Twitter has revealed in its latest transparency report that only 2.3% of all active accounts have enabled at least one method of two-factor authentication (2FA) between July and December 2020. 2FA is an extra security layer for Twitter accounts that requires users to use a security key or enter a code together with their passwords to log into their accounts.

This ensures that only the account owner can sign in and blocks malicious takeover attempts which try to guess, use stolen credentials, or reset the password.While some high-profile Twitter accounts were successfully hijacked last year despite having 2FA enabled after attackers gained access to internal admin systems, you should still toggle on 2FA to be protected against less-sophisticated hacking attempts.
