This one simple measure can secure your Twitter account from hackers!
On Wednesday, the Twitter accounts of several of the world's most famous people and companies have been hacked in a major security breach.
People worldwide must be concerned after the recent hacking incident of the High-profile Twitter accounts, including those of Barack Obama and Elon Musk. Many security experts have been calling it the worst hacking incident in Twitter’s recent history.
Tweets published on the accounts of Apple, Elon Musk, Bill Gates, Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Jeff Bezos, and many others appear to be pushing a Bitcoin fraud.
Therefore, to prevent hacking, everyone should turn on two-factor authentication (2FA) on their Twitter account.
What is 2FA, and how can you activate it?
Two-factor authentication (2FA) is an additional Safety layer for a Twitter account. Instead of entering a password to log in, a person must also have to enter a code or use a security key. This extra step helps to make sure that only the owner of the account can access his/her account.
After the feature is enabled, the user will need a password, along with a secondary login method. The method can either be a code, a login confirmation through an app, or a physical security key to log in to the account.

Steps to Turn Off Two-Factor Authentication
After you successfully enable the two-factor authentication for your account, you will also need to use a temporary password to log in to Twitter on other devices that require you to enter your Twitter password. You won’t be able to log in using your usual username and password combination.
