How To Turn On Discord Streamer Mode
- On your Discord App landing page, click on User Settings (indicated by a gear icon – as shown below).
- Navigate to Streamer Mode on the sidebar and check Enable Streamer Mode.
You now have Streamer Mode enabled on your account.
You can also assign a keybind to turn Streamer Mode on/off with the push of a button. This is handy for regular streamers – removing the hassle of navigating menus during sessions.
Streamer Mode Options
Now let’s look at individual options available in this mode. By toggling these on/off, you can further tailor your streaming experience to your preference.
If you have this option turned on, Discord automatically activates Streamer Mode whenever you run any OBS (Open Broadcasting Software) or XSplit program.
This is perfect for forgetful types who don’t want to be bothered with toggling the feature on/off.
Hide Personal Information
When this option is on, Streamer Mode automatically hides any instance that includes Discord Tags, emails, connected accounts, and other similar information. It also hides notes that you’ve left on your friend’s accounts.
Hide Invite Links
This option blocks all invite codes still listed in your Invites tab. This also hides any invites that you have created for others.
This prevents your viewers from using the codes to join private Discord servers that you or your friends are in.
This option mutes all incoming sounds such as message notifications, new users joining, and several system effects.
More than privacy protection, this option gives your viewers a better experience by muting sounds that could disrupt your stream.
This is possibly the option that most streamers want to turn on.
This blocks all incoming desktop and client notifications from showing on your stream. This hides personal stuff like private message previews, download notifications, and other sensitive information.
There you have it: a full rundown of Discord’s very helpful Streamer Mode.
By utilizing this mode, you can continue to provide quality content to your viewers without the threat of accidentally flashing sensitive and private information on-screen.
