Whether you’re taking part in Fortnite Competitive matches or playing for fun, it’s always a good idea to protect your account.

The Fortnite World Cup begins next week, and all players who compete in the Final Round of the Fortnite World Cup Warmup and other cash prize tournaments will be required to enable two-factor authentication and link their account to an Epic ID.
