  2. Two-factor authentication: allow us to use Google Authenticator

    Google Authenticator is open-source and would allow us to easily set up two-factor authentication without a phone number.

  3. Google Authentication for 2 Factor Authentication

    I would love to be able to have the option for Google Authentication to be integrated into your current 2-Factor Authentication system. Hypothetically, if I were to misplace or brake my phone, it would take some time for me to be able get a new device in which time I would not be able to reenter my Twitch account. I mod for channels, work with creators and would feel awful if I was not able to continue supporting and working for them as I do.

    It was also just be an ease of access thing, where I have all of…

  4. The Username Recycling policy has to change.

    Yes, I'm aware: per the recycling policy on the website, "Once you have changed your name, the abandoned usernames will be held by Twitch for a minimum of 6 months"

    But they're clearly not being recycled. I've been waiting on an old name since the policy was announced, and it had already been changed for at least a year when it was. I had changed it as part of an effort to rebrand some aspects of creation, which has changed directions since then.

    Six months is absolutely a reasonable amount of time, but these names are clearly not being recycled.…

  5. Allow us to change our Channel Name!

    Make it a paid option so no trolls can mess around with the names and impersonate others easily. I'd be down to pay a $20 for a name change.

    This is a solid option and Twitch deserves it.

  6. Separate Username and Channel Name

    Since you are having difficulties for letting us change our username why don't separate the username and channel name? Or something like a broadcasting group sharing same Channel Name but with different Usernames. It will be relatively difficult to broadcast as a team and will be required to set up a new account using the group name. Why not just use current accounts join together to form a group with a group name, leader, co-leaders, broadcasters, admins, moderators, and automatic sync panels of the group creator. Twitch is meant to make people's life easier, isn't it.

  7. Allow the reversal/change of localized display names

    Since usernames can now be changed every two months, why not localized display names? Or at the very least allow them to be reset - since way too many people have made the mistake of switching to japanese or chinese characters (myself included) and are now permanently stuck with it. I won't go into how many problems it's caused me but wow does it suck. It would be great if this could be implemented.

  9. Bind account with mobile number to prevent people from creating multiple accounts

    Right now people can create several accounts with just a new e-mail address (or delete an old account and create a new one). People that are harassing streamers usually does this, and it's unacceptable.

    Twitch needs to do something about this, because it's gone too far. Bind accounts with a mobile number and let the owner change his/her name Once, because the name we chose 2 years ago might not be suitable today.

    When a user register a new account on Twitch, they need to verify their identity with their phone number (for example sending a code via SMS that…

  10. Too easy to register new accounts on here when a user gets blocked

    To easy to register fake emails on here and harass someone defiantly need to not make it easy to create multiple user accounts on here which ultimately will lead to malicious activities.

  12. Login Verification

    Remove the reCAPTCHA. I have to click out of logging into my profile multiple times before I can see the verification button on the reCAPTCHA so I can finally enter into my profile.

  14. Why can't we take old, inactive accounts usernames?

    Twitch's "recycle" policy is misleading and they're not true to their words.

    I've been waiting 6 years to claim my old account's usenrame. According to the recycle policy, it says it'll take 6 months to 1 year before inactive usernames can be reclaimed by somebody else.

    I can't be the only one who's been waiting to reclaiming usernames??????????

  18. Non-Reachable Emails

    Allot of different websites offer this feature, but, how about making it so that if you somehow in someway can't login to your account after reporting missing credentials, it will offer you the chance to send the email about (e.g resetting your password) to an email that you can access.

  19. I've been experiencing a bug for a few weeks now.

    First noticed that live video was not loading, so I logged out.
    Main page of Twitch still didn't have live video, AND the log in button displayed a blank page. Channels at the bottom were displayed, but not clickable.

    I went to Twitter to submit console error text, but still having the same issue. I thought I might be banned, so I came back to email through twitch.tv, when I noticed a different login button next to the required username box. I successfully logged in.

    The new main page loaded, but live video is still dead.
    Going to some channels,…
