Rocket League is a fun game that you can enjoy with your friends, your spouse, or just anyone really. After a long day of work, you can sit on the couch, pick up your controller and just play a quick 5-minute game of Rocket League. Quite often, it’s not the win that matters but the experience you share with your friends or partner. However, it is also very important to ensure your Rocket League account is secure. And Epic Game recommends using Two-factor Authentication to prevent unauthorized access to your account. Here’s how to set up 2FA in Epic Games for Rocket League.

Scroll down to the section about Two-factor authentication. You will find three different types of 2FA authentication available - SMS, Third Party, and email. We recommend third-party authentication as it is generally more secure. Third-party apps also ensure your Epic Games account is not insecure if you lose access to your email.
You can also choose to make SMS or email authentication as the primary source of authentication. However, if you end up going to a remote location with poor connectivity, you might not be able to access your Epic Games / Rocket League account.
