Knowing how to do this is important in the event you log into your Twitch account on a mobile device someone else has access to, and you don’t want to leave your Twitch account logged in where they can see your personal information, change your password, delete your videos, post videos and more.

Reasons You May Need to Log Out of the Twitch App on iPhone, iPad or Android
1. Privacy Concerns
Ensure your Twitch account stays private by logging out whenever you’re not using the app. This prevents others from accessing your account, chats, saved Twitch streams, and viewing history on a shared device. Take control of your privacy by logging out after each session.
2. Sharing Devices
Share your phone without the worry of someone accessing your Twitch account. Simply log out of the Twitch app before giving your phone to someone else. This guarantees that no one will be able to see your chats, subscriptions, or viewing history without your permission.
Is your Twitch app acting up? Try logging out and then logging back in. This simple step can often resolve a variety of issues, including freezing or crashing. Logging out and logging back in can give the app a fresh start and improve its performance.
4. Changing Twitch Accounts
Need to switch to a different Twitch account? Log out of the current account and log in with the new one. This seamless transition allows you to switch between multiple Twitch accounts with ease.
5. Security Reasons
Protect your Twitch account by logging out when your device is not in use. In case your device is lost or stolen, logging out ensures that no one will have access to your account. Stay secure and log out regularly.
