    Come on Twitch. Stop collecting unnecessary user data!

    Everyone before me who stated requiring SMS validation for setting up 2FA TOTP is horse dung is 110% right.

    Especially since you keep nagging users to secure their accounts, which I'm absolutely willing to do, you should make it as painless as possible. That means not bothering users for their private phone number. For my part you will not get it. TOTP, WebAuthn or nothing.

    It's unbelievable that a company as big as Twitch, right in the middle of big tech fails to understand basic privacy and security concerns of their users.

    I wholeheartedly agree. Using phone numbers for 2FA is so last century. With the arrival of SIM swapping attacks it can no longer be regarded as secure either.

    Twitch, it's time to level up and switch to TOTP for 2FA like anybody else serious about security and privacy does. I may finally get to enjoy some 'verified accounts only' channels.
