As we said in the past, two-step verification is an important tool to improve the privacy and security of online accounts. This system was implemented long ago by Google, Dropbox and Facebook, while Twitter activated it this week .
you do not remember, the two-step verification is to enter a mobile phone number to the account data to protect. When logging with conventional logging data (e-mail and password), the service sends a text message a single-use code that the user must enter on the web to verify their identity.
Enable two-step verification on Twitter is not difficult, although it can cause confusion because it is a function that new. The first thing they’ll do is log on to Twitter.com, display the options menu and enter “Settings” .
Once there go down until you find the section “Account Security” with the “Order a verification code when logging ‘. By default, the function is disabled and will require the entry of a phone number. This will click the link “Add a phone,” to appear in the description.
This step is simple: complete the required data on the screen, the saved and continue any extra instruction.
Afterward the configuration screen, look again what option “Require a verification code when logging ‘ and marked with the tittle .
service will send an SMS test to prove that the system works properly.
If the message they arrived safely simply tap “Yes” and enter your password to save changes.
From now on every time you log on to Twitter.com have to enter the verification code received by text message.
use Twitter client for desktop and mobile will have to meet a few more steps. As these applications are not prepared for the use of security codes, should create a “temporary password” to use instead of the original log. Clarify again that this is only for mobile apps and desktop clients, in the web version of Twitter have to keep using the same password as always.
To generate the key section go to “Applications” in the left pane of the settings.
simply tap button “Generate” and copy the key on the screen.
If not used within the first 60 minutes since its inception, password will no longer and will have to order a new one.
At first it seems a complicated process but it’s really easy. If you follow the steps described here will work fine. Anyway comments are open to your questions on this technique.
