How to Secure Your Stream Chat with Phone and Email Verification

Hi everyone, in this article we will show you how to secure your stream chat with phone and email verification. Hate and harassment of any kind is unacceptable and prohibited on Twitch, whether it’s an offensive message, malicious stalking, or the egregious “hate attacks” that have been directed at marginalized creators in recent months. Curbing this type of behavior is, and will continue to be, a top priority for us. So, without further delay, let’s get started.

It’s no secret that a lot of people aren’t happy with Twitch’s handling of online harassment of streamers and content creators. While online hate speech is nothing new, so-called hate raids have been on the rise where instead of someone’s usual audience, a streamer’s chat is flooded with all kinds of hate messages, usually from hundreds of bot accounts.

In response, Twitch has introduced new tools, including verified phone chat and expanded settings for email verification. These are intended to help creators better control their chat experience and improve security.

How to Secure Your Stream Chat with Phone and Email Verification

  • Go to Twitch and log into your account.
  • Click on your profile picture and select Creator Dashboard.
  • On the left of the screen, go to Settings > Moderation.
  • Scroll down until you get to Channel Privileges, where you can modify the Chat Verification settings.

Final Words

Considering the fact that many Twitch creators, especially those who are popular, get a lot of hate every time they stream, this was a necessary addition. By implementing the ability to limit your chat to verified accounts, you can further protect yourself from online harassment and hate. So, if you like our article, share it with others.
