Discord is a popular communication platform that allows users to chat, voice call, and video call with friends, family, and others. It’s widely used by online gamers and communities to interact with each other and plan games together.

 Sometimes you may come across a user who is making you uncomfortable or harassing you. In such cases, you may want to block them on Discord. 

We’ll explain why someone may want to block another user on Discord and provide instructions for blocking and unblocking someone on the Discord desktop and mobile app. 

We’ll also discuss what happens when you block someone on Discord and discuss how to set healthy boundaries in online interactions.

Blocking someone on Discord will prevent them from sending you direct messages, and they will also be unable to see your online status, send you friend requests, оr add you to their groups. 

To block someone on the Discord desktop app, follow these steps:

  1. Right-click on the user’s name in the chat or friend list
  2. Select “Block” from the drop-down menu

Follow the steps in the next section tо unblock them.

 The blocked user will not be notified when you block them, but they will see that their interactions have been blocked by visiting their end.

It is a good idea to block someone if you are experiencing online harassment or bullying from them. 

However, be aware that blocking someone should be a final step after other methods, such as muting or reporting, have been considered.

What Happens When You Block Someone on Discord

When you block someone on Discord, the blocked user cannot send you direct messages, see your online status, send you friend requests, or add you to groups. 

They also won’t be able to see your messages or activities within any server or group with whom you share a mutual membership.

Blocking someone on Discord does not delete any previous messages or interactions you’ve hаd with them. 

Those will still be visible to both parties. However, it would stop any further communication from that user to you.

To block someone on Discord is not a permanent action. You can always unblock them later if you choose to do so.

Blocking is only affecting your account, not the account of the user you blocked. 

They will still be able to message and interact with others on Discord, as usual.

How to Unblock Someone on Discord

If you’ve blocked someone оn Discord but changed your mind or resolved the issue with the user, you can easily unblock them. 

Here are the step-by-step instructions for unblocking on both the Discord desktop and mobile app:

For Discord desktop app:

  1. Click on the user settings icon, which is the gear icon located in the bottom left of the Discord window
  2. Select the “Privacy & Safety” tab
  3. Under “Blocked Users“, find the user you wish to unblock
  4. Click on the “X” tо the right of their name
  5. Confirm the unblock in the pop-up window

For Discord mobile app:

  1. Tap on the user settings icon in the bottom right corner of the screen
  2. Select “Privacy and Safety
  3. Tap on “Blocked Users
  4. Locate the user you want to unblock
  5. Tap on the “X” to the right of their name
  6. Confirm the unblock in the pop-up window

Once you unblock someone, they can send you direct messages, see your online status, and add you tо the groups again.

Unblocking someone does not automatically add them as your friend. You’ll have to manually send them a friend request if you want to interact with them again.

Conclusion

 Blocking on Discord can effectively set healthy boundaries in online interactions. You can easily block and unblock users on the Discord desktop and mobile app.

This is a final step, and there are other options, such as muting, reporting, or seeking assistance from a server admin or Discord staff should be considered before blocking someone. 

 Unblocking someone does not automatically restore the friendship, and the user needs to send a friend request to interact again.
