What is Fortnite 2FA?

Two factor authentication - 2FA for short - is essentially a way of keeping your Fortnite account more secure. Since Fortnite is so popular, there's always people trying to hack your account and gain access to your favourite skins, so enabling 2FA is absolutely mandatory for stopping unwanted intruders.

The way it works is by making it so whenever you (or someone else) tries to access your Fortnite account from a new machine, you will need to prove its legitimate by inputting a code. This can either be emailed to you or provided via an authenticator app - the preference is yours - and while it can be annoying if you have to do it frequently, it means your account will be completely secure. As long as you don't give anyone the unique 2FA code, of course.

Pick your preferred option and follow the instructions on screen to enable Fortnite 2FA.
