Streamer Mode is a quick and easily accessible feature to hide sensitive or personal information when you're in the middle of streaming to your fans. This feature not only lets people in the Discord servers that you’re in know when you’re live, but also protects certain personal information from flashing on the screen that maybe you didn’t want your viewers to see.
What this article covers:
How to Enable Streamer Mode
1. To enable Streamer Mode, first access your User Settings by pressing the cog wheel next to your Username at the bottom left of your Discord client. Navigate to the Streamer Mode tab in the left hand panel.
2. Enable Streamer Mode is the main toggle for enabling / disabling Streamer Mode and allows you to manually turn the feature off and on. A check mark means it’s enabled, and no check mark means it’s disabled.
You can also tell when Streamer Mode is enabled because a bar appears above your Discord letting you know.
You can remove the Streamer Mode banner and disable Streamer Mode itself by pressing “Disable”. If you only want to remove the banner, but still have Streamer Mode enabled, you can press the “x” in the banner.
Additionally, you can assign a keybind to toggle turning Streamer Mode off or on. Extra handy if you need to hide sensitive info on the fly.
How can I customize Streamer Mode?
On the Streamer Mode page, there are various different settings to tailor your Streamer Mode and customize how much information you do or don't want to hide with Streamer Mode.
Discord can detect if you're using OBS or Xsplit, and automatically enable Streamer Mode when the software is running and you’re live streaming.
Hide Personal Information
If you have the Hide Personal Information option selected, enabling Streamer Mode will hide any instance of Discord discriminator tags, emails, or stream connections for example.

If a display name is set under Profiles, that name will be shown completely even with Streamer Mode turned on, but the username will remain hidden.
Hide Instant Invite Links
Enabling this option will block any invite codes still listed in your Server Settings > Invites tab:
Disable Sounds & Disable Notifications
Enabling these options will block any of Discord's notifications on desktop as well as prevent channel join and notification sounds.
And that wraps up everything in Streamer Mode's privacy settings. Simple. Effective. Awesome!
