When signing up for an account please be aware that you are agreeing to our Terms of Service, Privacy Policy in addition to being held to our Community Guidelines. Accounts found to be in violation of these are subject to penalty, including account suspension. Please take the time to read these documents carefully.

Creating an account on Twitch allows you to interact with broadcasters and the community via chat, follow your favorite broadcasters to receive alerts when they go live and, of course, broadcast to the Twitch community from your own channel.

To sign up for an account, go to and select the "Sign up" button on the top-right portion of the page.

This will open the Log In / Sign Up screen. To sign up for a new account on Twitch, fill out the “Sign Up” form. Choose a username, set your password, email and date of birth. Additionally, don’t forget to tell us that you are not a robot!

We have active measures to prevent and takedown accounts created for the purposes of abuse, including the use of hateful, abusive, or threatening terms in usernames. If a username is found to violate our Community Guidelines or the account found to have attempted to circumvent our abuse mitigation measures, Twitch will suspend the account or apply other appropriate penalties to protect our services and community.

Alternatively, you may also sign up for a Twitch account by using your Facebook account, achieved by selecting the "Connect with Facebook" button.

Creating Additional Twitch Accounts

Additional Twitch accounts can be created at any time granted you adhere to the Terms of Service and Community Guidelines.

When verifying the email address on your account, additional creation of accounts with that email address becomes disabled to prevent abusive behavior against you.

As a user with a verified email on your account, you'll need to enable a setting in your profile settings to create additional Twitch accounts; Turning this on will allow you to register a single additional account.

Please note: You'll need to re-enable this setting each time you wish to register an additional account, as the act of successfully registering a new account on your verified email address will disable additional creation again.
