Twitter to fight hacking by boosting login security »
With the recent development of hackers breaking into the Twitter account of actor Ashton Kutcher and other incidents of security being compromised on the popular micro blogging firm, along with the possibility of user data including email addresses and encrypted passwords being compromised with, Twitter has come up with the “2FA” (Two Factor Authentication System) system to tackle any future breach.

The “2FA” system, which is also offered as an option by Google for its Gmail email system, blocks access from new devices or internet addresses, even when using the correct password, unless accompanied by a short numerical code that is sent separately to the account owner’s mobile phone.

This system enables an extra layer of safety to the services provided and alerts the true owner (through SMS to the registered number) whenever there is an unauthorized trespassing attempted. This demand for extra security was coming up for some time and with the introduction of this new technology, Twitter can now provide re-assurance to the users that their account won’t get hacked easily.
