Twitter for iOS and Android gets better security features

Following the launch of its SMS-based login verification system earlier this year, the social network announcd today a slew of improvements including an improved login verification system for the web, and now on iOS and Android.

The said update means users can now login on their mobile devices without relying on text messages. This also means that users will no longer be prompted to input their phone numbers upon login, making everything easy and faster. Twitter does this by using push messaging and in-app approvals.

Twitter's Alex Smolen decribes the unique secure authentication feature over at the company's official blog. You can read it here.

Furthermore, the update also brings the log-in verfication feature to other places that previously didn't support it. Even better are backup codes that Twitter is introducting along with the update. Now, users can use backup codes to login, in case their phone is a million miles away. To get started, just follow these steps:

  1. From the Me tab in the Twitter application, open Settings and then tap Security (Android users: you’ll need to tap your name before you can select Security)
  2. Turn on Login verification
  3. Store the generated backup code in a safe place. You will need to use this code if you need to access your account when you don’t have your phone.
  4. After you enroll in login verification, you’ll use the Twitter application to approve requests each time you sign in to twitter.com with your username and password.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
