Fortnite: How to enable two-factor authentication and get rewards


TWO-FACTOR authentication (2FA) is an important part of account security, and you can earn rewards in Fortnite just for securing your account.

This adds an extra layer of security to your Fortnite account, as a scammer will need both your password, and access to your phone to get their hands on your V-Bucks.

The two have paired up for a massive giveaway

Every time you attempt to log in from a new device with 2FA enabled, you will be asked to verify your account via a smart device.

This means that even if someone has your password, they won’t be able to claim your outfits and emotes without access to your phone.

Developer Epic Games continually tries to encourage its users to set up 2FA as it helps prevent bots from entering the game.

As such, it often gives out extra rewards just for verified accounts. A win-win for everyone.

This includes the upcoming $1million MrBeast giveaway, which you need a verified account in order to enter.

Rewards for enabling 2FA in Fortnite

Even if you’re not concerned about security, you should enable 2FA just because you’ll earn a handful of rewards to use in gameplay. Here’s what you can expect to receive: 

Battle Royale: 

  • Boogie Down emote 

Save The World: 

  • x50 Armory Slots
  • x10 Backpack Slots
  • x1 Legendary Troll Stash Llama 

How to enable 2FA in Fortnite

If you want to earn rewards and secure your account, this is what you need to do.

  • Click this Epic Games link and enter your Account Settings, navigate to the Password & Security tab, and finally, your Security Settings.
  • Under Two-Factor Authentication, click Enable Authenticator App or Enable Email Authentication. The App method is the most secure as it links only to your phone.

If you opt to use an Authenticator App for Fortnite, you can use one of the following apps: 

  • Google Authenticator.
  • LastPass Authenticator.
  • Microsoft Authenticator.
  • Authy (we recommend for ease of use).
