The next steps are same as Twitter app mentioned above from step 7.

What Does Login Verification Do?

Turning on Login Verification adds additional security to your Twitter account. After enabling it whenever you try to login to Twitter the password is not going to be enough to get you in. You will also need to enter a code sent to your registered mobile number while you make a login attempt.

So even if someone has your password still they won’t be able to get into your account.

You can always turn off login verification whenever desired by following the same procedure but toggling off or unchecking Login verification option.
