Twitter reset the password policy for all its users on Friday, allowing them to log in without having to provide proof of identity.
The company said it was the latest step to improve the security of the social network’s network.
Twitter says its users now have to verify their identities through their Twitter password and that if someone has already logged in with that password, it will not let them use the app.
The move comes after years of complaints about security on Twitter, which has been plagued by hackers and has been the subject of a number of high-profile hacks.
Twitter’s password policy allows users to set their passwords using a simple two-step process, but only allows them to sign in to the site without having verified their identity.
Twitter has said it has already improved its security by adding two-factor authentication for the password reset process and has said that people who have already logged into the site can log back in without using their password.
