Discord is one of the most popular gaming communication platforms today. Many pro gamers, streamers, and players around the world use it daily.
However, if you plan to use Discord while streaming, you must protect your personal details, as well as the server’s information.
Thankfully, Discord has implemented a feature called “Streamer Mode,” which provides you with precisely that kind of protection.
This short guide will help you set it up.
