Discord is one of the more popular gaming communication platforms today. Many pro players, streamers, and people around the world use it.
However, if you plan on using this program while streaming, you must protect your personal information and the server’s information too.
Thankfully, Discord has implemented a feature named “Streamer Mode” to provide you with that exact kind of protection.
Here’s a short guide to help you set it up.
How To Enable Streamer Mode
- To access this feature you will first start Discord and go to User Settings which is found on the bottom left corner of your screen.
- On the left-hand side of your screen, you will see a list of different tabs. Under App Settings, go to the Streamer Mode tab.
- Flick the switch to enable it. (You can adjust a shortcut to quickly enable and disable this feature)
Optimizing Streamer Mode Options
You’ve enabled Streamer Mode, but there are more settings to optimize.
- Automatically Enable/Disable
By enabling this setting, the feature will automatically enable if you start OBS or XSplit on your computer.
- Hide Personal Information
Hides most of your personal information such as your name, email, notes, connected accounts, etc.
Hide Invite Links
Hides invite links to the currently opened Discord server. This is to prevent your viewers from accessing your server.
- Disable Sounds
Automatically disables all discord sound effects such as entering, leaving voice channels, mentioned messages, etc.
- Disable Notification
Completely disables all notifications.
That’s all there is to it. Now you can finally start streaming safely without worrying about leaking your personal information.
