This means that users need to change their passwords, and streamers will need new passwords AND stream keys.

Important Notice About Your Twitch Account

 

We are writing to let you know that there may have been unauthorized access to some Twitch user account information.

 

For your protection, we have expired passwords and stream keys and have disconnected accounts from Twitter and YouTube. 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. We will communicate directly with affected users with additional details.

 

Sincerely,
Twitch Staff

Someone may or may not have gotten the password to my old twitch account, because my saved password was not working. Had to reset to my email. 

Phew!

Yeah just got the request to change and you have to reset any stream keys too because they're invalid once you reset your password!

 

EDIT: CHATTY needs to be reauthorized as well!

Yeah, to me also. Looks like everyone is getting the prompting to change. A smart idea for Twitch to do.
