In case of problems

Have you decided to change your Fortnite account password, as you believe that the security of your account may have been compromised? If so, I have a few tips to give you.

The first tip I want to give you is to activate two-factor authentication , that is, an additional security measure that associates a disposable code with the password of your account, to avoid unauthorized access. The code, in fact, is requested every time you try to log in to the account from a new device and is delivered to a device in the user’s possession (for example on the smartphone via a special app or via email).

That said, to activate two-factor authentication on Fortnite, log in to your account via the official Epic Games website and go to the Password and security section .

Therefore, activate two-factor authentication via email or with an authentication app, such as  Google Authenticator  ( Android  and  iOS ). If you have any doubts or problems, please refer to my tutorial on how to protect your Fortnite account .

In addition, other tips that I want to give you are to use a secure password and to use antivirus software or apps . Be wary of shared systems: therefore, avoid accessing your Epic Games account from shared computers, such as those present in Internet Points or in the library, to avoid exposing your account to possible security risks.

Do not forget also that the security measures are never too many: in this regard, never share your Epic Games account data with other people and, above all, be wary of websites that promise to give costumes or V-Bucks , as these are, of course, attempts to scam or scam.

Finally, if you suspect that your Epic Games account has been compromised, contact Fortnite technical support : connect to this link and press the Contact us button located in the upper right corner, so as to solve the problem as soon as possible found.
