First of all, 2FA is an added security layer that helps you ensure that you are using your account. 2 Factor Authentication is a security feature to ensure you’re the one using it. It also has the following uses:

1. Security Feature:

It adds another layer of security to your account. So, if someone hacks your account, they still wouldn’t access other features unless they can also hack the 2FA password.

2. Competitive:

Almost all competitive (& Esports) games have made it mandatory to have a 2FA before participation.

3. Gifts & Trading:

With this feature, you can gift stuff to your friends and trade with them simultaneously.

However, to turn on/enable it, you’ll need to follow a few steps. You can do this in multiple ways, i.e., from an application, SMS, or email. Before you do this, make sure that your Epic Games account has a verified email address and/or phone number. Follow the steps below to do it on your own:

Step-1: Open Epic Games Store on your PC or browser. (Make sure you’re signed in to your Epic Games account)

Step-2: On the top right corner of the screen, click on your Profile. Choose ‘Account‘ from the list.

Step-3: Choose the fifth option i.e. ‘Password & Security‘.

Step-5: Select the option most viable for you here.

Note: The fastest way of doing it is using the SMS option. This is what we highly recommend for a quick process. The Email verification might be slower and not preferred chiefly.
