  1. I would really like to see a Face ID option to login to your Twitch Account through the app on iOS devices & the option to enable or disable Face ID for extra security.

  3. Me and like many other people have been on this site for years building our stream and community’s. They one day we get to become affiliates, so we set up our 2-Factor Authentication but then we get locked out of our account and r unable to return because a bug doesn’t send sms code to our phones so we can log in the Authy never works so, the idea is to fix this so we won’t have to start new accounts.

  4. The recycle program needs a massive overhaul.

    There are far to many people waiting on unused usernames that are not released in a timely fashion.

    I have been watching two names for years now. One is simply completely inactive with zero information on the profile and has never followed anyone, for years. That account also has never responded to private messages to even suggest someone logged in. **** I'd buy their account name from them if there was anyway I could contact them.

    The other has the "Unless you have a time machine." message and may be an old twitch…

  5. Creating a feature to enable or disable to create pin code (3/4/5 digit) before login for authorized web pc or app. By having this feature, the authorized twitch app or web can be entered after by a pin. User need to input code digit before able to see home twitch screen as usual.

  6. I've seen this requested feature a lot, option to add a display name? (just like with Twitter, there's a display name, and an @username)

    Good way to deal with username snipers, generic words & common names such as "Jake" or "Jacob" are already being used of course, but if someone named "Jacob" creates a username such as /Jacob_535455 then it just looks messy for a channel name, so yeah, a display name should be an option too (it's already on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, Reddit, Steam, you name it, so it'd be a good idea for here too)

    For LIVE…

  7. When activating my Twitch account on my Xbox One, I received a code to enter in at twitch.tv/activate that began with "***". Inappropriate combinations of letters should not be included in activation codes.

  8. Authenticate a PC across all of your platforms. Example: Twitch Web and Desktop App, Broadcasting software (StreamLabs OBS), etc.

    Right now, after re-installing my Windows, I had to request an SMS authentication code for Web, Twitch App Desktop and StreamLabs OBS. Since I had to reset my password (forgot it once again, since I am not allowed to have an Easy password) I have totally requested 3 sms messages. After which I get locked out and I couldn't get a code for the Desktop Twitch App for that period of time, on the same PC.

    Authenticating the PC uniquely, without…

  10. I would appreciate the option to see open sessions of my Twitch account and close them manually if they are no longer necessary or desired.

    This would be for security and peace of mind that no one else is purposing Twitch accounts without a user's permission and potentially causing issues in various chats.

    Thank you for your time and consideration.

  12. Please submit twitch.tv for HSTS preloading (https://hstspreload.org/?domain=twitch.tv). This will help force the users' browsers to connect to the website using only HTTPS, even if they have never visited the website before.

  13. Bakın. Her türlü ismi denedim. Rastgele tuşlara bastım. Ancak hala daha bana niye bu "Görünen adınızı değiştiremez ancak büyük harf kullanımını değiştirebilirsiniz."yazısı çıkıyor? İsmimi BosAdam355 yapmak istiyorum. Böyle bir kullanıcı yok ama kabul etmiyor. Harfleri bazen büyük bazen küçük yazdım olmuyor. Lütfen yardım edin.

  19. If the channel owner has passed away for any reason, their channel should be memorialized by their family member or a friend who knew them both online during their streams & offline as in IRL. I'm suggesting this because a fellow affiliate XavyCakes4u recently passed away from an unknown cause. I was unaware of it until partner KiitLock brought it up through Twitter.

  20. Guys please read all of this and vote if you want this to happen. Much Appreciated.

    There is a problem for years with any other TWITCH STREAMER especially who are AFFILIATES that they want a USERNAME of their choice but its been taken and used already by any other viewer who is not a streamer or anything. So, to solve this problem here is an idea and I know we all want this. So the idea is that when somebody SIGNUP on TWITCH they will get a RANDOM USERNAME including of random numbers and random alphabets generated by TWITCH. They…
