League of Legends developer Riot Games wants its players to activate two-factor authentication (2FA) to help protect their accounts. The Taliyah "Very Cool" emote is part of an incentives campaign the developer has put together to reward players who add the security feature to their account. If players can get a free cosmetic for adding 2FA to their account, they'll be more likely to do it, or so the thinking goes. Then, once those players start showing off their special cosmetic in-game, other players will envy it and go activate 2FA for themselves.

Whether you're an early adopter or looking to play a bit of catch-up, here's how to add 2FA to your League of Legends account and unlock the Taliyah "Very Cool" emote.

How to Enable Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) in League of Legends

Two-factor authentication, also known as 2FA, is an information security system that permits access to an account only after the user attempting to log in has successfully presented two forms of authentication. In the case of League of Legends, that means whenever you log in you'll have to enter your username and password, then respond to an email prompt to the address associated with you Riot account.

To enable the security feature follow these steps;

  1. Log into your Riot account page
  2. Find the Two-Factor Authentication card
  3. Click the Enable button
  4. Open the email inbox associated with your Riot account
  5. Open the 2FA email from Riot Games (if you don't see it, check your spam folder, but make sure the email is from Riot before you click any links contained inside.)
  6. Click the Enable Two-Factor Authentication button

Once you've enabled 2FA, you'll receive your Taliyah "Very Cool" emote along with the "Keep it Safer" gun buddy in Valorant, a Rare Prismatic Chest in Legends of Runeterra and a Little Legend Egg in Teamfight Tactics.

If you like, you can also check a box the next time you log in that allows you to skip the 2FA process for the next 30 days.
