On Twitter? Change Your Settings

By: Gini Dietrich | March 20, 2011 | 

Twitter FINALLY has created HTTPS settings.

If you’re on Twitter, I recommend (if you haven’t already) getting on there and changing your settings stat.

This will encrypt your account information when you’re tweeting on an unsecured. WiFi network.

1. Log on to

2. In the upper right-hand corner, where you see your Twitter handle, click the triangle and scroll to settings.

3. Click settings and scroll to the bottom.

4. Click the box next to “Always use HTTPS.”

5. Click save.

6. You’ll have to re-enter your password.

Then it’s complete!

    Anyone know how the this is affected by the use of twitter clients like hootsuite? I never use

  • ginidietrich

    @dannystarr You should change the settings on because it affects all third-party apps.
