How to keep your Twitter account secure – without paying

LOS ANGELES (AP) – Twitter has given users an ultimatum. If they don’t subscribe to a new premium service, they’ll lose a popular account security feature.

Alternate options for securing your account include authenticator apps or security keys. New owner Elon Musk has been trying to find ways to maximize profits at the company and Twitter Blue is one of them.
