Twitter tips for account security

There are a few steps you can take to keep your account safe.

  • Change your password on Twitter and on any other service where you may have used the same password.

  • Use a strong password that you don’t reuse on other websites.

  • If possible, enable login verification, also known as two-factor authentication. This is the single best action you can take to increase your account security.

  • Use a password manager to make sure you’re using strong, unique passwords everywhere.
