Recently there seems to be a massive uptick in Discord spam, especially if you’re hanging out in lots of large groups.

People find you in a group and direct message you. It might be a scam, self-promotion or maybe just someone saying hello but one thing’s for certain, it’s damn right annoying.

If you want to make sure you don’t fall victim to any scams on Discord then you can follow the steps below to stop random people from DMing you.

How To Stop Random DMs On Discord

You can block DMs on Discord by navigating to your Privacy & Safety settings –> Server Privacy defaults. Turn off “Allow direct messages from server members”. This means random people will not be able to DM you anymore.

Follow the steps below or a more detailed guide.

Step 1 – Open Discord & Go To Settings

Open the Discord app and click on the settings COG in the bottom left hand corner.

Step 2 – Go To Privacy Settings & Turn Off Access To Private Messages

In settings click on Privacy and Safety on the left-hand side. Scroll down to “Server Privacy Defaults”.

Turn “Allow Direct Messages From Server Members” to OFF. This will be on automatically so you need to turn it off.

Once this is turned off random people will not be able to message you on Discord anymore. Enjoy a more peaceful discord environment 🙂
