    What Happens When You Block Someone on Discord?

    There are a few things that happen when you block someone on Discord. For starters, the user will no longer be on your Friends list and they can no longer contact you, and vice versa. If they try to send you a message, they’ll receive an error message.

    Additionally, you can’t see any messages the blocked user sends in a shared server. However, the blocked user can still see messages from you in a server. The blocked user will also always appear offline to you, but they can see your current online status.

    Blocking someone on Discord will sometimes resolve issues you may be facing, but if the problems persist or escalate, consider reporting the user to Discord.
