2FA is an option for your Fortnite account to help secure it. It’s also needed for gifting and other features. Here’s how to enable two factor authentication on Fortnite.
Epic Games added 2FA in Fortnite more than a year ago in order to combat all the accounts that were getting hacked. Hackers would obtain accounts through keylogging, phishing and others methods in order to sell the accounts.
Epic decided to add two factor authentication in Fortnite, and also added a free emote to reward players that enabled 2FA on their Fortnite account. The reward is the Boogie down emote.
