Non-Twitter Blue users have till Monday to migrate away from the company’s SMS two-factor authentication (2FA) mechanism, as the microblogging site will no longer allow non-Blue accounts to use text messages as a 2FA method.

Users will also be unable to enrol in the text message/SMS 2FA mode unless they are Blue customers.

The business made this remark last month, stating that non-Blue accounts with text message 2FA activated after March 20 “will have it disabled.”

The platform now supports three types of 2FA: text message, authentication app, and security key.

Non-Blue users were also asked to “consider utilising an authentication app or security key approach instead.”

Meanwhile, Twitter has stated that its Blue service with verification will cost Rs 650 per month on the web and Rs 900 on Android and iOS mobile devices in India.

In December of last year, the microblogging network reintroduced its Blue subscription service with verification, which costs $8 per month for Android users and $11 per month for iPhone owners globally.
