How to Know If Someone Blocked You on Discord

Hello, I’m Tracy from Today, we’re going to talk about how to know if someone blocked you on Discord.

Discord is a popular platform for gamers and other communities to interact, but sometimes, relations can sour leading to users blocking each other. But how can you tell if you’ve been blocked? Here’s how.

Signs of Being Blocked on Discord

No Direct Messages

If you’ve been blocked on Discord, the most apparent sign is that you will no longer be able to send direct messages to the person who blocked you. When you attempt to send a message, Discord will not send it, and there will be no notification or error message.

Invisible Status

Secondly, the person who blocked you will appear offline in your Discord list, regardless of their actual online status. This can be a little confusing, as it is the same status as when someone is genuinely offline.

No Message History

Lastly, you won’t see the previous message history with the person who blocked you, giving an impression that you have had no interactions in the past.

How to Confirm If Blocking Occurred

Sadly, Discord doesn’t directly inform you if you’ve been blocked. A way around this is to create a group chat including the person you suspect has blocked you. When sending an invite to the said user, Discord will inform you that the invite cannot be sent due to them blocking you.

While this method confirms your suspicion, please remember to respect the privacy of other users and their decision to block.

Final thoughts

While it can be frustrating to be blocked or not know if you were blocked, remember that communication is key. If you’ve had a dispute with someone on Discord, trying to openly communicate and resolve the differences can often be the best course of action.
