Fortnite has a giveaway if you enable two-factor authentication

The Fortnite Boogie Down emote is free with 2FA

While reducing the chances of being hacked should be enough of an incentive to enable 2FA, it seems many Fortnite players need the promise of the new "Boogie Down" victory dance to convince them. Of course you do.

Epic Games is incentivizing players of its free-to-play battle royale game Fortnite to up their security settings by offering an exclusive in-game emote to players that enable two-factor authentication on their accounts.

It's an easy thing to do, and probably not a bad idea in this age of jerks messing with your stuff.

At the bottom of the page, under the TWO-FACTOR AUTHENTICATION heading, click to ENABLE AUTHENTICATOR APP or ENABLE EMAIL AUTHENTICATION as your two-factor method. "You will be prompted for the two-factor passcode the first time you sign in after enabling the feature, if you use a new device, if it's been over 30 days since you last signed in or if you've cleared your browser cookies recently".

Two-factor authentication-sometimes abbreviated to 2FA-is basically a double-check system that ensures you know what's going on with your account: Logins or changes have to be verified independently before they're allowed, through an emailed link or a standalone app.

Utah's first West Nile death of 2018 reported in Salt Lake County
The Department of Health in Bay County (DOH-Bay) has confirmed one human case of West Nile Virus infection in Bay County. The health authority says no human cases have been reported and no positive mosquito pools have been identified.

What is two-factor authentication?

When you go to sign in, you'll be asked to enter the security code from your preferred 2FA method (email or app).

After completing one of these steps, the Fortnite Boogie Down emote should be available to unlock and equip in your Battle Royale loadout screen.

Epic Games is looking out for their customers. "Then you will be signed into your account".
