You will be brought to the menu to allow apps to be installed from unknown sources.

For devices running Android 8.0 (Oreo) and above, you need to allow it for whatever browser that is being used for downloading the app. All you need is to slide to switch to the on position.

Next, tap on the back button to return to the Fortnite installer, then tap on the Install button. The installation process of the Fortnite Launcher will take a few seconds. Once done, you will have to download more than 90MB game package file by tapping on the Install button. After the game is installed, it will need a larger asset file to download for the first launch.
