Social Business Tip of the Day: Twitter Two-Step Verification

May 28, 2013

Twitter has introduced a new verification feature, after Burger King, Jeep and the Associated Press have all had their Twitter accounts hacked in the last year. Considering Twitter handles are hacked regularly, you should take a few minutes to set up the new verification system:

First off, you’ll have to:

Once that’s out of the way:

1. Go to your 

 on twitter.com and check the “Require a verification code when I sign in” box.

2. When prompted, click Okay, send me a message.

3. If you receive our verification message, click Yes (Note: you’ll have to enter your      password). Once this is set up, when you log in to your account on twitter.com, a six digit code will be sent via SMS to your phone. You’ll have to enter the code when prompted and then you can sign in. Obviously, if you’ve saved your password and don’t log out often, you won’t have to do this. But if you do log out often (or get kicked out because of a browser update), you’ll have to move forward with entering the randomly generated 6-digit code to log-in each time.

For more on this AND to learn about logging into Twitter on other devices and apps (which has an additional few steps).
