  1. With the ongoing outbreaks of follow and hate bots "raids", the creation of multiple accounts is simply too easy to abuse on the platform. Creating an account on Twitch does not require an authentic email address before using its services: watching content, following a streamer, sending messages in streamers chats, modifying the account details, etc.

    Many streamers are being harrassed by bots and "IP Grabbers" by:
    - Mass following streamers with inappropriate names and account details;
    - Mass spamming chats with obscene languages and characters (ex: racism, homophobia, transphobia, nazi, etc..);
    - Having extensions on their user profile which allows…

  2. I went to change my password today and had my password manager generate a random 100 character password. Twitch said "That password is too easy to guess" and points me at a page that just says it needs to be "at least 8 characters long". I get the same error with length 90 and 80. Through trial and error, apparently 71 is the maximum usable length.

    It's unclear why there's a maximum limit, so I'd recommend removing that. Otherwise, the error message should indicate what the actual problem is.

  3. First of all, good job on implementing non-Authy, non-SMS 2FA!

    That being said, there's still a major hole in your 2FA implementation, and that's requiring a user to set up SMS authentication before they can set up other forms of 2FA. Unless I've missed something huge, whenever I try to set up 2FA on Twitch, I get directed to put in my phone number first. There's no prompt I can use to skip this step.

    This is completely counter to how a lot of other sites do 2FA, where SMS authentication is an option, not a requirement. You can completely…

  4. If you want a username on twitch, which nobody else has, the best way to get it is to try to change it to that everyday and hope and pray that one day in 6 months it becomes available. Surely there can be a better way to handle this, I've seen other games or sites where there's a tool to see when names become available or they'll give you a name shortly after it becomes available

  5. re: https://blog.twitch.tv/en/2021/09/29/securing-your-chat-with-phone-and-email-verification/

    The FAQ suggests alternatives to mobile verification, VOIP, et al., are not good enough for verification; i.e., too cheap to spoof.

    I'm an affiliate in long standing, can that fact not be verification that I can be trusted not to make duplicate accounts? Twitch has my tax ID, I'm pretty sure that they're pretty sure who I am. I do use Authy (and other online services) for verification, but I do not use cell networks ("mobile").

    It makes little sense that Twitch has approved Us affiliates to represent their Terms of Service well enough to pay us, yet…

  8. An option to disable email verification when signing in to new locations. If you use the account, like me, only to write chat messages, it's not so security-relevant that I have to constantly enter a code. For security reasons, you can write down a big warning that says that you shouldn't deactivate it.

  9.    I am suggesting an idea which would utilize having set up 2FA using a phone number to count for chat verification as well.
       I was in a raid but when I got to the destination streamer I couldn't send messages in the chat even though I had followed that channel.  I got a message saying that I couldn't chat because my account wasn't verified.  I clicked on the little info icon, and it explained it and I was able to get into chat fine.
       I was confused though, because I have had my Twitch account set up with 2FA using

  10. I am in agreement with people requesting a reduction on the time before you're able to change your username. Even if i have to wait 2 months before i can change it to something else, I've tested out my current username, as of posting this, and have discovered i hate it. If you could revert a user name change in the first 24 hours at least, even if i had to wait 2 months until i try again, it would solve a lot of people's problems with it. I also hate how there's no way of testing out a username…

  13. My YouTube channel was unlink, but it was working completely fine before. I didn't log out or anything of the sort. It was just working the other day, and only stopped working today. IDK what happened, but now I can't relink it. It only shows up with "Make sure the email you used for Twitch is the same as your google account." If anyone has any ideas or know how to fix it, pls let me know.

  14. Apps on Windows 10/11 use Web Authentication Broker (special built-in UWP app) in order to securely authenticate a user.
    Unfortunately it still uses IE based web view. Causing this
    https://user-images.githubusercontent.com/2365592/145680353-6e0862a1-5251-4ee5-bf79-803a8e6f5a56.png
    You must add a special check and allow to open auth view in IE.

    How to reproduce
    Install https://www.microsoft.com/store/productId/9NN46KBBHL2W
    Try to authenticate

    Expected behavior
    Twitch is opened in Web Authentication Broker and allows to authenticate

  15. EN: I want every change to contract to be sent to the email address associated with the Affiliate / Partner account. For example, when an e-mail or other data has been changed in the contract, information should be sent to the e-mail assigned to the account. Streamers are losing money through data leaks, as I am because someone has changed my email to make a payment and Twitch is not willing to do anything about it or give me my money back.

  16. When linking your twitch to your discord, it auto gives subs to subs that have linked their account, now what would be good is that if this also could happen with VIP's!

  20. I tried to reach twitch support, I couldn't find it, but it would be good if you fix the phone verification system as soon as possible because I previously logged into my account with my phone, then I closed that account and opened another account. I want to verify the account, but I can't, please help, I'm starting to broadcast slowly. love
