Fortnite: How to Enable Two Factor Authentication!

Epic Games has kept on top of their in-game security for Fortnite.

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.
