Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) is an optional sign-in feature that provides additional security for your account.
If you decide to enable 2FA, each time you sign in using your password, you’ll receive a one-time security code that’s available for a short period of time.
The security code will be sent to you through the verification method that you selected in your account settings.
Currently, 2FA security codes can be received through either an authentication app or via the email address on your Epic Games account.
When you sign in, you’ll be asked to enter the security code from the 2FA method you selected (email or app). After you enter the code, you’ll be signed into your account. You’ll be prompted for a 2FA security code in the following situations:
The first time you sign in after enabling the feature
If you sign in using a new device
If it’s been over 30 days since you last signed in
If you recently cleared your browser cookies
Note: The email address associated with your Epic Games account must be verified before you can enable this feature.
