Twitter to implement two-factor authentication

In the wake of recent cyber attacks, Twitter may have two-factor authentication to increase its security, according to media reports.

According to a job advertisement first spotted by The Guardian, Twitter is looking for a software engineer to fit in to its product security division.

One of the responsibilities for the new engineer will be to “design and develop user-facing security features, such as multi-factor authentication and fraudulent log-in detection”. The job listing also says that the new engineer’s work will “directly impact the security of hundreds of millions of Twitter users”.

Also, lot of companies have been gradually introducing multi-factor authentication in the past few years. These include Google, Facebook, Yahoo, Amazon Web Services, Dropbox, Blizzard’s Battle.Net, and Valve’s Steam.
