Whenever available, it’s always a good idea to set up two-factor authentication (2FA) on all of your online accounts. This makes you have to go through a secondary security method to access your most important data. If you’re a brave player, this extra step could be the key to making sure someone doesn’t hack into your account and steal your credit card information. Here’s how to set up two-factor authentication in Valorant.

How to enable two-factor authentication on your Riot account for Valorant
To set up two-factor authentication on your Valorant Riot account, go to Account management page and login. Near the bottom of the page, just above Sign In, is an entry to enable your email for two-factor authentication (2FA). You must verify your email before you can do this, which you likely did when you first activated it. Click Enable, and that email account will shortly receive a message to set up 2FA. After clicking the button in the email, you are good to go.
When your two-factor authentication is ready, every time you go to sign in to your Riot account, you’ll be greeted with a message asking for a six-digit code. You will need to access your email, which will send you a new message from Riot with the numbers that you need to enter. And you’ll instantly be back in your account if you entered it correctly after just a quick side step.
If you’re using a computer that you don’t trust anyone else to have access to, you can check the “Stay signed in” box when entering your password to avoid this step in the future and still apply it to other devices you’re trying to sign into your account. This can go a long way to ensuring the security of your information and data.
