How to change your Twitter password

How to change your Twitter password

A technical problem has caused the readability of Twitter user passwords in readable text, which is why the social network advises all users to immediately change their passwords. If you don't know how to do it, here is a guide that allows you to easily change your Twitter password.

Regularly changing passwords online is always a good habit to keep your personal information safe, but above all now, following the Twitter recommendation. The Social maintains that its 330 million users could be affected by a technical problem that made it possible to make some passwords visible in a readable text on their internal IT system.

The problem has already been solved, but the damage may have already been done and those passwords may have ended up in the wrong hands. If someone steals your Twitter password, they will not only be able to potentially influence your online reputation and replace you in front of your contacts, but any other online account that uses the same password may be vulnerable.

We recommend that when changing the password, choose a complex password that is not easy to hack. It is also possible to add the two-factor verification to your Twitter account, to ensure an additional level of security: we will be required to enter a code sent via SMS every time you log in to your account.
