Linking MS account required on Mobile app
I put the mobile app on my phone and tablet only to discover the only way to log in is to use my Microsoft account. This isn't a requirement on the website just mobile, I really don't understand why that is. I was told this prevents trolls, but not really since it doesn't take long to create a whole new account.
I would prefer the option to link the accounts rather than being forced to do so, I have a separate username for my streaming stuff than I do for my non-streaming related stuff. My MS account is part of a family account that I use to play with my kids, I really don't like mixing all of that. Not to mention the MS interface for many things remains unappealing and clunky, a simple update to my info for my account and trying to make a purchase got me locked out of my account for purchases for a week when it was 'automatically' unlocked. Amazon doesn't force me to link my twitch accounts, I don't see why Mixer would make you.
I use 2fa wherever it's an option but being forced to merge all of my MS account stuff is not ok since that now includes my xbox, PC, email, etc. It's not quite the same as linking my Amazon account to twitch because Amazon is a site I shop at not my OS, my email provider, and so on.
I won't be using the mobile app until the option to login using my username and password is available.
