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:
- Click on your profile photo in the top-left side navigation
- Select Settings
- Go to the Security tab
- Go to Two-factor authentication
- 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.
