Prevent Unwanted Emails from Twitch

Twitch started as a website for watching videos of people talking about video games during game play and chatting, and it has grown to much more than that the last few years. You will get notifications when a player you follow goes online and other various emails you might consider spam.

One of the most common spam emails received by its users is the one telling you to “highlight your recent broadcast”. The complaints about that include people getting their Gmail inboxes loaded with anywhere from 10 to 80+ emails in short amounts of time. When something goes wrong at Twitch your Gmail ends up paying for it.

As always, you should first try to unsubscribe from these emails via your Twitch account, but if for any reason you can't access the account or are unable to unsubscribe, just follow these instructions to block their unwanted emails:

  • Install Block Sender for Gmail by clicking the “Install” button found in the upper right-hand corner of this site. The installation won’t take long. Open Gmail when it is done.
  • After signing up for a Block Sender account and linking your Gmail account to Block Sender, open the unwanted email from Twitch, and click the "Block" button on the messages toolbar.
  • Select the "Emails from this sender" option.
