Twitter is one of the most popular social networks in the world. Basically, the social network allows you to post and interact with messages (known as tweets). Twitter is getting a lot better and smarter over time with new features and changes.

If you now have Twitter on your iPhone, you can easily enable two-factor authentication to your account to make sure everything is safe. Basically, two-factor authentication will add an extra layer of security to your Twitter account, meaning that you will be asked to enter a verification code every time you attempt to log into Twitter.

In reality, two-factor authentication is not new, as it has existed for a while on Facebook or Google Mail. Once you have enabled two-factor authentication for your Twitter account, the app will provide a backup code if you happen to lose access to your device.

In this step-by-step guide, we will walk you through the steps to enable two-factor authentication for your Twitter account on iPhone.

Step one: First off, you need to launch the Twitter app from your home screen. Once you are in, make sure that the Me tab is selected before moving ahead
