How do you get set-up and login into Fortnite? It depends on what device you’re playing on, first and foremost. The process of getting Fortnite on your phone was easier on iOS than it is on Android initially, but now you can no longer download Fortnite on iOS. Thankfully, though, Fortnite on Android is available on Google Play, so it’s just as easy these days.

Once you’re all set up, it’s a simple case of booting up the game and either signing in if you’ve already created an Epic account or making a new one. The Fortnite login on mobile can play up from time-to-time, however, so we’ll go over some fixes down below. Before you get going, though, you may want to think about enabling two-factor authentication for safety reasons – you can never be too safe, after all. You’ll also need to know how to enable Fortnite crossplay if you want to play with pals on different platforms.

Getting to grips with all of this can be a headache, so we’ve put together this handy Fortnite login guide to help you get started. We’ll go over how to download, login, and enable 2FA and crossplay so you’ll be ready to play Epic’s battle royale with no distractions.

Everything you need to know about Fortnite login:

How to download Fortnite mobile

Getting Fortnite on your iPhone is no longer possible, as due to an ongoing legal battle Apple has restricted Epic from placing the game on the App Store. These days, the only way to play mobile is on Android. Simply head to Google Play and download it. It didn’t use to be that easy, as Epic initially decided to bypass the store and sell the game itself.

Do keep in mind, however, that this could be set to change shortly. In a recent interview with GameSpot, Epic Games CEO Tim Sweeney expressed his desire to bring the Epic Games Store to Android and iOS. He was far more confident about pulling it off on the former than the latter, especially considering the lawsuit between Epic and Apple over the last year. Either way, you’ll probably have to head there to download Fortnite on your phone in the future, if and when it happens.

How to login to Fortnite

This one is also straightforward. Once you boot up Fortnite on your phone, you’ll be presented with a button that says “Tap to Start”. Once you tap it, you’ll be asked to sign in to an existing account or create a new one. If you already have an Epic account, use your sign-in details. If you don’t, you can create one in-game, and it won’t take you too long at all.

The Fortnite login has been known to have the odd hic-up, mind you. Thankfully Epic is aware of it, and have shared information on how to get around it on its Reddit page. The issue should be fixed right now, but you never know when it might happen again.

How to enable Fortnite 2FA

You can enable Fornite 2FA by going to Epic’s website and signing in. Once you’re there, go to your account, then Password & Security, and then scroll down to two-factor authentication. Once you’re there, you’ll be given three options on how to add more security to your account. These include; using an authenticator app, getting a unique code sent to your phone every time you sign in, and getting a code sent to your chosen email address.

How to enable Fortnite crossplay

To enable crossplay on Fortnite all you need to do is set up an Epic Games account – chances are you have one already. Once you have one, make sure to link your account and use it to add friends who play on different platforms. Once everyone is added, log into Fornite and hit the Party Finder option on the main screen. There you’ll find all your Epic Games friends regardless of their platform.

These days, Fortnite has cross-play between all platforms. PlayStation 4 was the last to join in but eventually did so. That means you can Fortnite with anyone now, regardless of their chosen platform. There’s nothing on next-gen support just yet, but we’d be surprised if there were any issues there.
