In case of problems
Have you decided to change your Fortnite account password, as you believe your account security may have been compromised? If so, I have some tips for you.
The first piece of advice I want to give you is to activate two-factor authentication, i.e. an additional security measure that associates a one-time code with the password of your account, to prevent unauthorized access. The code, in fact, is requested every time you try to access the account from a new device and is delivered to a device owned by the user (for example on the smartphone via a special app or via email).
That said, to activate two-factor authentication on Fortnite, log into your account via the official Epic Games website and reach the section Password and security.
Then activate thetwo-factor authentication means e-mail or with an authentication app, such as Google Authenticator (Android and iOS). If you have any doubts or problems, please refer to my tutorial on how to protect your Fortnite account.
Also, other tips I want to give you are to use a secure password and make use of antivirus software or apps. Also, be wary of shared systems: therefore, avoid accessing your Epic Games account from shared computers, such as those present in Internet Points or in the library, to avoid exposing your account to possible security risks.
Don't forget that there are never too many security measures: in this regard, never share your Epic Games account data with other people and, above all, Beware of websites that promise to give away costumes or V-Bucks, as it is, of course, scam attempts or scams.
Finally, if you suspect your Epic Games account has been compromised, please contact the Support Fortnite: connect to this link and press the button Contact us located in the upper right corner, in order to solve the problem you are having as soon as possible.
