Twitter increases users’ security.
The security of your Website Design and content is something that you naturally want to protect from unauthorised access no matter what line of business you are in; your social media accounts are no different!
Your Website Design and the content that you choose to place within directly represent both you and your company to every single one of your existing clients and a whole world full of potential clients on the other side of the computer screen. If this information was tampered with after a cyber-attack you could be left embarrassed at best and severely out of pocket at worst.
While our sites are extremely secure and individual website attacks are extremely rare your social media account is an extremely attractive target for criminals due to the fact that there are so many of them.
Twitter is a perfect example of this whereby cyber-attackers attempt and succeed to gain access to sensitive information on the main Twitter servers and potentially gaining access to your personal data. After a number of highly publicised cyber-attacks Twitter have now adopted a two-step authentication process that will be rolled out to all users in the very near future.
The two-step process involves checking the “require a verification code when I sign in” box that will be appearing on your Twitter account settings page soon. Following this request you will be asked to enter your mobile phone number and email address, confirm and you’re ready to go. Now, every time you attempt to login to your account Twitter will send you a six digit code via SMS to verify your identity.
This service is free and completely optional however if you wish to protect your social media profile and potentially your finances in the same way that we protect your Website Design and Content then we suggest you sign up as soon as the service is available.
