How to protect my Twitch account from theft

Change your password, set up authentication and secure email

As you learned a few words ago to change your password on Twitch, the importance of this must be saved by protecting your account. Best of all, you create a unique and special password for your Twitch account, a strong but easy to remember password, which combines letters, numbers and characters. It should also be a reasonable length and you should try to change it from time to time in so much to prevent third party access to your account.



It is also vital to set up two-step authentication or 2FA, which further increases the security level of your Twitch account. The Twitch Help site provides more information on setting up two-factor authentication for your Twitch account.

Another crucial factor is change the password for your email pinned to your Twitch account and we recommend that you do not enter the same password from your email to your Twitch account. If so, it's even more important that you go ahead and change your email account to a secure password.

Delete payment methods, delete connections and verify your account email

In case you are already in a situation where you suspect that your account is at risk because you see purchases that you do not recognize, it is to delete any registered payment method. This will allow that while you take other steps on your own or with the help of the Twitch team, no unauthorized purchases will be made.


At some point, you may have allowed third-party applications to access your Twitch account. To delete this access, you must do so by deleting the connections in the Other connections section of the connection settings.


Finally, you can verify that the email pinned to your Twitch account remains the same as you entered. To do this, go to Security Settings on Twitch and check it. If it's not the same email, change quickly with an email you know.
