Be the Discord User Without a Name
Popular chatting platform Discord offers tricks for customizing how your account is shown when online, including the option to display a blank username. This option is perfect for being discrete yet still stand out and maintaining a cool mysterious identity. Although Discord has safety protocols in place, this option also protects your identity.
Creating an invisible username is not as hard as it may sound. You simply add the special tilde character (~) into the Username or Nickname text field in your account. Discord is unable to display that character, therefore, giving you a blank username.
