Discord is the best software on the market if you want to chat with your friends or team players when playing games. It is absolutely the best gaming app to connect with other gamers. But sometimes, you don’t want anyone to know that you are online or playing. If you want to do that, you don’t have to uninstall discord or delete your account, you can simply switch your gaming activity, check out this article.
But if you truly want to appear offline so no one can bother you. You can. With that being said, it is not hard to do once you learn how to.
There are several different status types on Discord. If you want to learn more about them, click here. The default one is Online, which you want to get rid of!
Discord does not have offline status, or it has, but under a different name Invisible.
How to look like you are offline on Discord
- Open your discord application on your Windows or Mac [if you want to do this on your smartphone, check out the tutorial below this one]
- At the bottom left of the app, tap on your profile icon
- Switch from Online to “Invisible”
Congratulations, now you appear offline to all your Discord friends. If you want to make sure that you have invisible status. Look at your profile icon. You should have a grey circle between your profile icon and your username (it was green before, aka you were online).
How to go Invisible on Discord to appear offline on Smartphone
- Open Discord on Android or iPhone
- Tap on your profile icon at the bottom right corner of the app
- In “USER SETTINGS,” tap on “Set Status”
- Tap on “Invisible”
As we have mentioned before, you can switch off your activity status, which will stop showing which games you are playing. If you just want to hide that, it is probably better to switch it off.
But if you want to stay completely off the grid, then changing your status to Invisible is the right choice.
Does your game activity show when using invisible status?
No, when you are using invisible status, Discord won’t show what game you are playing. So you don’t have to set up both settings. Changing your status is enough.
If you’re invisible, it won’t display the game you’re playing.— Discord (@discord) May 22, 2018
Both of these settings are easily reversible, and you can set them back to the original setting at any point in time.
