Security Breach Causes Twitch to Reset All Accounts

/ 5 years ago


Next time you log in to your Twitch account, don’t be surprised that all your info has been reset. In an official blog post from Twitch, they have suffered from a security breach, stating there “may have been unauthorized access to some Twitch user information” and thus Twitch has unauthorized all passwords and stream keys so that no further data is compromised. Not stopping there, they also unauthorized all linked YouTube and Twitter accounts. As is recommended any time any security breach happens, Twitch suggests that if any users used the same password for their account on any other sites, change them immediately to prevent any other personal information from being subject to similar breaches. With no official announcement of how bad the breach is, Twitch says they will “communicate directly with affected users” on any additional information necessary.
