Rocket League now requires having two-factor authentication (2FA) activated on your Epic Games Store account before allowing you to engage in trading items with other players. The change was introduced in Patch v1.93 and also affects players who own the Steam version of the game.
Luckily, activating Rocket League 2FA is a relatively simple process, so you'll be able to get back to trading fairly quickly. First, you need to log in to your Epic Games Store account. If you go through the official website, you'll then need to hover over your username in the top-right corner and select Account from the drop-down menu.
You can also left-click on your username in the launcher and select Manage Account, which will open a browser page and take you to the same section. Left-click on the Password & Security tab, then scroll down. You'll see three 2FA options and you can choose whichever suits you best to trade in Rocket League.
Authenticator App requires you to enter a code found in mobile apps like Google Authenticator or Authy. SMS Authentication sends the security code to your phone via text message, while email makes sure you get it on your email of choice, as explained in an official article. You'll then need to enter the security code when logging in.
If you previously owned Rocket League on Steam but chose to use a shell (platform) account when it became free-to-play and moved to the Epic Games Store, you'll need to upgrade to a full Epic account to continue trading, Psyonix has confirmed. Both players involved in a trade need to have two-factor authentication enabled for it to go through.
