Private viewer list + private usernames
Hello, thank you for implementing the recent phone verification feature. That has been really helpful, along with all the other safety features you have. I am a small streamer who is dealing with a harasser/doxxer who regularly makes new usernames and comes into my chat to drop my real name and address. The phone verification has prevented him from doing that in chat, but now he comes in and whispers my dox to everyone on my viewer list. The following would be very helpful in preventing him from doing this in the future without disrupting my growth as a streamer:
Create an option for streamers to make the "viewer list" private (or at least only visible to mods/streamer/ph# verified people.)
Make chatters usernames private to those who are not logged in and phone verified. (but keep the discussion open)
The person who is harassing me is very relentless. I don't engage with him at all but he still persists. I think these features would prevent him from doing any further damage on this platform. Thank you!

I had the same problem. I tried to keep banning and blocking new accounts whose usernames used my doxxed info (e.g. real name and workplace), but this doesn't end at all......
Right now, trolls often come into my chat and scroll through my viewers, and harass them. I think the only people who should be able to see the viewer-list is the streamer, and maybe the moderators. I think it leaves viewers vulnerable to just enjoying a stream. It’s essentially the same thing as if I was watching Netflix, some random person across the world could see that I was watching a certain show. Please remove viewer-list for everyone but the streamer!
