This guide will let you know how to turn on or off Passive Mode in GTA 5 Online so other players can’t attack you.
First, you will need to open the interaction menu by pressing down on the touchpad from the controller, then scroll down and navigate to the passive mode.
If enabled, you are in the passive mode, and no other player can eliminate you in GTA 5 online. Each time you load into GTA 5 online, you need to enable passive mode from the interaction menu. Passive mode prevents physical contact with other players and some free mode activities.
Passive mode is disabled in weaponized vehicles, so if you get into a vehicle with a mounted weapon or a gun, you have to disable the passive mode. Whenever you shoot someone, you also have to disable the passive mode.
