Twitter’s attempt to improve security failed because the user did not use two-factor authentication

Twitter’s attempt to improve security failed because the user did not use two-factor authentication

Over the years, Twitter has faced various security issues related to its users. In order to highlight and consolidate its growing user base, Twitter introduced a two-factor integration method to fill this gap to get security from the user side. This method is expected to be adopted by a large number of users with advanced security settings.

However, the results were disappointing, as recent Twitter statistics showed that only 2.3% of users chose one of the two authentication factors that Twitter severely cracked down on. To their great disappointment, they boasted that the security features that solve all problems were not widely accepted by users, and they chose to use the old authentication mode as an option.

Twitter has taken action and explained how and why users need not only the initial two-factor authentication based on SMS but also the second and third authentication. Authentication methods and more effective and efficient protection of your Twitter account. They further claimed that sim swapping caused multiple accounts to be hacked, especially the CEO’s account.

The authentication method we use is designed to prevent all hacking and phishing attempts because statistics show that when all three factors are involved, the probability of a user account being hacked is zero or negligible.

As sad as it sounds, only 2% of users who enable authentication methods do not allow Twitter to lower morale because the number of authentication processes they allow has increased compared to previous years. The 2% who adopt the new authentication method are the most vulnerable to hacker attacks, including celebrities and influencers, who not only have valuable brand information in their accounts but also have years of hard work to achieve their favorite status.

Although this number looks small, it is expected to grow steadily as awareness of spam and phishing and fear of hackers will force people to authenticate. Or, if things get tough, Twitter can force authentication.
