What happens when you unfriend someone on Discord?

When you remove a friend, they will not get a notification. If you share any servers with this person, you will not be able to view their messages. They will also be removed from your “Friends” list. They won’t be able to DM you either. If they try to message you, they will receive this message: “This message could not be delivered because you don’t share a server with the recipient or you disabled direct messages on your shared server, the recipient is only accepting direct messages from friends, or you were blocked by the recipient.” Yup, that’s a mouthful. But essentially they can still figure out that you’ve removed them. If that’s an issue for you, use method 2 from below. It’s a lot less effective than removing someone, but it’s your best option in this case.

Method 1: Unfriending

To unfriend someone on Discord, follow these steps:

  1. First of all, open up the Discord app (you can also do this on a web browser) of your choice. Log in with your information.
  2. Next, navigate to a server that you share with this person. If you don’t share a server, don’t worry! Just search for their name in the search bar at the top.
  3. Click on their Discord tag. This would be a right-click if you’re using a desktop.
  4. From the drop-down menu, select “Remove Friend”. On a mobile device, you can swipe towards the right on their Discord tag, tap the “More” option, then select “Remove Friend”.

  1. First of all, open up the Discord app (you can also do this on a web browser) of your choice. Log in with your information.

  3. Click on their Discord tag. This would be a right-click if you’re using a desktop.
  4. From the drop-down menu, check the box beside the “Mute” option. If you’re using you’re DMs to do this, swipe to the left, click “Notification” and choose a time frame to mute them for.
