Twitter makes SMS two-factor authentication exclusive to Twitter Blue users

Changes are afoot at Twitter, again: the social network owned by Elon Musk has announced that securing accounts via SMS-based two-factor authentication (2FA) is going to be an option exclusive to paying Twitter Blue users from this point on.

As per the blog post (opens in new tab) explaining the change, you won’t be able to set up 2FA with SMS after March 30 unless you pay for Twitter Blue. If you currently use this method to protect access to your account, you’ve got 30 days to either subscribe to Twitter Blue or switch to a different 2FA method, such as an authenticator app or a security key.
