How to Redeem a Code in Fortnite

If you redeem a Fortnite code, you can get some cosmetic items just in a couple of mouse clicks. Fortnite codes are 12-digit or 16-digit combinations of numbers to activate them in the Epic games or PS Store client, and they are a great way of getting some exclusive items in the game.

So, a user came to us with the following question:

I recently received a Fortnite code and decided to activate it, but error 19007 stopped me. The problem is that I have a code (example): 0000-0000-0000, but 0000-0000-0000-0000 is necessary. I tried to activate in the launcher and on the site. Help!

And after a while we found a worthy solution to this issue:

There are digital activation codes for different gaming devices. In your case, most likely, this is a code for PS4 and you can activate it only on PS4. But the PCs need the 16-digit Fortnite code format.
