Requirements For Twitch Verification
As the old saying goes, “If it were easy, everyone would do it.”
Becoming Twitch verified takes more than just confirming your e-mail address, phone number, or identity. In fact, it takes a lot more.
To get verified on Twitch, you first need to become a Partner.
Before submitting your application to be accepted as a Partner, Twitch recommends achieving the following stats on your account:
- At least 25 hours of active stream time within the last month.
- Stream on at least 12 different days within the last month.
- Have a minimum of 75 concurrent viewers watching your broadcasts.
If this sounds unclear at first, or you fear it will be difficult to achieve without some guidance, we have written a guide with everything you need to know about becoming a Twitch Partner, which should help you on your journey.
Note: When you become a Twitch Partner, you are automatically awarded the verified badge, which effectively makes the requirements the same for the two. It’s also worth noting that you must reach Affiliate status before you can become a Partner.
We have also provided a guide on how to become a Twitch Affiliate, so take a look at it if you are unfamiliar with the concept.
With that said, you now know which aspects to work on if you want to move closer to becoming verified on Twitch.
Let’s take a look at some of the benefits streamers are able to enjoy by having the verified badge on their channel.
Benefits Of Being Verified On Twitch
The Twitch verified badge was introduced to the platform back in 2017, at the same time that the Affiliate program was implemented.
It requires consistent effort to become verified, but it’s well worth it as your channel will benefit greatly. If you are serious about making Twitch streaming a potential future career, the advantages of being verified are something you should be excited about.
Broadcasters with the verified badge next to their names will attract more viewers, as users will be confident that they won’t witness anything that violates Twitch’s policy.
Overall, users feel safer tuning into streams on verified channels.
From the technical, streamer perspective, there are other major benefits. These include priority access to support teams, the opportunity to collaborate with online teams, monetizing opportunities, and much more.
You now know how to earn a Twitch verification. Although this is something that requires quite a bit of effort and dedication, we encourage you to pursue it. It is one of the most important milestones on the platform if you’re serious about streaming.
It’s important to take small steps, so your first focus should be on becoming an Affiliate before moving on to the next big thing.
