Where to find settings on Twitter

To configure account security and privacy in the mobile app, tap your profile picture or the three-bar menu and select Settings and privacy at the bottom of the list. If on a computer, click More in the left-hand menu and select the same item.

Security settings: How to protect your Twitter account against hacking

Let’s start with the most important thing, preventing attackers from getting into your account and abusing it. The settings you need are located under Account.

How to change your password on Twitter

A long and strong password is a cornerstone of account security. You should also have a unique password for each service you use. Create such a password for Twitter and use it. To set up a new password, open Account and select Password.

How to prevent hackers from changing your Twitter password

If someone hacks your account, the first thing they’ll do is change the password to lock you out of it. To prevent this, configure Twitter to request additional information (phone number or e-mail address) whenever someone, including you, attempts to change your account password.

To prevent hackers from changing your password, under Account go to Security and check the Password reset protect box. Bear in mind this setting won’t help much if the phone number or e-mail address associated with your account can be found online.
