Discord is becoming more and more popular. It started as an app for gamers but now everyone from crypto enthusiasts to businesses uses the app to communicate with each other. If you’re a regular in discord you may have seen some people who appear to have an “invisible” name. This is just a name with a blank space. All you can see is their avatar. However, if you try to change your name and just insert blank spaces it won’t work.

While this isn’t a feature built into Discord it’s actually quite easy to create this effect. In this tutorial, we are going to break down step by step how you can create an invisible name on Discord. You can do this for both your channel nickname and also your main Discord name. Get ready to confuse your friends in the chat. Let’s jump in.

How To Create An Invisible Name In Discord

I’m first going to go through the steps to creating an invisible name on Discord. If you want to know exactly how it works then scroll to the bottom of the page for an explanation.

There are two places to have an invisible name in Discord. You have your Discord-wide name which people who private message you will see. You also have Nicknames in each server you are in. If you only want to trick your friends in a specific server we would only recommend changing your channel nickname. Both methods are shown below.

By using something called a Unicode character, which the Discord app doesn’t recognize, your name will appear as invisible as the app doesn’t render those characters.

If people are viewing your name from a Web Browser using the Discord web app they will be able to see the Unicode however your name will be invisible when using the Discord app.

If you are just looking for Unicode text that is currently working you can copy and paste some of the current working examples below.


How To Change Your Discord Name To Invisible

  1. Copy the Unicode character in the box below. You can do this by highlighting the code and click on (CMD + C) Mac or (CTRL + C) Windows. You will need to copy both characters as Discord does not allow single-character names.
  1. Open Discord and navigate to the User settings button in the bottom left of Discord.

How Does It Work

It’s clear that Discord doesn’t have this feature built-in as it does not let us simply use blank spaces in our name. When you see someone on Discord with an invisible name, it is not actually blank. There is a unicode character (The one you copied and pasted) in their name but it is just not visible. Every character is assigned a unique numeric value.

For example, the unicode character for the number one is (U+0031). When we are creating an invisible name in Discord we are using the Unicode version of a character to trick Discord into showing our name as invisible.
