Twitch has announced that it’s launching support for any 2FA authentication apps. The streaming service even entices you with six exclusive emotes.

Twitch offers two-factor authentication (2FA) to protect your account from unauthorized logins. Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) means two different methods of verification will be required to log in to your Twitch account: your password and your mobile phone. If your password is compromised, your account will be inaccessible without the unique code sent to your phone.

As soon as you’ve got 2FA set up, you’ll find the six “exclusive emotes” visible in the tweet above in the Unlocked section of the chat. It’s great to see that Twitch is finally stepping up its security game — general 2FA support is much more convenient than Authy or SMS only.
