Hiding your account level is a good way to avoid toxicity from veterans when you are new to the game.

Showing off a high account level can be a part of the experience for veteran players, but some players like to keep their account levels hidden. It can help prevent toxicity towards low-level players in some cases or you could simply hide your information for privacy reasons. Hiding your account level in Valorant is really easy and you can toggle it anytime you want. Here’s what you need to do if you want to hide or show your account level in Valorant.

Why should you hide your account level in Valorant

The account level feature was added in Valorant to help players show off their commitment to the game. The more you play, the higher your account level is. However, it can lead to some toxicity. If you are a very high-level player and are of a lower rank, others can act hostile toward you. Similarly, lower-level players can also face toxicity from veterans.

While Riot Games is working on curbing toxicity in the game, it can be difficult to stop everyone. Taking preventive measures is one of the few ways to avoid facing any toxicity because of your account level.
