Set a Secure Password:

It is certainly the first solution to be implemented: setting a secure password means putting a strong first barrier between your profile and the attacker who is trying to attack it. To change your current password and enter a more difficult one to track down, go to your Epic Games account and go to the “Account” > “Password and security” section. Here type your current password (there is a special text field) and then enter the new one, repeating it.

Finally, confirm the operation by pressing “Save changes”. We remind you that the password you are trying to set cannot be the same as one of the last ones you used. Furthermore, it must contain at least 7 characters and at least 1 number. All of course for a security issue.

If you have difficulty remembering your password we advise you to mark it on a slip or diary: so you will not have to use any program to retrieve it and you will always have it at hand.

Other Tips to Consider:

Having said that the secure password is the first step to take to ensure good protection for your account, then there are a series of tricks we want you to consider. The first of these concerns the installation of an antivirus software or app. There are so many available in the market.

Secondly, make sure you have the operating system of the device with which you play Fortnite (smartphone or PC) up to date, in order to avoid security problems. Furthermore, do not trust shared systems to access the account of the famous game: Internet Points and Libraries are not the best, because they expose your profile to risks, since the security level could be compromised. In any case, if you really can’t do without it, always change your password following the instructions we gave you in the previous paragraph.

It will then seem obvious, but we also want to tell you that it is a good idea not to share your data with other people. Don’t take unnecessary risks. Do not then go to sites that promise free V-Buck, which in the vast majority of cases are scam or scam attempts.

You should now have a complete and comprehensive overview of how to protect your Fortnite account. This is nothing particularly complex, is it? However, if you are experiencing problems or think your account is already under attack, our final advice is to contact Epic Games. Just click here and press the “Contact Us” button at the top right.
