Twitter generates temporary password for apps and services; learn how to use

Twitter allows you to create a temporary account access password. Available for iPhone (iOS) and Android phones, the function is ideal for linking the profile with web services and other applications without the primary password being exposed.

After being accessed, the temporary credential is available for only one hour, and after that it expires so it will not be used again if it has been picked up by hackers. Learn how to create a temporary password in the following tutorial.
