    Get a Free Month of Origin Access Courtesy of EA

    Secure your account to get a free month of Origin Access.

    EA wants you to secure your accounts. To help incentivize you into being secure, they will give you a free month of Origin Access once you enable two-factor authentication.

    While you probably should have had 2FA enabled for this and every other account already, this should help to give you that last little push you need to get it done. It's quick and typically painless, except if you somehow stub your toe.

    Epic Gives Free Fortnite Emote For Enabling Two-Factor Authentication

    If you have an Epic Games account to play Fortnite, chances are you were hit with an email at some point saying that someone tried to get into your account. Hell, I've been there and I have played the game maybe once in a blue moon. Even if you haven't been there, the theft of Fortnite accounts is huge. It's absolutely massive. People steal accounts and then sell them via third-party sites. And depending on how much has been unlocked on the account, or even if the stats are good, they can be...
