Among Us Wiki
This article is for the local game settings.
For the lobby options, see options.

The settings is a UX element and section on the main menu, accessed by clicking the gear below How to Play and to the right of announcements. The settings also appear in the top-right corner on-screen within the lobby and during gameplay. They change certain aspects of the game, such as controls and sound volume.


The settings interface displays several game settings that the player can modify, such as interface language and controls. The available settings are split into two different tabs: "general" and "data".

Under the "general" tab, players may switch their controls. On mobile, the available options are "touch" and "joystick", while on PC, the available options are "keyboard" and "keyboard+mouse". On the Nintendo Switch edition, controls cannot be customized. Selecting "joystick" on mobile unlocks an additional option to change the joystick size. The volume for sound effects and background music can be adjusted with sliders underneath the controls on all systems. Under the volume sliders is a "censor chat" button, which toggles a chat censor. If enabled, certain words and phrases will be censored in the chat with asterisks, but if it is disabled it simply has no effect.

The "data" tab is only accessible when viewing the settings on the main menu. Under it, the player's language can be set, and a "privacy policy" button is shown below, which sends the player to Innersloth's privacy policy on their website. The language menu only affects interface, however. Below is a list of all the available languages.

  • English
  • Spanish (Latin-America)
  • Spanish (Spain)
  • Portuguese (Brazil)
  • Portuguese
  • Korean
  • Russian
  • Dutch
  • Cebuano
  • French
  • German
  • Italian
  • Japanese
  • Simplified Chinese
  • Traditional Chinese
  • Irish


  • If a player reduces the resolution and then brings it back to normal, they can see some parts of the left side with full lights.
  • If players open the settings menu during a game and while they are walking, they will move automatically until they hit a wall. This is presumably also a bug.
