As you probably already know, Epic Games Store offers weekly games to get for free, but today, it is necessary to activate two-factor authentication to be able to take advantage of this offer.
Currently, it is possible to download the game For The King without paying a penny, but right now, and until May 21, players must activate double authentication to be able to recover these free titles. If you are trying to download a game when you have not activated two-factor authentication, the following message will appear:
Two-factor authentication required – To take advantage of this free game, you must activate two-factor authentication on your account. Two-factor authentication gives your Epic Games account an extra level of security and reduces the risk of unauthorized access.
Indeed, since the Nintendo affair last week, publishers and developers seem to want to keep their community safe from hackers. As a reminder, Epic Games had already proposed this kind of initiative by offering, for example, unique rewards to Fortnite players using two-factor authentication.
We understand that this is a little inconvenience for some of you, but we want to offer you the best possible solutions to protect your Epic account.
Obviously, this manipulation can be painful for some, but it allows you to protect your data from unintentional people.
