Twitch also serves different canary builds (previews of potential future versions) to selected/random users for up to 4 weeks, which most likely break parts of the extension. If you notice pages no longer working properly, disable the extension, report the issue¹ (you can also send me an e-mail or DM me on Twitter) and wait for an update. Note that updates may take a few days to be approved on the corresponding browser stores. Keep an eye on the GitHub commits² or follow me on Twitter³ to receive news regarding new versions. Please avoid leaving a 1-star review as this will neither help the case nor increase my mood.

  • (2022-05-15) Neya: Doesn't do anything, or work at all at the moment unfortunately. !!Edit: If you use edge, install the edge version. Usually chrome extensions work for edge but this one doesn't. So, edge version works perfectly. Thank you for making this
  • (2022-05-02) Anonymous: Great utility for filtering out people, tags, and games that are so obnoxious you don't even want to see them or know they exist. Especially useful with Twitch's new tag-for-every-aspect-of-your-personality system. However, recently I've found that manually entering things to exclude in the menu lists doesn't work as they don't save.
  • (2022-04-23) Joel O: Twitch gave the greenlight for streamers to misuse tags so now this extension is essential. Their response to streamers misusing the VTuber tag: We also do not feel Twitch should be the judge of Creators’ personal or creative identity, so we typically only enforce against the misuse of tags when it is associated with other behavior that violates our Community Guidelines such as hateful conduct or harassment.
  • (2022-04-23) 赤銅の篝火.: ×印が出ていない
  • (2022-04-21) Michal Vurm: This is a must for people who often visit Twitch and don't want to see some faces while browsing.
  • (2022-04-17) 구불: 여지껏 잘되다가 갑자기 요몇일부터 광고차단안됨 다른거 찾아봐야될듯
  • (2022-03-08) Firstname Lastname: Very useful for blocking certain games, tags, or streamers. I block anyone reading and obeying annoying backseaters while they have the no backseating tag on. Now I actually get to enjoy seeing the streamers playing the games, instead of twitch chat playing the games for them.
  • (2022-02-25) Me H: Doesn't block you from being raided into any of the channels you blacklist, prevent being raided into categories you blacklist, or block from being raided into anything you blacklist... making it rather pointless
  • (2022-02-15) Sarvex: this is way too helpful , thanks for this amazing extension , no more asmr
  • (2022-02-02) Wintermourn: doesn't work
  • (2022-02-02) Anri: it just doesn't add what i want to the blacklist
  • (2022-01-19) lIllIlllI: Thanks! Blocked everything on twitch except forsen
  • (2022-01-13) Duxast 33: Расширение очишуенное . Импорт и экспорт хорошо , а можно профили расширении ?
  • (2021-12-15) 米山: 「ゲームの配信動画が見たい」と思ってtwichにアクセスしたのに 画面の四分の一程を配信者のお部屋が映った小窓が占拠していたり 視聴者のコメントが字幕となって行き交い、フォロワーが増える度に大業なエフェクトが流れ よくよく見ていれば配信者自身が口汚かったり煽りプレイヤーだったり… 「もう見たくは無い、自分には合わないけど毎回検索画面で見かけるな…」 と言ったチャンネル達と軒並み縁を切れます、起動してパパッと×ボタン押せば終わり!サヨナラ! 探せば類似のアドオンが有るかもしれませんがこのまま使わせていただきます 日本語訳されてませんが操作は大体分かると思います
  • (2021-11-05) John Smith: doesn't do anything edit: was fixed and now does do something.
  • (2021-11-04) Alistair Watts: I don't think it work on all so i think it don't work if it have a two _ _ like this name_name_name
  • (2021-10-31) Chris Dementia: Seems to have quit working. Update: Working now!
  • (2021-10-31) cdawg145236 S: Seems to not filter out games on the directory, hell you cant even filter games anymore because clicking the extension button doesn't pop up the button in the corner anymore, it does block followed channels streaming filtered games and filtering streamers still seems works. Wish it would subtract the number of viewers from a game if you have streamer filtered, leads to opening a lot of empty games when a big streamer you filtered plays smaller games. Edit: working as intended once again. Would recommend to anyone, almost essential to my twitch experience (shocked but not shocked twitch doesnt have a feature like this).
  • (2021-10-27) Oh Really: На 27.10 не работает: категории не блокируются. Отключение синхронизации с облаком не помогает. Пожалуйста, почините T_T
  • (2021-10-14) Justin Leon: Tag filtering doesn't work. Adding the tag and saving does nothing.
  • (2021-10-06) Nikos Kitsikidis: Works as described, can filter tags, categories or games, even languages. Adds much needed functionality to twitch.
  • (2021-09-07) Azir069: thank God for this App!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! im suck off some streamers and they pop up every time. thats help a lot thank you very much REALY. in german wie say KUSS KUSS GEHT RAUS!
  • (2021-08-31) Get To The Point Already: Good app that turned into pure garbage due to developer neglect. Don't install this until the creator gets their act together and actually fixes this.
  • (2021-08-27) lion Heart: use to work good now doesnt hide channels on side bar they always come back. ffront page blacklisting broke too. cool idea that seems to be abandoned. please someone make something like this to clean up all the junk i dont want to see on my interface.
  • (2021-08-12) Lone Wolf: It doesn't work at all here ! I tried EVERYTHING with it to hide a particular channel from the carousel, and it never worked. Never.
  • (2021-08-05) Minh Hoàng Nguyễn: It works for a while after the lastest update but now it does not work again.
  • (2021-07-28) Алекс Сусликов: Not working 27.07.21 :( Edit: , working great, thanks
  • (2021-07-28) Bart Jansen: It works again, now.
  • (2021-07-28) XII: nice, lets me hide all those annoying attention seeking new tags that twitch likes to throw at everyone.
  • (2021-07-27) Oscar Triangle: Great extension, actively maintained to work after twitch updates. Hid away tags like lgbt and she/her, dont have to look at cringe while searching by game anymore
  • (2021-07-27) James Jackson: Just doesn't work. Blacklist doesn't save at all and just clears immediately.
  • (2021-07-27) Bart Jansen: It's broken, again.
  • (2021-07-25) Eric Berry: doesn't seem to work in 2021
  • (2021-07-18) Pál Tóth: The idea is great, but currently it seems bugged. I got 541 games blacklisted yesterday, and today it's down to 529 with no explonation. This happens almost every day, sometimes with dozens of games disappearing from the list overnight. Edit: following the advice below solved the issue. I'm pretty sure the extension saves me 30+ minutes every week, and it helped me find a bunch of cool content creators I would've never found otherwise.
  • (2021-07-17) Valdenio Marinho: The BEST extension for Twitch 2020 and beyond! <3
  • (2021-06-30) Brooksy: Ability to block channels hasn't been working for a while. Can only block categories.
  • (2021-06-09) Strange Love: Very helpful extension! Thank you!
  • (2021-05-29) Michael Gossweiler: Edit: Works again. Thanks for the Fix. Very nice Filter Addon for unwanted Channels / Games / Language (bye RU *hihi*). Filter Settings can be manually added (like "ASMR" or "IRL" or "whatever") or just klick [x] to add a Filter to the List. Awesome Job. Like it.
  • (2021-05-26) スーパー競馬: The channel is not hidden from following page.
  • (2021-05-25) Onii-chan's Neko: I've used this extension a long time, and it worked wonderfully for a long time, i recently did post a negative review as it didn't work for blockin the tags feature, however almost overnight the plugin was updated and working perfectly again; Amazing App and amazing creator. This is gonna come in crazy helpful now that twitch just added 350 new tags for "gender, race, nationality, sexual orientation, ability, and mental health" (If it doesn't work for you, "disable the extension, report the issue and wait for an update.")
  • (2021-05-22) Bart Jansen: Appears to no longer be bugged, on my end, at least, not seeing the blocked tags anymore despite them trending on a category I'm browsing.
  • (2021-05-22) brad moore: Seems broken as of this morning, categories that are in my blacklist are showing up, and no 'x' to hide them again.
  • (2021-05-21) Robin Shirky: You might have a lot of new users with this new twitch category "Pools, Hot Tubs, and Beaches"
  • (2021-05-19) Philipp Glass: great addon, but it looks like its not working anymore? i try to block german/deutsch streams and they are still showing up. thanks for your addon.
  • (2021-05-18) Bart Jansen: Note that the categories and tags you block disappear from your view everywhere, including followed channels, if a followed channel is streaming something you blocked, they will not appear in your "followed channels" list at all. Additionally, today I came across several twitch streams that had a tag I blocked, but still appeared in the stream list.
  • (2021-05-18) Нескажу Нескажухин: Not Working 18/05/2021 :(
  • (2021-05-05) MrGhostMark: It works. There is an "X" in a corner of the thumbnails to block channels. There is an "X" at the end of tags to block them. Thank you, you are doing god's work.
  • (2021-05-01) Marita Sørlie: - The 'X' button permanently disappeared 1-2 weeks ago, so it's no longer possible to hide games, tags and channels. Refreshing the browser no longer works to fix it. - Most of my followed channels disappear when they're live/streaming. I have to disable the extension when I want to watch streams from already followed channels, and enable it when I want to look for new streams/channels. - The whole blacklist will delete itself after some months. The reason this extension is getting a 2-star instead of a 1-star is because content I've already hid is still hidden.
  • (2021-04-24) PolandSpaceProgram: yay I can finally block those disgusting LGBeeTQIA+

  • (2022-04-10, v:21.10.30) Nathan Bishop: Blacklisted Titles not saving
    Blacklisted Titles not saving, you add keywords, then save, it warns you about needing to reloading the twitch tab, you click okay, it closes the manager tab, you go back in and there's nothing saved to the blacklisted titles. Blacklisted Channels is working though
  • (2022-01-16, v:21.10.30) Octo Aori: This has basically ceased working in any fashion.
    The little "X" doesn't even show up to give me the option to block stuff anymore. What the heck-
  • (2021-10-26, v:21.7.27) Slice of Life: Stopped working.
    Can't confirm at the moment if it's just blocked games, but they're showing up on my "Browse" tab. I don't block any tags or titles, and I haven't noticed any channels that I block being unblocked. But like I said, can't really confirm anything besides games/categories.
  • (2021-08-02, v:21.7.27) Aglaia van der Kroon: Multiple catagory streams
    Hi, I watch a lot of vods because I follow a bunch of streamers on the other side of the planet, sadly I've noticed that in my latest video list when a streamer had played multiple games during their stream, the filters won't work unless the first game they played is one on my block list. Most of the time it's the 'Just chatting' category and then a different one after. As an example: I've blocked the game 'Dead by Daylight' but it still shows up in my latest videos because the streamer started his stream with 'Just chatting'. When I also block 'just chatting' that vod disappears, but vods that I DO want to watch also disappear. I don't know much about programming but is it possible to make your script read more than just the first category of a vod? I understand it must be hard to implement because there are also streamers who do marathons of several different games and have vods with 10 categories and you don't want to hide the video if you can just skip over one part of the vod. A suggestion (if it's not impossible to code) maybe if a vod has multiple categories you make your script calculate how many percent of the video is a category you have on your block list and if it exceeds like 70% maybe the vod gets hidden? Anyways, regardless if you can program this or not, your add-on is amazing ;)
  • (2021-07-27, v:21.6.6) Dustin Baker: Blacklisted language tags?
    I tried using the blacklisting tag option so I could blacklist languages I don't speak because I'm tired of seeing Portuguese/German/etc. streams fill up categories when I watch streams early in the morning. Every other blacklist option works, but for some reason tags doesn't?
  • (2021-07-27, v:21.6.6) Darrin Funk: Stopped working
    Still shows the stream in my blacklist. I tried saving the blacklist and reloading but the unwanted streams are still there.

    Hello, possible to support opera bowser please? actually it doesn't support him...
  • (2021-06-14, v:21.6.6) Onii-chan's Neko: Suggestion
    Hi :) I've been a long time user of your chrome extension (i love it by the way). I did have one thought/suggestion that you could take or throw away, etc It would be super cool if the chrome extension could hide streams/etc from streamers with under X followers. (A lot of the time, in my opinion at least, streams with under 50-100 followers are pretty bad/bland or the streamer isn't even in the chat, it would be cool if we could hide all streams with under (or over?) X followers?
  • (2021-06-07, v:21.5.22) Snowcone Guy: Doesn't work anymore
    I have some of the most disgusting tags blacklisted with this extension, but streams labeled with those tags still show up in my search results. The only change is that in the search results (where the overview of the streams are shown) those labels are no longer displayed under the preview image. But then when I open those streams, I can see that they are labeled with the tags that I have blacklisted. So the main function of filtering out trash doesn't work anymore.
  • (2021-05-22, v:21.5.21) Christos B: Functionality
    It's broken for me right now (it broke yesterday).I have the latest version 21.5.21
  • (2021-05-19, v:21.3.21) MrGhostMark: Not Hiding
    Oh no, it broke recently. At least when viewing the videos tab on a game's page. It still works fine for the live channels.
  • (2021-05-18, v:21.3.21) Brendon Taylor: Blacklisted game still shows on "Following" page
    "Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege" is on my blacklist and doesn't show any of my followed streamers playing it when looking at the FOLLOWED CHANNELS bar on the left, but when I go to twitch.tv/directory/following/live I can see at least one streamer playing it. I've deleted/re-added it to my blacklist, tried adding it manually, refreshed multiple times, and ensured "Also filter on the "Following" page" is checked, but this might be a bug because the ONLY place I can see this game is on the "Following" page.
  • (2021-02-03, v:20.11.2) M B: Channel names
    Thanks for an amazing extension! Would it be possible to add a blacklist category that lets you blacklist channel user names? Just like the blacklisted titles category but with names instead? The reason is when I scroll through the music category looking for artists and bands there are hundreds of DJ's which I'm not interested in. If I could blacklist the letters "DJ" in a channel user name it would save me a lot of time. Now I have to blacklist them separately using the X. Thanks!
  • (2021-01-12, v:20.11.2) Luiz Fernando Mendonca: Error
    It started to behaving wrong today. On the main page works fine, but when you open a channel/game to choose a streamer, you cant click on it, it still has the small "X" on the corner, but it also got a big round overlay that goes purple when you mouse over. Clicking anywhere on the circle (that covers 95% of the square) does the "X" function. So to open a channel, i have to click on the corners, avoiding the circle.
  • (2020-10-02, v:20.6.19) René Jiménez: Suddenly stopped working
    all the Categories, channels, tags and titles on my blacklist are once again appearing. The "x" marker has also disappeared
  • (2020-07-19, v:20.6.19) You Tube: Block streamer addons?
    Could you make this also block addons like "Charmin" and Twitch Drop and on-screen "promotion" popups?
  • (2020-06-20, v:20.3.11) Connor Tilley: Blacklist reverts to no entries.
    I click on the manage blacklist button, add categories, hit save. It gives me the prompt to reload, I reload - nothing is blocked. If I click manage blacklist again, there are no entries.
  • (2020-06-09, v:20.3.11) Gareth Hubball: Doesn't block the correct channels
    I'm on twitch.tv/directory/following and a channel that's on my blocklist appears in the recommended channels.
  • (2020-05-19, v:20.3.11) Sefa Çiçek: Offline support
    The extension does not work when we do not enter the Twitch site. Let's start working when logging into the site.
  • (2020-05-18, v:20.3.11) Dennis Zellner: Blocked channels reappeared. I think Twitch might have changed something.
  • (2020-05-02, v:20.3.11) Jim Jones: Great extension. One suggestion.
    A feature to hide streams by viewer count. Some of the best hidden content on twitch has less than 50 viewers and that's hard to find in big categories.
  • (2020-04-06, v:20.3.11) About Blank: A Good Extension Feature
    Hi, I just wanted to suggest to add a simple button, like "Undo last removed channel". So, with this button I will be able to revert removing the last channel that I accidentally deleted. Thank you!
  • (2020-03-10, v:20.2.5) 지나가던리어카박씨: infinite refresh korean channels
    used x button on thumbnail > infinite refresh so i've tried to manually type channel name by KR and EN both at manage page but it isn't working too. when used x button, blacklisted channel name does not display at manage page. i can see just blank line
  • (2020-03-10, v:20.2.5) matt: still work?
    When I am clicking on the X button on a single stream it is added a 'blank' name on the blacklist when is then hiding every stream. If I copy paste the stream name on to the black list, save then refresh the Twitch page, it does not hide it.
  • (2020-02-14, v:20.2.5) Galen Marek: Any Chat Functions?
    Hi, I've been looking for a client-side extension that would allow me to hide/block users whose message will be filtered out based on a set criteria. (Ex. Hiding messages that contain specific terms or emotes.) It seems like this extension focuses more on managing the channels you see, but is this a potential feature you'd consider? Cheers mate.
  • (2020-01-25, v:20.1.20) Miya Zaki: Does it work while in-stream window?
    This extension is great as it finally allows me to hide live channels that I followed but currently don't watch without unfollowing them. However the problem I have is that that extension works on something like the home page/following page but if I open a stream in that window of the stream it shows the blocked channels again. So I am wondering is this fixable on my end? Is it a bug? Or even intended like this? I am using Chrome.
  • (2020-01-20, v:19.10.14) Steffen Brumm: in addition to my last comment
    filtering of 'recommended Channels' works on the mainpage (so: www.twitch.tv) but NOT on (www.twitch.tv/<channelname>') with activated setting "Also filter Followed Channels". (hope that helps a bit) ;)
  • (2020-01-14, v:19.10.14) M B: Tags
    Thank you so much for this great extension! Saves me a lot of time. I've been using it for a long time but the list of blocked tags has stopped working. It doesn't help adding them manually to the list and since Twitch's update there is no longer an X to click on to block tags. Is there a way to fix this?
  • (2020-01-13, v:19.10.14) Steffen Brumm: Plugin doesnt work wih 'Recommended Channels'
    Hi, Is it possible to remove channels from 'Recommended channels'? The plugin seems not to work there. Maybe it is because the channel uses upper and lower case letters. I use the latest released Chromeversion.

    If I turn the "Also filter Followed Channels" option on, the page removes the channels from the view, but the space for them is still there. Big blocks in between the channels that have games that I have not blocked.
  • (2019-03-18, v:19.2.23) Rondorix: Game/Category Not Properly Filtered
    Late as this is, apologies on that.. Also, wasn't sure how to reply to the reply I got, so just did this, instead. Not sure how to add something to the blacklist "via button", unless you mean the "Manage Blacklist" button on the category page, which only just opens the blacklist for me, and doesn't actually add the game in. So, yeah I have to do it manually. Not sure what URL you're asking for though.Guessing you mean the URL of the game category itself, or? Either way, what ends up in the blacklist is, copypasted directly from it, "pokemon: let's go, pikachu!/eevee!". And the category URL is.. https://www.twitch.tv/directory/game/Pokemon%3A%20Let's%20Go%2C%20Pikachu!%2FEevee!?tl=1 Incase that's what you need.
  • (2019-03-05, v:19.2.23) Rondorix: Game/Category Not Properly Filtered
    I've noticed that trying to filter "Pokemon: Let's Go, Pikachu!/Eevee!" with the extension doesn't seem to work, as despite that being the actual category name streams of that game/category aren't hidden/removed from view.
  • (2019-02-22, v:19.2.13) Deep Dish Pepperoni Pizza: Filter by gender / view count
    I want to only see women with only 50 viewers or below, because when there are few hundered viewers I can't feel close connection with a streamer.
  • (2019-02-18, v:19.2.13) Limit Exceeded. List reset. How to get the list back? Increase limit?
    So, reached some 8k banned channels and received a message (header pop up type) saying the limit was exceeded. When I clicked the extension to check, it showed the empty list with 0. This is a problem in the design.
  • (2019-02-17, v:19.2.13) Кирилл Дегтяренко: Стерлись все данные.
    После тщательного отбора стримеров для просмотра накопилось уже 8000 в черном списке. После того, как начал отбирать игры вылезло какое-то сообщение о том, что список переполнен и весь черный список был очищен.
  • (2019-02-11, v:19.2.8) Filter games being played by streamers on your following list.
    Ideally i'd like to be able to not see streamers i'm following, who are playing X game, but when they aren't playing X game i'd like to see them again. Think this is possible?
  • (2019-02-11, v:19.2.8) Drew Kollasch: fantastic!
    Was looking for just the thing this does, thank you!! However, after blocking a specific category (specifically apex legends), those streaming the game no longer show up in the main page, but still show up in the small 'followed channels' list on the left side. Is removing them from this list something this extension could do as well?
  • (2018-09-29, v:18.9.14) Block "No Game Selected"?
    Is there a way for this extension to block streams that do not select any game? For example, lately there are numerous streamers that are broadcasting soccer games (illegaly at that) with bot made accounts (random names and new accounts daily). They never choose a game so the game cannot be blocked and they tend to have new random accounts daily so blocking via name is likewise useless. Thanks
