  1. 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.

  2.    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

  3. 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…

  4. I use Google Voice for all my mobile needs. I give it out to every service that asks for my mobile number, and then, if they give it out to spammers, I can easily filter them out.

    But I can't use my GV number for Twitch - it reports "only mobile phone numbers may be used".

    I do not give out the number that goes to my SIM card. It's not necessarily going to be the same number if I switch providers, and literally every text and call I get through it and not GV is spam, because I never…

  5. a very useful feature for twitch, cince it has a follower cap of 2000, would be a section for the people we follow and watch. while we have a "notifications" section for who we want to get notified of, we dont have a section that easily allows us to unfollow inactive channels we no longer watch. something as simple as having it in the same format of the notifications but just replace the on/off slider with a "follow/unfollow" button. making it easier to manage and clear out all the people who dont stream anymore or we dont watch as often.

  7. Hi, I just contacted PayPal about a fraud against me.I had contacted this site for help with affiliate status and receiving donations. Which would be very useful to me given my social status.

    Can't I have affiliate status given the need and collaboration?

  8. This may require a bigger team of course to implement, but I just signed up for a freelance website and the sign up process, is actually an application to use this site. I was required to verify my identity via uploading a photo of my ID AND a verifying statement such as a paystub, utility bill, etc. And also address verification (or at least a mailing/billing address) which should be added to the account anyways since payment information is stored for subscriptions.

    I know that twitch has a younger population so that may not work, but it may also be…

  9. Many sites and developers will request ridiculously over-broad permissions when establishing a new connection. At present this can be worked around by altering the URL to trim excessive permissions, but is a hassle for sites that require re-authing every few days.

    Adding checkboxes to each of the requested permissions to allow account-holders to remove over-requested (data-scraping) permissions and unsafe permissions would alleviate this greatly.

    The only risk would be the third-party site erroring if an actually-used permission is deselected by the end user, while enhancing privacy prevention and user control to slap away over-invasive marketing data collection attempts.

  11. Right now i can't chat on any twitch cause its asking for me to enter a mobile number. and despite my repeated attempts at getting SOMEONE to disable this stupid targeting on my accounts, nobody is listening. And no I'm not giving my mobile number. u have my verified email and i shouldn't be scrutinized to enter a mobile number. If you need mobile numbers on my account then i'm not using twitch period. and unsubbing from everything and moving to another platform. the fact you single me out for using twitch-tools.de and a vpn shows you don't care about…

  12. I noticed when attempting to login in to my Twitch account with the wrong password an error message stating "That password was incorrect. Please try again" appears. Also, in the case where there is no existing username the page displays, "This username does not exist." This is bad! Never do this! When the username or password is incorrect the page should display "Username or Password was incorrect. Please try again" or something to the same extent. The reason why the to warning should never be separate is a security issue. If an attacker were to try to get into someone's…

  13. 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…

  14. Don't send me a "successful log-in" email. There's no need for the email when 2-factor authentication is turned on. I know I logged in and you know that it was me that logged in.

  15. Currently Twitch denies streamers who are in some way related to the Cannabis industry from being Partnership as the use of cannabis isn't acceptable for the Partnership programme.
    With Cannabis legal in most states and the TOS enforcing that these streamers who are consuming cannabis are in a legal state (where it may be recreational or medicinal) it seems discriminatory to prevent these streamers from being partnered for this sole reason, especially since a lot of larger streamers who smoke have been given partner despite them smoking (I'd assume for the sheer reason that they have a large following)

    Honestly…

  16. Create a better way for old people using the app or have a human suport to help new users on how to create a new account. I have did a tutorial it my self that can be accessed here http://djrudphd.com.br/entrartwitch/ but I gess that is not enough . I guess a that a phone number should be get automaticaly when on a form starts to be filled and after it be sent, Twitch could sent login infos in an SMS with login infos or a button or a link to do the first login where user can fill other options…
