Twitter is doing away with two-factor authentication (2FA) via SMS messages for non-subscribers.
Users can increase the security of their online accounts beyond passwords by using 2FA, which verifies the identity of the person logging in.
Users may receive a code through text message or utilize an authenticator app as common techniques.
Yet on Saturday, the Twitter Support account stated that starting on March 20, text-message authentication would only be available to Twitter Blue subscribers.
a text message or two Users using 2FA also got an in-app notification advising them to stop using the method before the deadline if they don’t want to lose access to their accounts.
Elon Musk, the owner and CEO of Twitter, tweeted that the authenticator app was safer and will continue to be free.
