How to know if someone has blocked you on Discord

Like other messaging apps, Discord also lets you block users you don't want to engage with. While it's easy to block someone on Discord, sometimes it can be difficult to determine if you've been blocked. With that in mind, we've compiled a list that will help you find out if someone has blocked you on Discord.

Check if Someone Has Blocked You on Discord: 5 Effective Ways (2022)

React to user message

The easiest way to check if someone has blocked you on Discord is to react to their messages. Open the person's direct message history and react to a message they sent you . If you are able to react to the message, you are not blocked. If you get a shake effect when reacting to a user's message, that user has blocked you. If you don't have a personal chat history or all Discord messages have been deleted, you can locate the person's message on a common server and try to react to it.

Check your friends list

One way to quickly check if someone has blocked you is to check your friends list . If you were previously friends on the chat app and the user suddenly disappeared from your friends list (accessible by clicking on the Discord logo in the left panel), they have either blocked you or removed you from their friends list. Although this is not a conclusive proof suggesting that the user has blocked you, you should check out the next section to confirm the same.

Send a friend request

If you haven't seen the user in your friends list, try sending them a friend request . If the friend request is accepted, you are not blocked. On the other hand, if you see a “Friend request failed – Hm, didn’t work. Please check for correct capitalization, spelling, spaces and numbers ” error message, you can be sure that you have been blocked.

Check user information in Profile section

Another viable method to see if someone has blocked you on Discord is to check the person's user information. If you don't see their bio and the user has connected Spotify to Discord to host Spotify listening parties, chances are they've blocked you on Discord. However, keep in mind that this method is not as effective as others as they could have just removed the bio and hide the app integration from their profile.

Try sending a Discord message

Finally, a method for the brave here. You can message them to check if they have blocked you. If a user has blocked you, your message will not be delivered . Instead, you'll see an automated message from the Clyde Discord bot.

“Your message could not be delivered. This is usually because you don't share a server with the recipient or the recipient only accepts direct messages from friends,” reads the error message. In this case, you can confirm that the person has blocked you.
