After numerous high-profile hacks into its user accounts, Twitter has finally begun rolling out two-step verification to all users. Just like Google, the added security layer is still an optional feature that needs to be enabled by the user. Once enabled, a six-digit verification code will be sent to a user’s phone via SMS, and this code will need to be entered the next time the user logs in to the social networking site.
Twitter also added that Twitter applications that have been linked to a user’s account prior to the two-step verification should remain unaffected after enabling the two-step verification. To add devices or applications after securing a user’s account with two-step verification, the user can access the applications management page to generate a temporary one-time password for login purposes.
