Require additional information to reset your Twitter password

If your email address or phone is compromised, a hacker might attempt to access your Twitter account by resetting your password. In order to catch any attempts to do this, you should set additional requirements for requesting a password reset. You can set up your account so that you have to enter a code sent to both your phone and your email instead of one or the other, which adds a layer of security. To do this:

  • Go to your account.
  • Check the box next to Password Reset Protection under Security.
  • Add your email address and phone number.
