Fortnite is letting you give your friends a gift and making your account a little safer in the process

Epic Games released Fortnite’s new Valentine’s Day event with a new glider. But you can only get the Heartspan Glider as a gift from someone else. To send gifts, the gift giver must enable two-factor authentication (2FA) on their Epic Games account.

To enable 2FA on your account, go to fortnite.com/2fa where you can choose to authenticate through email or an authenticator app. Once you’ve activated two-factor authentication, log back into the game, and you’ll be able to gift the glider.

To send the gift, go to the Fortnite in-game store and select the glider. The glider is a featured item, costing 0 V-Bucks. Select the item, and choose to send it as a gift. Then you can select one recipient from your friends list. You’ll see the gifting screen where you can send your friend a special message.
