Twitter now supports third-party apps for two-factor authentication

Authenticate your tweets with Google Authenticator, 1Password, etc.

Twitter added two-factor authentication to all the way back in 2013, and while it works fine, it’s continued to lack support for third-party apps year after year. Thankfully, now at the end of 2017, this is finally changing.

Up until now, Twitter’s login verification process has only been able to send authentication codes via SMS. This is still more secure than not having two-factor authentication enabled at all, but  [Read More…]
