in Fortnite that are so rare that they are worth hundreds or even thousands of dollars.
The accounts of the majority of the audience are usually not fully secured, because most of them are children, so passwords are usually easy to crack, which is why Epic Games decided to give everyone who does two-step authentication through their account a Boogiedown dance in addition to a host of other rewards.
How to enable two-factor authentication:
Epic Games allows you to use three two-step access methods:
Using an external authentication application: an application that you associate with your account, and that generates random code every time you log in
Receive a random authentication code via email.
Receive the authentication code via an SMS on your phone.
It is best to receive the random authentication code via email. The authentication application cannot be changed and if you lose it or your phone, you will not be able to access your fortnite account.
To activate receiving the random code via e-mail, follow these steps:
Head to your Epic Games account page in a web browser
Then head to the Passwords and Security page, after which I search for two-step authentication.
Click to activate authentication via email
Go to your email, and then copy the code that you will receive via mail
Return to the activation page and then paste the code there.
And if you want to activate the authentication via an external application, follow the steps mentioned above, but instead of choosing the verification via mail, go to the authentication via an external application.
Scan the QR Code that appears in front of you through the application that you will rely on, and then enter the six-digit code that appears in front of you on the Fortnite account page.
You can use two-factor authentication via your phone number by clicking on the sign in front of it, then entering the phone number you want to link and waiting until you receive the random code, and then entering it on the site.
This method also protects your Epic Games Store account, which is an important step if you use the store a lot to buy different games.
