Twitter Adds 2-Step Confirmation to Login

Twitter is adding an additional security measure to users' accounts in an attempt to stop unauthorized logins. Twitter said in a blog post Wednesday that users will be able to sign up in a login verification program. For individuals who sign up, Twitter will send a six-digit code using a text message every time they sign in to Twitter.com. In addition their username and password, users will have to enter the code as well to log in. Microsoft, Google and Facebook already let two-step verification as an alternative. Twitter has been condemned for not having this option, particularly following latest breaches of Twitter accounts belonging to major news organizations and other companies. Unlike the other Internet corporations, though, Twitter will ask users for a verification code every time they log out and log back in, even if it's from the similar computer. The others permit you to go around that if you are using the same computer frequently. Microsoft started offering two-step verification last month. Facebook and Google have presented them longer. Twitter users can sign up for two-step verification in their account settings. To do this, Twitter will ask for either a genuine and confirmed email address linked with the account or a phone number that's been verified. Even as the two-step verification procedure adds an additional security layer to Twitter logins, Twitter said users should still take common safety measures. That includes choosing complex passwords that are distinctive to their Twitter account, and not clicking on doubtful email links.
