Earlier today, Twitter advised all users to change their passwords. Another violation of database? Not at all: this is in response to an error that left the passwords exposed in an internal Twitter log. Although the company says it has corrected the error and found no indication that the passwords were taken, the recommendation remains: change twitter password.
Fortunately, it is an easy process. In fact, you can do it directly from the mobile application if that’s where you do most of your tweeting.
Steps To Change Your Twitter Password On Android And iOS
- In the Android and iOS versions of Twitter, tap your profile photo (top left corner), then touch Settings and privacy> Account.
- If you are an Android user, then touch Password; in iOS, it’s Change password.
- Enter the old password, then the new one, then confirm the change.
How to change twitter password on PC
- The process is practically identical if you work in a browser: click on your profile, then on Settings and privacy> Password.
Please note that if you have two-factor authentication enabled for your account, you will not be able to sign in again until you have completed both steps (i.e., enter the new password and verify your identity by phone).
Considering how fast you can do this … is it safer than sorry?
