Enter your Twitch password. Enter your mobile phone number. Enter the verification code you received via text message/SMS or the Authy app if you’re already an Authy user. Dec 08, 2020 Twitch recently enabled 2FA for its platform. Most importantly, users can carry out from any authenticator of their choice. So, I will explain how to use Google Authenticator and LastPass authenticator to set up 2FA on Twitch. It’s quite easy actually. You will need to have the following things to use 2FA. I have listed them below. For a lot of gamers, Twitch is still the platform of choice when it comes to game streaming despite the proliferation of a lot of similar apps and services. One thing though that was lacking for.

  1. Open and unlock 1Password, select the Login item for the website, then click Edit.
  2. Click the item detail menu to the right of a new field and choose One-Time Password.
  3. Click to open the QR code scanner window.
  4. Drag the QR code from the website to the scanner window.

    If you can’t drag the QR code, most sites will give you a string of characters you can copy and paste instead.

  5. Click Save.
  1. Twitch is the world's leading video platform and community for gamers.
  2. In addition to giving you an easier way to login with 2FA, Authy offers the following competitive benefits: Multi-device support: you can use Twitch 2FA across many devices (including your desktop with a Chrome plugin). This not only means you can login securely from whatever device is most convenient at the time, but also if you lose a device.
  1. Open and unlock 1Password, select the Login item for the website, then tap Edit.
  2. Tap “Add new one-time password”.
  3. Tap to scan the QR code from another device.

    If you can’t scan the QR code, most sites will give you a string of characters you can copy and paste instead.

  4. Tap Done.

Tip

To automatically copy one-time passwords to the clipboard after filling a login, tap Settings > Password AutoFill and turn on Auto-Copy One-Time Passwords.

  1. Open and unlock 1Password, select the Login item for the website, then select Edit.
  2. Select to the right of the field (Shift + Enter) and choose One-Time Password.
  3. Click and choose “From my screen” to scan the QR code.

    If you can’t scan the QR code, make sure it’s visible when you minimize 1Password. Alternatively, most sites will give you a string of characters you can copy and paste instead.

  4. Select Save.

Today, my Twitch login process was one of the most ridiculous web interactions ever! As usual, Twitch sees every new browser session (cookies cleaned, no memory of the previous visited sites) as a “new device” and forces the user to provide a 6-digit code, to complement the user-password challenge. Unfortunately, those 6-digits came via email, and sloooowly, with a latency of minutes between the code request and the arrival of the corresponding email message. Maybe due to this latency, every time I entered the correct code, Twitch reacted as if I was writing the wrong number. Very frustrating.

At some stage, I finally succeeded and took the opportunity to change my Twitch security settings:

I decided to enable two-factor authentication (2FA), which means a second authentication challenge, after the user-password. First, I provided a phone-number, which indeed got associated with the account, but future logins will require not a SMS sent to the phone number, but a code generated by the “Authy” app, Twillio’s (twillio.com) equivalent to “Google Authenticator”.

When I first started using 2FA, SMS seemed the best option: I controlled the number, it required no extra app, so it was simpler, and that was – and is – something of great importance!
Unfortunately, as many are bound to find, sooner rather than later, SMS is now considerably insecure and more prone to failure than using time-sensitive security apps. The top reason SMS has failed me in the past, was phone-network operator restrictions, temporary phone-network traffic issues, and/or other reasons strictly under the phone-network operator control: there were situations when I needed a SMS in 30 seconds, and it would never arrive that promptly. That was the day when I quit SMS for app-based 2FA. The data comes from an operator agnostic network – the Internet.

Nowadays, SMS should be a second choice, relatively to Authy and equivalents, not only because of not depending on one specific phone-operator network, but also because the system is more vulnerable, with increasingly more documented SIM-card hijacking events.
