  1. Could we please move away from the Authy only 2FA implementation currently used and provide standard TOTP and QR codes?

    This would work much better for people who already have a stack of 2FA accounts in other solutions, remove reliance on a single application, fix issues with support (eg. Windows Phone), remove the need for a phone number (important for younger users I'd imagine) and generally increase flexibility and usability of 2FA for everyone by not locking us into a proprietary implementation.

  2. It would be really nice to use a usb device for 2auth (something like the yubikeys).

  3. Also provide other options for 2FA apps not just Authy

  4. SMS as 2FA is well known to be the least secure of the methods available but still a better option than no 2FA at all, but I suggest an option to disable it as a fallback after having enabled Authy to lessen the security risks to the user account. You could learn from others mistakes such as Reddit's: https://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2018/08/password-breach-teaches-reddit-that-yes-phone-based-2fa-is-that-bad/

  5. the need to use other time based 2FA without the need of a SMS capable phone to use. Many sites now uses 2FA and a single platform to build it around doesn't make sense.

    please use a open system

  6. First of all, good job on implementing non-Authy, non-SMS 2FA!

    That being said, there's still a major hole in your 2FA implementation, and that's requiring a user to set up SMS authentication before they can set up other forms of 2FA. Unless I've missed something huge, whenever I try to set up 2FA on Twitch, I get directed to put in my phone number first. There's no prompt I can use to skip this step.

    This is completely counter to how a lot of other sites do 2FA, where SMS authentication is an option, not a requirement. You can completely…

  7. In https://help.twitch.tv/s/article/two-factor-authentication?language=en_US#Emotes?tt_content=two_factor_emote_rewards&tt_medium=notification_center it says that "When you set up Two-Factor Authentication on your account, an Authy account is automatically created for you even if you choose to actively use an alternative authentication app. This means you can fill out Authy’s Phone Change Form and recover access to your account." I don't need you creating an Authy account behind my back. You have to give us the option to undo this.

  8. Many streamers are currently being flooded by bots. There are no adequate filter mechanisms such as Captcha or other authentication methods that probe the creation of multiple fake accounts.

    Twitch should use a secure authentication method for account creation as soon as possible so that so-called bot accounts and fake accounts can no longer be created in the future.

    These bots make it unnecessarily difficult for honest streamers to apply for a partnership. In addition, it is almost impossible for streamers to prove that they have not bought or deliberately used any bots such as follower bots.

    Dear community, please…

  9. 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…

  11. 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?

  12. 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…

  13.    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

  14. Log IPs of all attempted logins to an account. This way we can report suspicious behavior to you and to authorities/banks when it occurs.

    Reason being, I have received multiple 2FA codes on my phone and have no way to report these unauthorized attempts to access my account. I have changed my PW and am still receiving these codes. I have ran two separate virus checkers and come back empty from both.

    Thank you.

  16. I'd like to see the 2nd login factor (via email, as i never activated 2FA) configurable somewhere.

    Background: the surveillance capitalists force me to surf in private windows only to keep my footprint low and that means, that no cookies are saved or even shared between browser tabs. Thus i need to enter a "security" code sent via postcard through the internet (that's exactly my humor...) WITH EVERY **** LOGIN!

    Sorry guys, that's not security, it's just to annoy users like me with no real benefit. I know how to use and keep a good password. So let me have…

  19. I recently got hacked and now my prime subscription is being used on someone that I have no knowledge of. Two factor authentication for subscriptions would be nice so that we would be able to know when a purchase of some sort happens.

  20. Maybe a personal opinion but having to search the country code manually by scrolling through the list box is not very intuitive. I would like to suggest have a list of countries followed by their dial code rather than the dial number(country code)

    Also the ability to search by text would probably help for lazy people like me
