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 my current 2F Authentication already with Google Authentication, so as this isn't necessarily an essential facet to this system, it would be a nice addition to this system.

Yes.. This is ridiculous. I should not be forced to use SMS and/or have a separate app for one authentication.
your guide doesn't work with the current google authenticator app
I wrote a guide on how to get around this in the meantime: https://medium.com/@dubistkomisch/set-up-2fa-two-factor-authentication-for-twitch-with-google-authenticator-or-other-totp-client-f19af32df68a
Annnd a bump.
Now that 2FA is required to be able to cash any money out, it's REALLY time Twitch switched to the open standard and away from Authy which is stupidly proprietary. If you're going to force us to use 2fa, give us the choice in app we use, and give us the CHOICE as to whether we want to provide Authy with our personal information or not. Frankly, forcing people to provide personal information to a 3rd party is stupid security-wise. Using a plug-in is not security-wise. Upgrade to follow Amazon.
Desperate need for an open 2FA format. I have to have Authy ONLY for Twitch. Even Amazon uses an open format for Authentication, yet Twitch does not. Twitch is the only site I've ever encountered that has Authy specific 2FA.
need Google Auth
How has this not been added? It's been two years now
I also support this idea, as I see absolutely no reason to trust Authy.
please support standard OTP. Authy is really annoying.
It's been over two years guys.. what is more important than user security that has taken you two years to implement? This is the single biggest black mark for Twitch vs. YouTube. The competition solved this problem years ago. In fact, so did Amazon. What's taking Twitch so long to implement basic TOTP via QR authentication?
Kelly Clowers commented
Guys, why are you using some weird Authy-specific API? The mechanism to set up TOTP with a QR code is pretty well universal. You can use Authy, Google Authenticator, FreeOTP, LastPass and others. Just give us the dang QR code!
TOTP would be the way to go here. Limiting it to Authy is shortsighted at best. Open standard versus requiring a single closed app (or SMS, possibly being served through Authy anyway) is frustrating. I already have an auth app that works for everything EXCEPT Twitch.
Julius Häger commented
Holy, how anti consumer can you be? This makes the whole idea of 2FA and security just a joke. People should be able to trust whichever 2FA app they want, if we are forced to use a single (probably sponsored) 2FA app then the trust the user has for the app/company has no part in it totally nullifying the reason to even have 2FA.
Dan Fiscus commented
For the love of god just support ALL 2FA APPS it's not that hard to figure out that's what the community wants. Authy is absolute trash and I have to use two 2fa apps because I refuse to put any of my other 2FA codes on it
Please use barcodes and let us choose which 2FA client we want to use.

"One of the reasons why we went with Authy instead of Google Authenticator is because of the exact situation you described. Did you know Authy has a chrome plugin? With Authy, you can install it on any of your devices, including your computer with a Chrome browser."
I don't want a third party to have access to all of my 2 factor authentication details in an environment I have no control over. Having a chrome plugin makes it even worse. If someone has that installed, all it takes is getting into the computer. Password manager has the login to Twitch, the plugin provides the "secure" token. The whole point of 2FA is that you don't have everything in one place.
I use an app on my phone which backs it up in an encrypted way which I can check for security issues. I have full control over my data. The only way I can get a token is by using that app and entering a pin.
Please, please add this twitch. Authy is so, so bad.
Google Auth so I can have one app run ALL my auth please... I shouldn't have to do a one-to-one site to app secure environment.
