If Fornite Battle Royale on console and PC taught us anything, it’s how important it is to protect your accounts from scammers.
Fornite Battle Royale is an incredibly popular game, and unfortunately, that means its attracted lots of scammers. Typically, these scammers will spam you with offers for free Vbuck (Fornite’s in-game currency) in the form of links.
Here’s the thing: There are no free Vbucks. Epic Games has confirmed this.It’s all a scam to get your Epic Games account login.
The first thing to do to protect yourself is don’t click on any of these links. Never, ever. But the other thing you can, and definitely should do, is to add two-factor authentication, a.k.a 2FA.
Even though Fornite battle Royale hasn’t officially launched on iOS yet, it’s never too early to set up 2FA to protect your account to be compromised; here’s how you set it up!
How to add 2FA to your Fortnite account
Here’s how to add some extra security to your Epic Games account, using 2FA:
- Go to accounts.epicgames.com and enter your login information on your iPhone.
- Tap Sign In.
Open the menu on the Fornite website. It’s the hamburger menu button in the top right.
- Tap on your profile. It’s a little silhouette of a person.
- Tap account.
Tap Password & Security.
- Scroll down to the bottom of the page.
- Tap Enable Two-Factor Sign In.
Now, whenever you log in to a new device with your Epic Games account, you’ll be emailed a unique code which you will need to enter before you’re allowed access.
