We previously covered how to add https to your Facebook account for better security. Earlier it was announced that Twitter has set up a similar feature for its service and here’s how to enable it in Settings.
1. Log into your Twitter account and click the dropdown menu for your profile and click on Settings.
2. Then under you Account Settings scroll down and check the box next to Always use HTTPS and make sure you click Save after that.
3. After clicking Save, you’ll be prompted to re-enter your Twitter password then click on Save Changes.
4. At the top of the screen you should see a message that your settings have been successfully saved.
5. Now anytime you log into your Twitter account you’ll see HTTPS before in the URL in the address bar.
This will help protect your Twitter sessions, especially when you’re using a public Wi-Fi Network. Unlike the Facebook HTTPS flaw, your session will always be protected no matter where you go while logged into Twitter.
However keep in mind if you’re using a 3rd-party Twitter client, it may not support HTTPS. If you use the Official Twitter clients for iPhone, iPad, and iPad touch – you are protected.
Check out the official Twitter blog post for more on the HTTPS feature.
