How To Get Unbanned from a Discord server

How to get Unbanned from Discord server

Discord is a great social app where you can chat via text, video and voice using different servers to connect with people who share your interests. But, while it’s a great platform for lively debates, you may find yourself involved in an online argument. This could lead to you getting banned from Discord.

There are two different types of bans from Discord. The first is a ban from a servers’ administrator, which means you would be banned from that one server but can still access all the other servers. The second is a Discord-wide ban, where you are unable to access any of Discord’s services.

Chances are, you might know what you have done to get banned. It is usually because you have violated the Discord Terms of Service. It’s important to remember that not all bans are permanent. In fact, many of them are short-term.

Luckily, there are a number of ways you can bypass your IP ban and access Discord. The most effective way is to use a VPN. Here is how to do it:

Quick guide to unblock Discord

  1. Delete the Discord folder on your computer and uninstall Discord from your device.
  2. Open up your VPN app (for example, NordVPN) and connect to a VPN server to use a new IP address
  3. Reinstall . Discord.
  4. Create a new account using another email address.
  5. Login, to Discord with your new account.

If you received a server ban rather than a site-wide ban, you can then re-join the server you were banned from. You can even disconnect from the VPN once you’ve created your new account.

Discord communication platform overview

Discord is one of the fastest-growing social apps, rising from 45 million users to more than 300 million in just over three years. It was originally built for gamers to chat via voice, video, or text while playing games like Fortnite. Its unique selling point that made it popular among gamers, is that you can add a voice channel onto the server to talk to other gamers while you play. As the platform grew, other communities also benefited from this function.

The biggest servers are still typically gaming servers, but there are also a lot of huge Anime communities on the platform. MrBeast Gaming is the largest group, with over 700,000 members. Other gaming groups, like Ascentum Among Us, Roblox and Dynamo Gaming are also hugely popular. But Discord can be used for anything, from singing contests to sport discussion groups.

You can integrate different apps with Discord. As gaming is a particularly active community, integrating apps like Twitch is a popular option, as well as the more traditional social media apps, such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Patreon. You can integrate up to over 3,000 apps via Zapier, a tool designed to seamlessly integrate apps with one another.

Main reason why Discord users get bans

If you’ve been banned on either a Discord server or the entire app, it’s probably for one of the following reasons:

  • Violating Discord’s Terms of Service
  • Suspicious IP address
  • Spamming
  • Trolling
  • Being abusive or disrespectful
  • Being a Raider (deliberately bringing a server down)

If you do any of these things, you’ll likely receive either a server ban or a platform ban

A server ban will come from a specific server’s administrator. This means you are blocked from that server, but you can still use any other Discord server.

There are two types of server ban. If you receive a kick, you will be removed from the server, but not blocked, so you could search for that server and re-join. But if you receive a traditional ban, your account, your IP address and phone number will be banned from the server.

Server ban options on Discord server

If you’ve received a ban from Discord directly, you won’t be able to access your account or any of Discord’s servers. Discord usually issues a warning or a temporary ban before your account is deleted. When you are banned by Discord, you will be notified via email, but won’t delete the account for a month, giving you time to try to resolve the situation.

How to unban yourself from a Discord server

If you’ve been IP-banned from a Discord server, you can regain access either by using a workaround, like a VPN, or by reaching out to the administrators themselves.

Here, we’ll walk you through the options to help you get back onto a Discord server. 

Use a VPN

Using a VPN is a really good way to work around a ban on Discord. To do this, you will need to delete your data and uninstall the Discord app. You’ll also need to sign up to a reliable VPN service, if you haven’t already got one.

You can then follow our step-by-step guide above to get yourself unbanned from Discord.

Set up a new account

Setting up a new Discord account can help you regain access. However, this won’t work if you’ve been banned because of a suspicious IP address, unless you use a VPN to generate a new IP for you. 

However, if you have been given a server ban from an individual server’s administrator, creating a new account and re-joining would be a straightforward way of unbanning yourself from that server. To do this, you will need a different email address. We also recommend choosing a completely different username. After all, if a server administrator has banned a username of “Derek123” on Monday, it will probably seem suspicious if “Derek1234” turns up on Tuesday.

Contact customer support or server admin

If you’ve been banned from a server, contacting the server admin is often the simplest way of unbanning yourself.

If you’ve been given a platform ban, you should contact customer support. This will help you understand why you were banned and you can work with the Customer Support team to unban you.

Use mobile or another network

If you have been banned because your IP address has been flagged as suspicious and you don’t use a VPN, you can get around this by downloading the Discord app onto your phone. Alternatively, you can try using a different network, which should alter your IP address enough to resolve the issue.

How to unblock Discord on Windows with VPN

  1. Close Discord, and go to the appdata folder on the C:\ drive on your computer. You can find it under your username folder. You may need to show hidden folders to see this. To enable hidden items, open the View tab and make sure that the Hidden Item box is ticked.
  2. Once you open this folder, click on the Local folder and Delete the Discord folder.
  3. Open your chosen VPN app and connect to a VPN server to connect to a new IP address.
  4. Reinstall the Discord app.
  5. Create a new account with a different email address and/or phone number.
  6. Login to your new account and join the server you were banned from.

How to unblock Discord on Mac with a VPN

  1. Close Discord and delete the following folder: ~/Library/Application Support/Discord.
  2. Open your Applications folder and drag the Discord app into your Trash Folder.
  3. Empty your Trash folder
  4. Restart your Mac and reinstall the Discord App.
  5. Open your chosen VPN app and connect to a VPN server to get a new IP address.
  6. Create a new account with a different email address and/or phone number.
  7. Login to your new account and join the server you were banned from.
