I’ll briefly explain what each of them does:

  • Hide My Name From Players Outside My Party: Your Valorant name will be displayed as the agent you are playing for everyone in the game except your party members. If you are playing Sova, your in game name will just appear as Sova so you won't have to constantly change your Valorant name.

  • Use Generic Names For Players Outside My Party: The Valorant names of everyone except your party members will be displayed as their agent names. Fans can track your matches by using the names of other people in your matches.

  • Auto-Reject Friend Requests: Popular streamers get spammed with friend requests once their Valorant Riot ID is known to the public. Enabling this setting will help clear the clutter of unwanted friend requests you receive.

  • Only Allow Party Requests From Friends: People outside your Friends List cannot invite you to their parties, helping you solo queue or join your friends' parties in peace while you are streaming Valorant to your viewers.

You can have any combination of these settings turned on or off.
