If you know how to enable Fortnite 2FA on your account, then you can make it a lot more secure and protect it from any hackers who may try to gain access and steal your items. If you’re a regular player then it’s likely you’ve already amassed plenty of gear in your locker, and you may be stocked up on V-Bucks through battle pass progress or cash purchases, so it would be a nightmare if a password breach meant that someone else could hijack your account and lock you out.
Epic considers Fortnite two factor authentication to be such a high priority that they’ll even give you rewards for signing up to this additional security measure, which should give you some indication of how important this is. The Boogie Down emote can be yours just for switching on Fortnite 2FA, and if you’re playing Save the World then you’ll also receive 50 armory slots, 10 backpack slots, and one Legendary Troll Stash Llama for making 2FA happen.

So what’s all the fuss? With two factor authentication turned on there’s and extra lock on your account that means, even if a data leak or breach exposes your password, hackers won’t be able to access anything. That’s because two factor authentication in Fortnite adds an extra stage to logging in that requests an additional code that will only be sent to you. Without it, the password alone is useless to anyone else.
Using Fortnite two-factor authentication to protect your Fortnite account is easy, and well worth the couple of minutes it’ll take to set up. So here’s how to enable Fortnite 2FA and protect all of your hard-earned stuff.
How to enable 2FA on Fortnite
To enable 2FA on your Fortnite account, simply head to Fortnite.com/2FA (opens in new tab). Log in to your Epic Games account and underneath the option to change your password, you should see the prompt to enable either email 2FA or authenticator app 2FA. Pick your preferred choice and follow the instructions on screen to enable Fortnite 2FA.
How to get the Boogie Down emote through Fortnite 2FA
Enabling 2FA on your account will get you the Fortnite Boogie Down emote, so the next time you log in you should receive your reward automatically. If you haven’t got Fortnite 2FA yet, then here’s another good reason to do so – you’ll soon have a brand new dance to use in-game!
