    Phone number verification is just a security breach waiting to happen. I have 2FA on my computer which feels much safer, but as soon as I test burner numbers I have the option to get the authentication token from SMS.

    Get your phone stolen and also your Twitch account in the process.

    And that's just pretending this is a "security" thing like the settings pretend to be and not another profiling layer to create a more complete data sheet on the user.

    I wouldn't even be that upset if they pushed creator sided phone verification for some privileges because I'm sure I'd still be able to interact *somewhere* but this is so silly right now.

    You can create a dozen of dummy accounts with temporary e-mails which makes my old, authenticated, 2FA enabled account feel less valuable than phishing bots.
