Twitch has the feature of detecting users who are suspected of violating the barriers

Twitch adds more and more features to protect streamers from harassment, hate attacks and other unpleasant situations. The operating system released a new tool last Tuesday (30) to detect suspicious users. This should prevent people who have been blocked by channel moderators from using another account to communicate live again.

In September of this year, Twitch implemented phone verification for chats with the aim of reducing hate attacks on the platform. With this feature, in order for streamers to send chat messages, people have to register and verify the cell phone in their account.

This verification tool simplifies the process of identifying and preventing toxic individuals, but is not sufficient to stop all types of attacks. Even after being punished, users can create another account and log back in live to continue the harassment.

User detection uses machine learning

With the new detection of suspicious users, Twitch began to use machine learning to detect potentially suspicious accounts that could avoid interruptions. The idea is to flag off the perpetrators before resuming illegal activities.

The system classifies users into two categories: potential or potential suspect. Suspicious users can join the chat, but only the channel owner and moderators know the messages. So, you can continue to control, constantly monitor the person or block him completely from the channel.

Users identified as potential suspects will normally be able to send messages in the chat, but the account will be flagged so that the streamer and moderators can closely monitor the user.

You can enable or disable for free both channel detection of suspicious users and phone verification for chats. There is no way yet to automatically block people, but these features will make the job easier.
