A simple guide for how to get 2FA on Fortnite so you can participate in the upcoming PS4 exclusive tournament, Celebration Cup.

Fortnite update 11.50 arrives today and this will unleash the chaos physics engine before the planned arrival of Season 2 on February 20th. However, before the second season arrives, there’ll be a PlayStation 4 exclusive tournament for players to participate in named the Celebration Cup. One of the requirements to participate is enabling 2FA, and in this guide you’ll discover how to do just that.

It was predicted awhile back by Forbes that there would be a Birds Of Prey crossover event for Fortnite. Epic Games’ teasing of a Harley Quinn skin pretty much all-but-confirmed this to be true, but recently there’s been a leak which confirms the once hypothetical event’s existence.

However, while Epic Games haven’t announced its existence as of writing, what they have announced is a PS4 4 tournament. There are certain requirements which need to be fulfilled in order to gain free entry, and below you’ll discover how to get 2FA.

What is 2FA for Fortnite?

2FA for Fortnite is simply two-factor authentication.

All 2FA does is add an extra layer of security to further protect your account from hackers with ill-intentions.

It’s basically similar to what you should already have with your email account. You try to login to your email by entering the correct address and password, and then you’re prompted to either answer a security question or input a code sent to your mobile phone.

This is precisely how 2FA works for Fortnite. When trying to login to your Fortnite account on a new device, you will be sent a unique code to your email address to ensure that you are the legitimate owner. Either that or you can access your unique code via Authenticator App.

While this is good for the safety of your belongings and private details, it’s also a mandatory requirement in order to participate in the upcoming PlayStation 4 tournament, the Celebration Cup.
