Unlike all the other platforms, a Twitch account cannot be deleted directly from the main account. To do so, you need a direct link for the deletion of a twitch account.

  • On the search engine, enter the URL https://www.twitch.tv/user/delete-account. The account deletion process will precede you with this link.
  • Optionally, you will be asked the reason for deleting the twitch account. However, it is entirely optional.
  • Click on the ‘delete account’ button.
  • You will be asked to enter your ID and password in the confirmation window. Do this and click on the verify window. 
  • After following the above processes, you will be redirected to your homepage. Refresh the page to confirm your account deletion.
  • Your account will be permanently deleted after following the above process.

How to Delete Your Twitch Account from Different Devices?

On every device, you need to enter the URL https://www.twitch.tv/user/delete-account. This link will redirect you to the deletion page, where you will be able to delete your twitch account.

How to Disable a Twitch Account?
