Twitter still suggested users to put strong passwords to keep their accounts secure. Twitter Authentication will be an option for users and they require a confirmed email address and a verified phone number. After a quick test for confirmation a verification code will be send via sms to their phone number, they have to enter the code and access their account. Unlike, Google’s system code will be send every time users sign into Twitter through its website.

Twitter Authentication

Twitter was bit late & they had to pay the cost as Last month, hackers spooked into some media organizations accounts and falsely reported that Barack Obama has been injured after two blasts at the White house.

Google has already launched its Two-Factor Authentication in February, 2011 and Facebook introduced Two-Step Login approval in May, 2011. Now, Twitter has joined the race with its Two-Factor Authentication stepping its security measures following a series of high-profile breaches by hackers.
