Typically, we seek multiple accounts on the same platform when we have multiple needs or requirements to meet. When we create multiple app accounts, the expected burden is also to create multiple email addresses to avoid the first-hand ’email ID already exists’ embarrassment.
On Twitch, you can not only create multiple accounts but also hold that many accounts with the same email ID or phone number as well! You can bid the pain of creating several email IDs goodbye because now you can have as many accounts as you like under the same verified credentials.
The ability to create multiple accounts with the same email ID/phone number is a Twitch feature. You need to first enable that feature to go ahead and link multiple Twitch accounts to the current email address or verified phone number.
Ensure you’ve verified your email ID to use this feature.
Enable Additional Account Creation on Twitch With a Verified Email Address
Launch Twitch on your computer and click the user profile button to the top right corner of the screen.
Select the ‘Settings’ option in the lower half of the drop-down menu.
On the ‘Settings’ screen, hit the ‘Security & Privacy’ tab.
As mentioned before, this feature requires a verified email ID. There would be no need to re-verify an email address with which you’ve logged into Twitch unless you’ve logged in with your phone number. Then, you’d need to add an email ID and further verify it with a verification code sent to the mentioned email address.
Now, click the toggle button next to ‘Enable additional account creation’ in the ‘Contact’ section. The toggle button must be filled and turn purple with a tick mark. This suggests the feature is enabled.
You can now create more accounts with the same verified email address with which you have logged into Twitch. You cannot enable this feature for a different email ID unless you’re logged into Twitch with that ID.
A verified email address is not the only way you can have multiple accounts on Twitch. You can also verify your phone number and add as many accounts as you want to that verified number! Here’s how.
Enable Additional Account Creation With a Verified Phone Number
To enable the additional account creation feature for your phone number, stay on the same ‘Security and Privacy’ screen of your Twitch settings. If you’re directly heading to these settings for the first time, follow the same procedure as discussed in the previous section (User Profile button > Settings > Security & Privacy).
To create multiple accounts and link them to your phone number, you must first verify your phone number.
Phone Number Verification
If you haven’t verified your phone number already, click the ‘Add a number’ button next to ‘Phone Number’ in the ‘Contact’ section.
Now, click the drop-down box next to ‘Phone number’ to choose your country code. Then, add your verifiable phone number in the text box next to it. Once done, hit the ‘Save’ button in purple.
You’ll receive a prompt to confirm your phone number and proceed to receive a verification code on it. If the number you’re seeing is correct, hit the ‘Confirm’ button. If not, click ‘Cancel’ and change your number in the same ‘Phone number’ field.
Enter the verification code sent on your phone number in the six boxes provided in the following dialog box. If you didn’t receive a code or can’t find it, click ‘Resend code’ to receive a new code. Once the code is entered Twitch automatically accepts the code. If that doesn’t happen, click the ‘Submit’ button to the bottom right corner of the box.
If the account is reusable — for multiple accounts, you will receive a ‘Phone Number updated successfully’ notification. And your phone number is successfully verified. You can now enable the feature to use and link multiple accounts to the verified phone number.
You cannot enable additional account creation with a phone number that does not allow reuse.
Enable Additional Account Creation
Now, all that’s left to have multiple accounts with your Twitch verified phone number is to enable the feature. Simply click the black and white toggle button next to ‘Enable additional account creation’ below ‘Phone Number’ in the ‘Contact’ section. The toggle ought to be filled, purple, and with a tick mark.
You can now have multiple twitch accounts and link them to the verified phone number.
