Twitter Strengthens Password Reset Process, Login Security
Lose your Twitter password? Forget your Twitter password? Fear not: Twitter has updated the means by which users can regain access to their accounts if they're otherwise forgotten how to log into them.
According to a new blog post from Twitter, published Thursday, users will now be given more options for how they'd like to receive their password reset request. If you've previously associated your mobile phone number with your Twitter account, Twitter will allow you to send a password reset request directly to your phone via text message.
If that doesn't sound very appealing, or you haven't otherwise activated your phone within your Twitter account settings, then you can also have the service email the password reset details to whatever email address it is that Twitter has on file.
As an added bonus, Twitter will also allow you to input a new phone number or email address if you don't otherwise have access to the ones that Twitter presents.
"That way, whether you've recently changed your phone number, or are traveling with limited access to your devices, or had an old email address connected to your Twitter account, you've got options. We've also made it easier to reset a lost password on your iOS or Android device and have added some customized tips to help you strengthen your account security in the future," reads Twitter's blog post.
