Banned viewers can no longer watch streamers on Twitch – but it’s easy to get around

Banned viewers can no longer watch streamers on Twitch – but it’s easy to get around
Twitch adds measure against banned viewers.

Twitch has started rolling out a new feature that lets streamers block viewers from watching them, but it’s not exactly foolproof.

In a recent tweet, Twitch has announced that streamers will now have the option to block banned viewers from watching their content live, a feature the community has been asking for for a long time.

Although it’s a sought-after feature for streamers, it doesn’t change a lot for the banned viewers.

With some very simple browser gymnastics, a banned viewer can still easily watch the stream, just not chat in it.

A banned viewer can simply pull up the livestream in incognito mode, or watch without being logged in.

Banned viewers are also only banned from watching live streams, which means they can still watch older recordings and clips from the channel they’re banished from.

This effectively means that the only thing banned viewers miss out on is chatting during livestreams.

Besides pointing out the incognito elephant in the room, streamers have been positive to the addition – calling it a step in the right direction.

Although the loopholes are glaringly obvious, forcing people to sign in to watch livestreams or old recordings could be the next step to properly block banned viewers.

For now though, at least they’ll lose their chatting privileges and hopefully reconsider their actions.

🛡️ Thanks to community feedback, we’ve started rolling out an option for streamers to prevent banned users from watching their livestreams. Streamers can turn on this feature in the Moderation settings section of their Creator Dashboard. — Twitch Support (@TwitchSupport) October 11, 2023
