How to Delete Your Twitch Account


It’s simple to delete your Twitch account if you’re no longer interested in the service or if you’re simply attempting to prune accounts that you don’t use very often. However, you should be warned that cancelling your Twitch account will result in the permanent deletion of all of your content. Among the items in this category are any highlighted content (clips), saved videos (and settings), and any personally identifiable information (such as your user ID).

If this isn’t what you’re looking for, there is another option: you can deactivate your account. However, disabling your Twitch account effectively deactivates your account, but it does not remove any of your user information from the system. In addition, if you change your mind later, you may log back in and undo the changes you made. Whichever method you choose, here’s how to do the task using any internet browser on your Mac or PC.

Before Deleting or Disabling your Account

There are a few things that you should consider taking care of before you forward with cancelling or disabling your Twitch account. These are completely optional, so if you don’t think you’ll need them, feel free to leave them out.

First and foremost, notify your fans in advance that your Twitch account will be shut down and the reason for it. If it’s a temporary situation, inform them of your plans to return. Furthermore, if you’re switching to a different channel, you should let people know where they can find you next.

Second, because disabling your account implies that your information will still be accessible, you should remove anything sensitive that is associated with your account, such as your payment methods.
