Fortnite is known as one of the most well-known video games in the world. This one has thousands of young fans pouring hours into the battle royale mode every day. It means that to lose the progress of someone, maybe to a hacker breaking their way into your account and tinkering with loots and goodies you have unlocked, would be a catastrophe. Fortunately, security measures are in place to make sure this does not happen.
Two Factor Authentication of 2FA is the name of a security setting that assists Epic Games users in protecting their account from hacking threats. This one is able to be used to help protect your account from unauthorized access by requiring you to enter an additional code when you sign in. Once you have opted into Two Factor Authentication or 2FA, you will be asked to enter the code from your preferred 2FA method, then you will be signed into your account.
Then, you will be prompted for the Two Factor Authentication or 2FA passcode the first time you sign in after enabling the feature, if you use a new device, if it has been more than 30 days since you last signed in or if you have cleared your browser cookies recently.
Then, how to enable 2FA Fortnite on Xbox? In order to opt into Two Factor Authentication or 2FA, the first thing that you have to do is to go to your Epic Games Account Settings. Then, click on the Password & Security tab to view your security settings. At the bottom of the page, under the Two Factor Authentication heading, you need to click to Enable Authenticator App or Enable Email Authentication as your two-factor method. From there, you are able to opt to authenticate your account via email or an authenticator app, such as Google Authenticator, Microsoft Authenticator, Authy, or LastPAss Authenticator.
Aside from the method explained above, there is also another way that you can use to turn on Two Factor Authentication or 2FA for Xbox Live. First of all, log into Xbox Live with your Microsoft account as you usually would. Then, go to your Security Settings page. Under the two-step verification, please select Set up two step verification if you want to turn it on. You are almost done. In order to finalize the process, the last thing that you have to do is to input the information requested.
If that method does not work for you, please read this paragraph. Before you are able to activate Two Factor Authentication or 2FA on your account, you will have to install an authentication app that supports TOTP algorithms such as Google Authenticator, Microsoft Authenticator, Authy, or LastPAss Authenticator. Once you have downloaded an authentication app, you need to go into your Settings, select Profile, Two-factor auth, and turn the toggle on to enable Two Factor Authentication or 2FA.
