Riot Games Will Record Voice Chat in Valorant

Riot Games, the company behind Valorant, will monitor conversations in voice chat. This is all as part of the fight against hate speech and toxic players.

In the latest update to Valorant's terms of use and privacy policy, Riot Games has announced that they will be recording users of the title's built-in voice chat. All with one goal: getting rid of toxic players.

Riot has indicated that they will not "eavesdrop" and will only review the recordings if a special request is sent. The rest of the files are to be stored temporarily and will be deleted later, just like text chat logs.
