Tips on staying anonymous and secure on Twitter

  • If you choose an alias, you should share it with anyone, and do not share private information about the activity of this account in general, so that you are not easily identified or associated with the account.
  • Disable the “location’ option and don’t give Twitter the authority to access your location.
  • Don’t authorize Twitter to access your contacts list.
  • Don’t authorize or give Twitter access to your private social media accounts like Facebook and Instagram.
  • Take extreme caution when dealing with private messages, do not click on links sent by people you do not trust, do not give information to anyone you do not know.
  • Do not click on any link sent to you either through private messaging or through the mention feature
  • Twitter encrypts the connection between you and the site, but it is always preferred to use a VPN for a secured connection, especially when using public networks.
  • Use an e-mail address that does not give away references to your real personality.
  • For stronger protection of the account, and to quickly retrieve it in the case of any malfunction, it is always preferred to use the two way verification feature and add your phone number within the site settings.
  • Disable the "allow people to find you by email address or phone number” feature
  • Due to the large number of checkpoints and surprise raids, it is always preferred to log out of the application when you are not using it on your phone or any other device.
  • Do not use your Twitter account on other devices owned by other people. Should that happen, make sure that you are logged out when you are done.
  • Always make sure that the site from which you log in is the official Twitter website and that secure port is (HTTPS)
  • Choose a password that is difficult to guess.
  • When dealing with e-mail, do not click on any link sent to you by unknown senders, and do not fill out requests from unfamiliar sources.
  • Always check the devices that can access your Twitter account. If you notice a device that you did not authorize to access your account, log the device out immediately and change your password.
