Twitch has chosen Authy as its preferred 2FA service provider. This means that when you activate 2FA on your Twitch account, the authentication process is handled through Authy. Whether you choose the SMS or another authenticator app option, a Twitch token is automatically added to your Authy account. Importantly, this token should not be deleted.
Why You Shouldn't Delete Your Twitch Token in Authy
Deleting your Twitch token in Authy can have unintended consequences. Your 2FA link with Twitch will disappear, and you may find yourself locked out of your Twitch account. To avoid this, it's crucial to retain the token within Authy.
What to Do If You Prefer Another 2FA Method
If you would rather use a different authenticator token or the SMS option for 2FA, there's no need to delete the Twitch token. Authy allows you to hide the token while keeping it active for your Twitch account. This way, you can switch between authentication methods without compromising your account's security.
Deleting Authy Account or Token Doesn't Remove 2FA from Twitch
It's important to note that deleting your Authy account or removing the token from Authy will not remove 2FA from your Twitch account. If your goal is to disable 2FA on Twitch, you need to follow Disable or Remove Authy 2FA from Twitch.
