How to recover Fortnite account passwords

At this point, log in to your inbox, so that you can see the email received from Epic Games: then press on the Reset password button located inside it and type, in the new text field that is shown, the new password you want to set for your account.
Now, confirm your password by typing it into the Confirm Password text field and finally, press the Reset Password button to complete the operation.

How to protect your Fortnite account
To avoid unpleasant situations such as needing to change your Fortnite account password following unrecognised login attempts, it is advisable to protect your account by activating two-factor authentication.
This is, in fact, an optional access method designed to provide additional security to your account. On Fortnite you can activate two-factor authentication through the use of an authentication app (such as Google Authenticator for Android and iOS/iPadOS) or through the email address of your Epic Games account.
Once this feature is activated, each time you log into your account using a new device or client, you will also be prompted to enter a unique security code which will be provided to you via the authentication app of your choice or sent to you via email.
That said, to activate this option, connect to the official Fortnite website and go to the Account > Password and Security section.
Now, choose whether to enable two-factor authentication via app (Enable Authenticator app) or to enable email authentication (Enable email authentication).
Once this is done, follow the instructions shown to you to correctly activate this additional safety measure. If you have any doubts or problems, please refer to my tutorial where I explain how to enable 2FA Fortnite.
