With the popularity of Fortnite, account security has become an important topic for Epic Games and their players. Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) is one of the most secure ways people can keep their gaming information safe. 2FA is a type, or subset, of multi-factor authentication.

A good example of two-factor authentication is the withdrawal of money from an ATM. In order to withdraw money, the PIN and the debit card are needed. In the case of Fortnite however, players will need to enter a code from their preferred two-factor authentication method in order to be signed into their account. Players will also be prompted to enter the 2FA passcode when they sign in for the first time after enabling the feature if they use a new device, clear their browser cookies, or thirty days pass since they last signed in.

The Enable Email Authenticator button will set up 2FA using the player’s Epic Games email account. That means when the player signs in from a new device, clears their browser cookies, or signs in again after thirty days pass, then they will need to use a code that is sent to their email. This is generally the more common two-factor authentication method.
The Enable Authenticator App Button will set up 2FA using a third-party authentication application.
