Disable or Remove Authy 2FA from Twitch

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:
