Frequently Asked Questions

What Happens When You Unfriend Someone on Discord?

You and the other person you unfriended will no longer show up in each other’s friends lists. However, either of you can still send private messages to one another.

What Happens When You Block Someone on Discord?

When you block someone on Discord, you won’t be able to see each other’s messages in shared servers, and you won’t be able to message one another.

Does Discord Notify Someone When You Unfriend or Block Them?

No. Like most social media websites, Discord doesn’t notify users when someone unfriends or blocks them. However, if you unfriend or block them, you won’t show up on their friends list.

Also, if you have your profile set to only receive messages from friends, or if you block them, their message won’t go through, and they’ll get a message from Discord indicating that their message could not go through. (See the following.)
