This news blew the player’s mind when they saw it popping in Fortnite’s in-game news section as $10 are enough to get 950-V bucks or Fortnite battle pass for free.
According to the message, all players will have to enable two-factor authentication (2FA) on their Epic Games account during Epic Games Mega Sale. Upon completion, players will get $10 in their account.

Two-factor authentication is the best way to secure your account. By offering an incentive to players, Epic Games is hoping to enable more security measures on players’ accounts. This wouldn’t be the first time the developers have offered rewards for enabling 2FA but, this time reward is $ 10, and it is sufficient for a player to buy new skins, cosmetic items, or the Season 9 Battle Pass in Fortnite Battle Royale.
