The Basics Login verification

At Twitter, we take your account security very seriously. To minimize the risk of unauthorized parties gaining access to your account, you can add a two-factor authentication process. This means that when you sign in to your account there is an extra check to make sure that it’s really you.

There are two ways to increase your login security:

  1. Enroll in login verification by adding a mobile phone number to your account. You will be asked to enter a verification code that will be sent to your mobile phone via an SMS message each time you log in to Twitter.
  2. You can use your Twitter for iOS or Android apps to enroll in login verification. When enrolling through a mobile app, login requests will be sent directly through in-app notifications. Also as a backup, the in-app login verification method will generate a code that you can keep in a safe place and use to log in to your account in the event that your phone is lost or inaccessible.
