TWO-FACTOR Authentication (2FA) is an important part of account security, and you can earn rewards in Fortnite just for securing your account.
This adds an extra layer of security to your Fortnite account as a scammer will need both your password and access to your phone to get their hands on your V-Bucks.
Every time you try to log in from a new device with 2FA enabled, you will be prompted to verify your account using a smart device.
This means that even if someone has your password, they can’t claim your outfits and emotes without access to your phone.
Developer Epic Games is constantly trying to encourage its users to set up 2FA as it helps prevent bots from entering the game.
Therefore, there are often additional rewards only for verified accounts. A win for everyone.
This includes the upcoming $1 million MrBeast giveaway, which requires a verified account to enter.
Rewards for enabling 2FA in Fortnite
Even if you’re not worried about security, you should enable 2FA just because you’ll earn a handful of rewards to use in-game. Here’s what you can expect:
Save the world:
- x50 Armory slots
- x10 backpack compartments
- x1 Legendary Troll Hideout Llama
