Discord automatically shows your friends the games you play. If a game uses the function Rich presence of Discord, your friends can even see where you are in the game. Here’s how to disable this feature and increase your privacy during games.
Open the Settings menu in Discord by clicking on the bottom left wheel next to your name and avatar.
Navigate to the «Game Activity» tab on the left. Uncheck the «Show running game as status message» option and Discord will no longer allow access to your gaming activity.
You can now close the Settings screen.
You can re-enable this setting at any time using the same steps if you want Discord to show others what you’re playing, game status metadata, or even what you’re listening to on Spotify.
