Twitter To Stop Two-Factor Security For Non-Blue Users
Twitter is going stop SMS-based security feature for non-Blue users.
The change will come into effect from March 20, the company informed.
Twitter says the change is done to avoid security threat from bad actors.
SMS-based security is deemed to be vulnerable to SMS cloning and swapping.
Twitter is giving non-Blue subscribers 30 days to change the security method.
Twitter offers three security methods - Text-based, security key and authentication app.
Twitter will only offer 2FA using authentication app or security key method.
Security experts are not pleased with the decision but feel it could help avoid account hacking.
Twitter Blue is now available in countries like India where it costs Rs 900 per month on mobile.
