The gaming industry depends on a lot more than just games to keep itself up and going. Accompanying programs like Discord are essential to gamers and non-gamers alike when it comes to communication as its one of the most popular VoIP programs out there. 

Of course, with sheer popularity also comes the same problems social media networks face. Discord does handle user privacy rather well however and you’ll find every option you need to protect yourself on the app. 

In this article, we’re talking about unblocking and blocking peole on Discord.

Unblocking someone on Discord

There are a couple of ways you can do this on Discord, all requiring just a few clicks. 

Unblocking someone on PC/Browser

If you’re using the Discord desktop app, follow these steps.

Step 1: Open Discord and head over to your Friends section. 

Step 2: Select the Blocked section to see who you have blocked. 

Step 3: Click the unblock button next to their name. 

Unblocking on the Discord phone app

Unblocking people on the Discord phone app works slightly differently. Here’s how.

  • Open Discord and tap your profile picture in the bottom right. 
  • Tap Account.
  • Tap Blocked users.
  • From the list of blocked users, tap Unblock on the one you want to unblock. 

Do keep in mind that you’ll have to add these users as friends again. However, they should be able to reach out to you just fine once you’ve unblocked them. 

Check out our detailed explainer on what happens when you block someone on Discord here for more information. 

Blocking users on Discord

As you can probably imagine, blocking users on Discord isn’t very hard either. 

Blocking users on PC/Browser

If you’re using Discord in your browser or via the desktop app, blocking someone is rather simple. Just open a conversation with the person you want to block. This could be a DM or channel conversation in a server. Right-click their name and select Block. 

And that’s all it takes to block someone on Discord. 

Blocking users on the Discord phone app

Blocking users on the phone app works pretty much the same way here. 

  • Open a conversation with the person you want to block. Press and hold their profile name or image to open the context menu.
  • Tap the three horizontal dots in the top right.
  • Select Block.
