Fortnite developer Epic Games implemented a security feature for game accounts called two-factor authentication (2FA) to help gamers keep their accounts secure.
2FA protects Fortnite player accounts with a second security layer. It also gives them the free Boogiedown emote in Fortnite: Battle Royale and lets them use the gifting system.

As explained by Epic in its blog, 2FA “can be used to help protect your account from unauthorized access by requiring you to enter an additional code when you sign in.” Epic’s system allows players to receive this additional code on their phone or email.
Players who enable 2FA will have to type the additional code when they first log into their Epic account after enabling the feature, when they use a new device to log in, when it’s been 30 days since their last login, or if they cleared cache and cookies history from their device.
