Twitter launches phone- based log-in system 'Digits'

social media Updated: Jan 23, 2015 11:06 IST

Twitter has launched its phone-number based password killer dubbed "Digits" that allows users to log into apps and services using just their phone, giving them a much needed break from remembering multiple passwords.

According to the Verge, the effort stands separate from Twitter's own app - insiders compare it to Vine; a separate but related product - but the interface will look familiar to anyone who's enabled two-factor authentication to log into a Twitter account.

Digits is part of Twitter's attempt at engaging more into product development, alongside a suite of mobile development tools called Fabric and a crash-tracking app called Crashlytics, the report said.

Twitter's VP of product for revenue Kevin Weil said as the platform grows, Twitter will not just be viewed as the consumer app, but as a a broader mobile services company.
