During Mizkif’s live stream, where he watched the charity pay-per-view event Creator Clash, a viewer managed to steal Mizkif’s PPV ticket. And this was made possible due to Mizkif showing the PPV stream tab on his browser for a split second.
Streamers have to be very careful of what is visible to their live stream. They have to remember to hide sensitive and private information visible on their screens.
And streamers often do this by moving sensitive and private data to a second monitor that isn’t broadcasted to the public. Alternatively, they hide their screen with their camera or blank images while handling sensitive data.
Mizkif’s Creator Clash PPV Ticket Stolen
However, no matter how careful someone is, mistakes happen. Mizkif learned this the hard way. A viewer stole his ticket during his live stream where he was watching the charity pay-per-view event Creator Clash.
Mizkif had his camera over the Creator Clash stream to avoid copyright infringement. And he was reacting to the PPV event as it progressed.

When someone shared a funny meme about one of the event’s contestants, Mizkif made his screen visible to share the meme with his viewers. However, he accidentally showed the PPV event stream tab for a split second while bringing up his full-screen camera.
Mizkif didn’t expect one of his viewers to steal his PPV ticket due to his blunder. He was surprised when an error popped up on his screen, informing him that his ticket was compromised.
And even though it was just a split of a second, that was long enough for someone to pry sensitive data. The event stream URL contained authorization tokens, which led to Mizkif’s PPV ticket being stolen.
While the fault lies with the platform streaming the event, this incident serves as a reminder for every streamer to protect sensitive information carefully. Small mistakes can lead to unfortunate leaks and security breaches.
