Enable two-factor authentication

You can add extra security to your account by enabling two-factor authentication to verify your identity when you sign into Threads.

To enable two-factor authentication:

  1. Click on your profile photo in the top-left side navigation
  2. Select Settings
  3. Go to the Security tab
  4. Go to Two-factor authentication
  5. Click Add to add an authenticator app to your account

Once you have two-factor authentication set up, you can also add a security key (like Yubikey or Google Titan) for a more convenient way to verify your identity.

You can also add your phone number to your account to help us recover it for you if you lose access to it.
