Twitter announced that it’s likely to empower two-factor authentication to secure consumers’ accounts by simply using safety keys to log into. Presently, an individual can log into Twitter with their safety key but will have to get a third-party two-factor authentication installed as a backup.
Twitter has announced it is planning to implement this safety measure but has not shared any advice on implementing it to consumers on its social website.
Protecting your account on all of your devices is important. We’ve updated two-factor authentication so you can now log in with your physical security key on Android and iOS, like on desktop. More on how to set up this added security for your account: https://t.co/c7hff75zQd

The user links the security secret to their PC; if the browser issues a struggle for logging into, the safety cryptographically authenticates your accounts and assists you log into.
Twitter also declared that it would also enable one user to use several security keys. Until today, users were limited to using one security secret. In December, Twitter declared the service for safety keys for two-factor authentication allowed its cellular app users. The precise deadline hasn’t yet been shared with Twitter detailing the execution of the security attributes.
