Fortnite: Website shows you how much your skins are worth - but Epic warns of this

How many V-Bucks have you already spent in total on skins in Fortnite ? A question that will surely concern many players. A website wants to show you this, but Epic explicitly warns against it.

This is what it's about: The streamer Ali “SypherPK” Hassan shared a picture on Twitter that shows how much V-Bucks he has spent on Fortnite skins. The streamer has already invested a proud 1,575,500 V-Bucks in his locker. He knows the exact number from a third-party provider who gives you the opportunity to find out these numbers.

Under the tweet from SypherPK, however, Epic warns that such third-party providers should not be used. They even recommend that you change your password after using this service.

Anyone who uses third-party providers should change their password

What service is this about? The website is meant here. This website shows you various information about Fortnite. Here you can see, among other things, which device the Fortnite pros play with and how the map has changed over the years.

Recently, however, there is also the possibility to show your locker and have it rated. To do this, you have to link your Epic account to the website so that it has access to your skins. You will then be shown how much V-Bucks you have invested in the game in total.

Where is the problem? Epic warns on Twitter that there is currently no official tool to display these statistics. So you are accessing third-party software here. That's exactly what Epic doesn't recommend. They even advise that you should change your password and activate 2-factor authentication .

In general, you allow such third-party providers access to your account. This makes it much easier to hack and in the worst case you could lose everything you have achieved in your Fortnite account.

How is the community reacting? The streamer SypherPK also shared Epic's response shortly after its first post and warned its community. You should all change the password when they have rated their locker.

Other members of the Fortnite community are demanding that Epic introduce a similar system. Then you would not have to resort to third-party providers. Still others claim that they have been using the website for years and have never been hacked. 

So it is with Skins in Fortnite: Basically, the Fortnite Battle Royale is free. However, you can buy cosmetic items such as skins for V-Bucks, the in-game currency. Often it is not the value of the skin that is special, but rather the rarity. Some skins only appeared in the shop for a short time and are therefore particularly rare.
