While displaying your account level in Valorant can be a great way to show off your expertise, it may lead to toxicity from other players.
Players can turn off their Valorant account level being displayed in-game by unchecking an option in the game.

Riot Games added the account level feature in Valorant during patch 3.0 as a new way to recognize and reward players for their time played in all game modes. Your account Player Card displays a level number based on how much you play, that goes up the more time you put in. However, Riot later noticed that displaying account level in Valorant was leading to toxicity. In an Ask Valorant developer update in August 2021, senior producer Naoise Creaven said, “We’ve seen the feedback on account levels sometimes used as fuel to be toxic to another player (be it their rank-to-level ratio, or something else). We hear you and we're working on it right now (along with some other minor improvements to Account Leveling). It'll take a couple of patches to wrap development and release the change, but we intend that those of you who don't wish to share your Account Level can obscure it.” Valorant has given fans what they wanted and enabled hiding account level in the game.

Players can turn off their Valorant account level being displayed in-game with the following steps:

  1. Launch the game and navigate to the ‘Collection’ tab in the menu on top of the screen.

  2. Navigate to ‘Player cards’ on the top left of your screen and click on it.

  3. Go to the 'Level borders' tab, located next to ‘Banners’ under ‘Player Cards’.

  4. Uncheck the ‘Show my account level on my player’ option located below your current selected border. Unchecking this option will hide the account level for the player in Valorant.

Note that hiding your account level doesn’t impact your matchmaking or in-game experience in any way.

Riot has added other features to combat toxicity in Valorant. In Patch 1.07, Riot added a feature to allow players to hide their names from non-party members so that other players will only see the names of the agent they’re playing. Valorant Patch 3.0 also made some changes to the system which allowed players to hide information about their accounts.

Additionally, players can hide the names of others in their game who aren’t in their party, replacing their Riot ID with the name of the agent they’re playing as.
