Ever since the introduction of Founders Badges on Twitch, streamers have requested the ability to remove or reassign Founders Badges from certain users in their community.
Twitch is now finally granting the highly requested feature to let streamers reassign or remove Founders Badges from inactive or banned users on their channel.
Reassign Or Remove Founders Badges On Twitch
The Founders Badges are automatically assigned to the first 10 subscribers (for Affiliates) and the first 25 subscribers (for Partners). The feature makes recognizing long-time viewers and supporters easier and helps them stand out within the community.

However, unlike other roles a streamer could assign and manage within their communities, they had no control over the Founders Badges. Inactive and banned users took up prized spots from the more deserving members.
Streamers have for a long time requested Twitch to allow them to manage and reassign Founders Badges within their communities. Finally, Twitch has heard the community and will deliver on the highly requested feature.
While this change doesn’t give complete control over Founders Badges to streamers, it does solve the problem that most creators have had to deal with until now. Inactive or banned users from the community will not be eligible to receive the Founders Badges.

And this change will pass on the Founders Badges to the next eligible member of the community, giving them the recognition they deserve.
How To Change Or Remove Founders Badge On Twitch
Streamers can remove Founders Badge from viewers who are no longer active in their channel or those they have banned since their initial subscription.
You can access this option by navigating to the Creator Dashboard > Insights > Channel Analytics > Click “View Details” on the Subscriptions Panel > Click “Manage Founders” above the Channel Founders list.
Alternatively, you can click this link and be taken directly to the Manage Founders section on your Creator Dashboard.
Removing Founders Badges from viewers is irreversible, and it prevents the user who lost their Founders Badge from earning future Founders Badges. Only remove Founders Badges from viewers if you absolutely must.
