  1. Please add support for using one or more hardware U2F tokens for 2FA, e.g. Yubikey, Solokeys, etc. devices. Please also add this as a stand-alone 2FA option that does not require a mobile phone or other authentication application if possible.

  2. Is there a plan for username names that are inactive? For example, I want to put a specific username, but it is already chosen and it seems that the person using the account is inactive. Will you have a system that after so long the name will be available and if chosen by someone else the inactive person has to enter another username when entering the account due to inactivity? It would be great

  3. 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. 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…

  11. I have wanted to change my twitch username multiple times, but I have decided against it because I do not want to have to go through the process of reintroducing myself to everyone that I have met previously in chats and talk them through me changing username. I am a moderator in multiple channels, and it would create a cluster if I completely changed my username. I think there should be an option when you change your username to TEMPORARILY put your old username in parenthesis next to your new username to avoid this issue. (An example of what I…

  12. When linking your twitch to your discord, it auto gives subs to subs that have linked their account, now what would be good is that if this also could happen with VIP's!

  13. Pretty much as described. I had someone enquire about this because they had one account with their current on stream name and while looking to find their rebranded name they registered it on a their stream testing account.

    Since both account are registered to the same email address it would be nice to "switch" the usernames when the rebrand goes live. As it stands now they are stuck waiting while the name goes back into the name pool and hoping the name is freed up for the "main" account.

    (and no one takes it during this time...)

    Rebranding can take…

  14. Hi guys!

    If you follow 50+ channels on twtich, it can be hard to keep track on who's streaming but you also don't wanna unfollow channels which you just watch every now and then. I suggest that there is an option where you can create custom folders that you can name however you want.

    i.e.: A Priority, B Priority, C Priority.
    or: League of Legends, Shooters, IRL, others

    Not sure if this is the right place for this idea but I hope i managed to make my point clear. I would love to hear your opinion on this!

    Cheers

  15. 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…

  16. I dont want to hear and see autoloading random top broadcasting from my region while I am opening the twich browser page and trying to log in into account. The content is often inappropriate, rude and obscene, especially in my IP region. Its absolutely unacceptable for my family, children and friends. I do not usually visit top channel with screaming rude persons playing video games.

  18. You don't really need complex passwords to follow someone. Seems like you should only require a more complex password if someone tries to buy subs or to stream.

  19. So, I've changed my display name to a localized name just for fun and wanted to change it back after a certain period. However, there's currently no way to tell how much days remaining you have before you can change back, just a "*You may only change your display name once every 60 days" warning when you try to change it back. What would be nice is to implement a visual cooldown, just to not try every single day.
