To conclude, I want to remind you that, as also the developers of Fortnite have stated on Twitter , you must absolutely be wary of anyone who promises to give V-Bucks (or other objects) for free, through direct contact in the game or by suggesting to redeem them through special Internet sites : in fact, these are scams.

The only solution to get V-Bucks for free on Fortnite for Nintendo Switch is the one I told you about in my guide: other solutions not indicated could be an attempt to scam.

For this reason, never enter the login data of your Epic Games account on unofficial websites and, if you have any doubts about the reliability of a website, check for the presence of the HTTPS protocol ( the padlock icon green closed ) in the address bar.

In addition, to check the Web reputation of a website, you can use services such as  Trustpilot , which allow you to perform a quick check of the reliability of a website based on the feedback provided by users. For more information on this, refer to my guide on how to recognize a fake site .

Finally, I suggest you protect your Epic Games account by activating two-factor authentication via the app ( Activate the Authenticator app ) or via email ( Enable email authentication ), by accessing the account settings menu.

In this way, in fact, you can protect your account from unauthorized access, since, by logging in from an unrecognized device, you will also need to enter a disposable code obtained via email or via an app like  Google Authenticator  ( Android / iOS ), in addition to the basic account password.
