  2. 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…

  6. Well the idea is that the twitch drop works a little different than it's today, because it's so frustrating to see a friend that watches just 10 minutes of stream getting a item that you looked around 5 hours and open multiple streams to get the same item and it don't drop for you, I think the drop could at least consider the time that the person watch because like it works now and thatn situation happens is sorrowfull for some people

  7. The iOS app has this annoying habit of logging me out of the app seemingly at random, and with no input at all on any other device. This is very disruptive as I have 2FA set up on my account, and to log in I have to both provide my password and an auth code that may/may not be easy to get to depending on whether I have my auth code generator to hand.

    The iOS app never used to randomly log out, so the question is why is it doing it now. I'm aware of the "30 days" feature…

  8. Really nice not being able to use any of the passwords I've tried creating for this site. I followed the guidelines you presented, but each time it told me my password was too easy to guess and wouldn't let me use it. I could understand if it didn't land under the requirements such as minimum characters, at least 1 special, number, and uppercase character, but it met those. It's unclear if dictionary words are allowed because you say not to use them, but you offer LastPass or 1Password as examples. Those aren't accepted by the way.

  9. PLEASE add a feature where you can login to a different account with a click of a button. Every time I need to switch accounts to manage a bot account I need to log out, then log in to the bot account, scramble to look for the 2FA code, do whatever I had to do, then log out again, then do another 2FA. Please just let us click our Profile Picture, select "Switch Accounts" and sign in to a different account seamlessly.

  10. I am in agreement with people requesting a reduction on the time before you're able to change your username. Even if i have to wait 2 months before i can change it to something else, I've tested out my current username, as of posting this, and have discovered i hate it. If you could revert a user name change in the first 24 hours at least, even if i had to wait 2 months until i try again, it would solve a lot of people's problems with it. I also hate how there's no way of testing out a username…

  11. I tried to use a password that is autogenerated by my password manager. Obviously I won't put that here, but another one generated by it is: "speed applause deceiver endpoint cash freckles polygraph mothball unsaid raffle vacant unmoved".
    This is apparently "not secure" and "too easy to guess". Instead I had to make it: "speed applause deceiver endpoint cash freckles polygraph mothball unsaid raffle vacant unmoved1!"

    Its worth pointing out that adding a password requirement of any kind besides length and restricting obvious dictionary sequences is well known (even by the US government via its most recent NIST standards) to…

  12. My idea is for Twitch to respect the length of the suspension they impose on the user. I don't know if I'm the only one to experience this, but informing a user via email about a 24-hour account suspension and then keeping that account suspended for 72 hours is a frivolous treatment of users. Sending information via e-mail about the duration of the suspension and then not complying with it is lying to the creators/users. I recommend that Twitch should be able to deal with such a situation and introduce compensation for this kind of disinformation.

  13. When hovering over the follow button either on accident or on purpose, the text that pops up does not disappear when the mouse leaves. Sometimes all it takes is to mouse over it once again, sometimes 3,4 times.

  17. I feel like Twitch sends out emails with an excessive amount of HTML in them. HTML emails are fine, but let's all try to keep things to a sane level.
