Can You See What Discord Servers Someone Is In?

Do you want to see what Discord servers your friend is in? You can do that but only for mutual servers, not for all servers.

In other words, you can’t see if your friend is on a Discord server if you’re not on that server as well. If you still want to see which servers you share with your friend, read below!

I’ve prepared a step-by-step guide to help you do that!

1. Select “Friends‘ – “All

Select "Friends' - "All" on Discord
Select “Friends‘ – “All

Once you open Discord, look for the “Friends” option at the top of the page. Select it, and you should see several more options appear at the top of the screen.

They are:

  • All
  • Pending
  • Blocked
  • Add Friend

Select “All” to show a list of all your friends.

2. Click on your friend

Click on your friend in an open Discord window
Click on your friend

After you select “All“, a list of all your friends on Discord will appear. Select the friend you’re searching for, and then continue with the guide.

3. Click on your friend’s username

Click on your friend's username in an open Discord window.
Click on your friend’s username

Once you click on your friend’s username, you’ll open a chat with them. Afterward, you’ll need to once again click on their username at the top of the Discord page.

Do that and move on with the guide!

4. Select “Mutual Servers

Select "Mutual Servers" after having clicked on the name of a friend on Discord.
Select “Mutual Servers

This is the last step. Once you open your friend’s profile page, you can find the “Mutual Servers” option under your friend’s username.

Click on it, and you should see all the mutual servers you and your friend are on. That’s all you can do because you can’t see if your friend is on other servers that you’re not on.


To summarize, you can only see if your friend is in groups that you’re in. These are called mutual servers on Discord.

Otherwise, you can’t see if your friend is on any other servers that you’re not in. This might be disappointing, but there’s nothing you can do other than ask your friend directly.

If you have any questions about this topic, feel free to comment below, and I’ll try to help you as best as possible.

Is owning a Discord server free?

Yes, owning a Discord server is free, and no premium features are involved.

You can invite members, kick them, ban them, name moderators, create roles, create server-specific emojis, etc.

Discord makes all of these features free. If you want to acquire Discord Nitro, you’ll get additional benefits like custom emojis, a server boost, Discord discovers tags and more.

But Discord Nitro is not necessary to enjoy Discord with your friends. It’s also free to delete, rename, and own multiple servers simultaneously.

How do you see what’s in a Discord server without joining?

You can’t see what’s in a Discord server without joining it. There’s no “Preview” the server before joining it.

Users have been asking for such a feature for a long time, but Discord hasn’t made it yet.

If you want to see what’s in a server without joining it, how about you ask a member to tell you about it?

If you don’t know any of the server’s members, then there’s nothing you can do. Join the server, see what it’s about, and quit if you want to.

Unforeseen errors, bugs, and other problems make their use of social media problematic. These things will be discussed amply in the guides on Whizcase.
