Text message-based multiple validation on Twitter is only available to Blue subscribers

USA: All Twitter users without a Blue subscription have text-based two-factor authentication (2FA) disabled. The social media site explained in a blog post that this was done to prevent inappropriate use of the feature.

Starting March 20, only Blue subscribers will be able to use text-based 2FA. Even accounts with legacy verification will no longer have access to it.

Twitter has changed significantly since Elon Musk took over. In an effort to attract more users and generate more revenue, the platform is now gradually making some features available only to Blu subscribers.

However, the most recent adjustment is reportedly a response to spammers abusing the feature. However, Twitter did not elaborate on the exact reason for the action.

The additional layer of security offered by Twitter's social media platform is 2FA. When using 2FA users are required to enter a code or security key in addition to their password. Twitter makes sure that only you can access your account by adding this extra step.

Once this feature is activated you will need your login credentials in addition to a secondary code, a login confirmation, or a physical security key.

Three two-factor authentication options are currently available on Twitter: Security Key, App Authentication, and Text Message. The platform claimed in a blog post that bad actors have long been abusing phone number/text-based 2FA.

So only Blue subscribers will be able to use this method. Twitter has banned non-Blue users from signing up for the text messaging/SMS 2FA method since February 15.


Users who are already registered for text-based 2FA who are not using the Blue service have 30 days to cancel their enrollment and switch to a different method (such as an authentication app or security key). There will be time.

The company said that after March 20, 2023, we will not allow non-Twitter Blue customers to use text messages as a 2FA method. This method will automatically be disabled for accounts that still have it enabled.
