Hello Friends I wan to share with you that Twitter finally launched two-factor authentication to help you keep your account secure. Here is what you need to know that how you can set it up and how to secure twitter account.

If you want to add an extra layer of security to your Twitter account, there are few seconds out of the day and setup two-step verification on your twitter account. The added layer of security requires you to enter your password, and then a subsequent six-digit access anytime you try to log into Twitter. The short code is sent via text message to your cell phone, which means that any would-be hackers would need to not only crack your password, but to also have physical possession of your cell phone at the time of login in twitter account.

Setting up Twitter’s two-factor authentication requires you to use a computer and visit your security settings page. You can also log in to your Twitter account on Twitter.com, navigate to Settings, followed by clicking on the Security & privacy link to the left to the page.

Check the box next to “Send login verification requests to (my number).” If you don’t already have a phone number attached to your account, follow the prompts to add one. With the box checked, a series of prompts letting you know that the service is about to be enabled, and that it requires you to connect your mobile phone number to your Twitter account.

Conversely, you can option to have Twitter send the verification code to your smartphone via the official Twitter app. But I did advise to use your phone number instead, as you can easily replace a lost phone and regain access to your phone number. Accessing the app you had installed on a lost device does not offer the same convenience. If you face any problem leave a comment for help:)

You’ll receive a test text message on your cell phone, verifying that you have the right number added to your account. After indicating that you received the message, you are done setting up two-factor authentication on your twitter account.

The next time you try to log into the website, you’ll use the same password you have now, but after entering it you’ll be prompted to enter the code sent to your phone.
