How To Verify Fortnite Game Files

Sometimes, broken or missing files can throw errors in-game and prevent you from playing them. Verifying your files will force your client to scan your install directory and fix the broken files or install any file that may be missing.

Here’s how to verify Fortnite files:

  • Go to Fortnite in your Library and click on the three dots.
  • Now select Verify in the drop-down navigation
  • Based on the game size it may take a few minutes to verify all your files. Once it’s done, click Launch to start your game.

Verify Your Email Address

Generally, you are prompted to verify your email address when you first create your Epic Games account. In case you haven’t done that or maybe you have changed your email address, you will have to verify it then.

In order to verify the email address in your Fortnite (Epic Games) account, follow these steps:

  • Log into your account page.
  • In the yellow notification at the top of the screen, click click here to resend.
  • Check your email inbox and find the verification email. (If you don’t see the email, please check your spam folder)

Your email address is now verified in Fortnite.
