In Fortnite 2, players other than playing their own exciting skins and emotes are more valuable. So it would be awful if hackers hack a player’s account, which consists of valuable items. For this, Epic Games have come up with a new idea called two-factor authentication. Let’s see how to enable two-factor authentication for your Fortnite account.
Fortnite is the online video game developed by Epic Games in the year of 2017. It has three distinct game modes like Fortnite Save the World, Fortnite Battle Royale, and Fortnite Creative. Fortnite Save the world is a pay-to-play game, and the other two game modes, called Battle Royale and Creative, are free-to-play games.

What is 2FA?
2FA means two-factor authentication, which is the new feature developed by Epic games. It is like adding extra protection to make your earned emotes and skins. 2FA has a new protection technique that protects your Fortnite account from the hands of hackers. This two-factor authentication provides you a code whenever you try to log in. According to your preference, the code will be sent either to your email or your authentication app.
This 2FA not only protects your Fortnite account but also provides exciting free items. If you are playing Save the world game mode, you will get 50 army slots, 10 backpack slots, and one Legendary Troll Stash, Lame. And in turn, if you play Battle Royale, you will get Boogie Down to emote.
