How to Get the “Keep It Safer” Gun Buddy in Valorant

Protect your account while you're at it!

Two-factor authentication (2FA) helps keep your online accounts safer by providing an extra layer of security on top of your normal login methods, and you should definitely be using it wherever and whenever possible. With how often data breaches occur, and passwords get stolen, 2FA helps ensure that your accounts are near-impossible to hijack. Earlier this year, Riot Games launched two-factor authentication security for all Riot accounts, and are now rewarding players who activate the service with some extra in-game goodies for their games. So, why not earn yourself a little Valorant swag and help keep your Riot account extra protected at the same time? It’s a no-brainer, really. Here’s how to activate two-factor authentication and get the “Keep It Safer” gun buddy in Valorant.
