According to reports from multiple sources, the popular video game streaming platform Twitch may be banning its users from chatting for using VPN services to watch streams.
Virtual Private Networks, or simply VPN, is generally used to protect user privacy online by changing the IP address while browsing.
Lately, many Twitch users have reported being banned from the platform for using VPN services and this has become a major concern for the community as users receive no warning.
Twitter user ‘notdan’ claims that most VPN providers are currently banned from Twitch chat.
“Oh joke, Twitch has banned almost ALL VPN providers from chat over Shadowban in the past week or two,” the tweet said. “That is unacceptable. You should at least tell people that their chats are not showing up.”
