'Fortnite' 2FA Guide - How to Get Boogie Down Free With 2-Factor Security

Fortnite players may have seen that the new Boogie Down emote can be unlocked for free by enabling 2FA (also called two-factor authentication) on their Epic account. Below, we'll tell you how to enable 2FA and what that means for your security.

How to enable 2FA (two-factor authentication) in 'Fortnite'

To add 2FA to your Epic account, follow the steps below:

  1. Go to the Unreal Engine Accounts website and sign in with the proper credentials.
  2. Select "Password & Security."
  3. At the bottom of the page, choose an option to enable two-factor authentication via an app or email. Email is probably the easiest choice if you don't plan on keeping it. With an Authentication App, you can use apps like Google Authenticator, LastPass, Microsoft Authenticator or Authy to send you a unique code each time you sign in.

Either way, once you enable one of the two 2FA options, the Boogie Down emote should be part of your Fortnite locker.

What is 2FA in 'Fortnite?'

Two-factor authentication means you must enter two codes each time your Epic account is signed in from a new location. In addition to your standard password, 2FA also sends a short code to your email or an app based on the option you selected above. 2FA means it takes longer to sign in, but it keeps your Epic account safe from hackers who want to steal your V-Bucks and credit card info. Especially if you've made lots of purchases in Fortnite, we advise keeping 2FA enabled even after you get the Boogie Down emote.

Fortnite is in early access across PS4, Xbox One, Switch, PC and mobile. The 2FA offer is available on all platforms.
