To do this, click on enable authenticator app.
A pop-up will show you the three simple steps you need to take to turn on the authenticator app.
To finish this process, you will need to install an authenticator app on your phone. In this case, you can use the Android app Google Authenticator. On IOS devices, the process will be a little different. Open the app and click “start.” Tap “Read a barcode.” Scan the QR code on your screen and tap “Add Account.”
Remember the phone’s code? For extra security, the code will be changed every so often. In the pop-up box, type the six-digit code and click OK. If you click “Activate,” you can make backup codes in case you lose access to your authenticator app. Click on Make Codes. Make sure to write these codes down somewhere safe, or you can click on “download codes” to save a text file with the codes on your computer to make sure the authenticator app is working right.
By hovering over your name in the top right corner and clicking “Sign Out,” you can sign out of your Epic Games account.

Choose your country’s code and enter your phone number, then click Send code. Check your phone to see if you have the code. Enter the confirmation code in the pop-up window and click “Activate.” Click “Close” to make sure it works.

When asked, enter the six-digit code that was sent to your phone and click “Continue.” Your Epic Games account is now set up to use SMS authentication. The third choice we give you is to use email authentication. Click on the button that says “Enable email authentication.” Check your email for the pop-up message with your two-factor code. The code you got in your email, and then click “Continue.” A window will pop up to let you know that your account has been set up for email authentication.
Click “Done” to make sure that the email authentication works. Move your cursor over your name in the top right corner and click on Sign Out.
