How to Turn on Two-Factor Authentication for Twitter

Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) is a great security tool as it makes it harder for attackers to break into your account. Most apps make it pretty easy to turn on 2FA, and Twitter is no exception. Here’s how to enable it.

To begin, you’ll need to be logged in to your Twitter account, either on the Twitter website or in the Twitter app for Android, iPhone, or iPad. The process is almost identical for both, except for the starting point.
