Twitterannounced an update on its two-factor authentication (2FA), the update will fully support third-party apps.
Twitter now lets you use third-party apps like Google Authenticator, Authy, and 1Password on your phone to generate numeric codes that you can enter in addition to your normal password to log in.
This will prove to be an important move taken by Twitter due to the fact that SMS-based two-factor authentication uses static codes. That means those codes could be intercepted in the event a hacker or some other malicious third-party has access to one or more alternative ways of viewing messages on a device other than having physical access to it. The method is more secure as third-party apps like Google Authenticator keep refreshing codes after every 30 seconds or so.
Twitter is still requiring that users provide a phone number to set up 2FA because it is used for account recovery.
In the top menu, click on your profile icon and then click on Settings and privacy. Click Edit to turn it off and then enable the Security app feature (below it) instead.
Twitter explains that the SMS code verification can now be turned off after initial set up.
Twitter users can enter their password, click on "Confirm" and then choose "Set up".
Enter your password and tap Verify. Here's how to set up a third-party app for verification on Twitter.
Eventually, you'll see a pop-up window displaying a QR code.
- Enter this code in the Security code text field in the pop-up window and click Done. For users who have enabled two-factor authentication for Twitter, the service previously enable login only via six-digit code sent to user's mobile number via SMS.
You can also disable this feature anytime you want.
