Twitch mandates streamers to configure Authy 2FA before they can begin broadcasting. However, non-streaming Twitch viewers don't have this requirement, and are allowed to turn 2FA off. This guide is intended to help Twitch users disable Authy 2FA from their accounts.
Warning: We recommend temporarily disabling 2FA only long enough to accomplish the task at hand, and then re-enabling 2FA with Twitch as soon as possible. Stollen, reused, or weak passwords continue to be a leading cause of security breaches, so taking additional steps to secure your online accounts is a necessity. Authy suggests users implement 2FA security on all supported accounts.
Prerequisite: Login to Twitch
Disabling Authy 2FA from your Twitch account requires you to be logged in. If you are unable to login, please see the following resources:
- Twitch Account Recovery site for username recovery and password resets
- Twitch Login Issues for problems with Authy 2FA
- From twitch.tv, or the Twitch desktop app, click on your profile picture.
- Click Settings from the drop-down menu.
- Click Security and Privacy.
- Scroll to the "Security" section, and then click Disable two-factor authentication.
- A confirmation request will be displayed. Click Confirm to continue.
- The page will update once more when the request is completed. Click Done to continue.
- Once 2FA is disabled from your Twitch account, the Twitch 2FA token will be automatically removed from Authy.
Note: If your Twitch 2FA token remains after disabling 2FA, please contact Twitch Support.
