    Relevant Update  ·  Twitch responded

    We’re happy to announce that we have released an additional update to address these concerns. Streamers can now prevent their banned users from watching their livestreams. You can find and turn on this feature in the Moderation settings section of the Creator Dashboard, through the “Stop banned users from viewing stream” toggle.

    Please note, this update 1). does not prevent users from watching livestreams from an incognito window or while logged out and 2). does not prevent users from viewing VODs, clips or highlights. We plan to explore extending the functionality of bans further, including but not limited to preventing VOD and clip playback.

    In addition, we’ve made an update so that users that are blocked will now automatically be blocked from watching a streamer’s livestreams.

    We will leave this thread open for your other points regarding preventing view of other content types and account creation.

    It was brought to my attention that banned users can still watch this streamers content without other restrictions besides not being able to chat/follow/sub/gift subs. This makes me feel unsafe with the ban structure on Twitch. If I wanted to just warn a viewer/have them not partake in my streams before banning- I would just time them out. On social media - when you ban someone they can't view your content for the safety of the content creators out there. This also doesn't protect the streamers that have 18+ topics/content when they are doing their best to prevent a younger audience from viewing their page. Being able to still view & listen in does not protect streamers from further harassment either.

    Please fix this Ban feature so that banned users from channels cannot view streamer's content at all!
    Help make us feel safer in the Twitch community.
