Washington: Twitter has reportedly introduced a friend finding function and two-step verification to Digits, a developer-facing service launched last fall that offers a way to integrate a simpler, password-free login option into third-party mobile applications.
According to TechCrunch, the two-step verification introduced by Twitter will add another layer of security for those who want to take advantage of the newly added feature. Digits already provided a secure way for users to log into apps by using their phone numbers instead of a username and password combination.
The other new feature will allow app developers to create a social graph in their apps by uploading a user's address book to help users find others they know already using the same application, or be notified when their friends join.
The new features are available on Digits , said Twitter.
