The ridiculous password requirements need to stop. I will never remember my 20+ character password.
Twitch requires the most insane password strength I've ever seen. I've had accounts with banks, insurers, court systems and other state/federal government websites, and yours is the only one I will never remember. You're a streaming site. It's not like you're handing out nukes.
Literally all I (and millions of others) want to do is watch streamers and comment occasionally. If the security is this high for streamers, who have jobs and contracts surrounding twitch, then fine. But I think you'd make a lot of people happy by making two separate account types, with different levels of security measures. One for users who will stream, and ones for viewers that will never stream. The latter will be thankful you've made the change, I'm nowhere near the first person to complain, and it's a very stupid reason to lose viewers/users/potential paying customers etc.
Yeah The password is way to much. If I could have my password be something I know and not just bs on a word doc I'd be happy.
Wouldn't hurt to put the complete complexity rules at https://help.twitch.tv/s/article/creating-a-strong-password?language=en_US
beyond length. Just let people decide on what security they feel is sufficient and move on. If it's 'weak', just make the user aware (disclaimer) and move on. If Twitch is responsible enough maintaining secrets, having a guessable password shouldn't matter much with MFA.
"That password is too easy to guess." By all means, proceed and let me know once you have it.
