This has lead to a great community and in-game experience. This means you'll rarely run into hackers and cheaters.
However, if you want the best experience, you should enable 2 Factor Authentication.
How to Enable 2FA
To begin, head over to the Epic Games website. Here, you'll need to login to your account, or create a new one if you don't have an account.
GUIDE THE WAY - Drop at the Lighthouse for a quiet landing spot!
Head to account settings and click on the 'Password & Security' tab.
Here, you'll choose between using the authentication app, or email. (Using Email is definitely easier)
If you're using an authentication app, you'll need to use one of these: Google Authenticator, LastPass, Microsoft Authenticator or Authy.
Why Enable 2FA?
The main reason you will want 2FA connected to your Epic Games account is for the added security.
VEHICLES - Use Boats, Choppas and Cars to get around the Fortnite map!
Anyone trying to access your account will not only need your username and password, but also your email/authentication app.
However, most developers/games want to promote 2 Factor Authentication, so will reward you with some in-game cosmetics.
If you also happen to have the Save the World game mode, you'll get some awesome bonuses for that as well!
