https //fortnite.com/2fa ps4 : Two-factor authentication and how to enable it
Your Fortnite account security for PS4 is our top priority! Protect your account by enabling 2FA at fortnite.com/2fa. As a reward for protecting your account, you’ll unlock the Boogiedown Emote in Fortnite Battle Royale.
Why is it important to enable 2FA?
We highly recommend enabling two-factor authentication (2FA) for the following reasons:
2FA increases the security of your account. Even if somebody guesses your password, they won’t be able to access your account.
- Free games!
2FA is required to claim some free games on the Epic Games Store.
2FA is required to send gifts in Fortnite.
- Competing in Fortnite!
2FA is required for participation in Fortnite competitive events such as the Fortnite World Cup!
Since your account security is a priority for us, we also give players rewards for enabling 2FA.
How do I enable 2FA?
- Go to the ACCOUNT page
- Click the PASSWORD & SECURITY tab
- Under the TWO-FACTOR AUTHENTICATION header, click the 2FA option you want to enable: ENABLE AUTHENTICATOR APP, ENABLE SMS AUTHENTICATION or ENABLE EMAIL AUTHENTICATION.
If you opt to use an authenticator app for 2FA, these common authenticator apps can be found in your mobile device app store:
- Google Authenticator
- LastPass Authenticator
