A worrying message appeared on TwitchTV’s official blog on Monday, saying “there may have been unauthorized access to some Twitch user account information.” Despite their downplay of the message with the misleading title: “Important Notice About Your Twitch Account,” people are still very much worried about who has their private information.
“For your protection, we have expired passwords and stream keys and have disconnected accounts from Twitter and YouTube,” reads the statement. “As a result, you will be prompted to create a new password the next time you attempt to log into your Twitch account. We also recommend that you change your password at any website where you use the same or a similar password.”
The exact nature of the breach isn’t known, but Twitch said it would contact affected users directly with additional details. We’ve reached out for more information.
