How to Know if Someone Is Invisible on Discord?

Are you getting annoyed with people using the “Invisible” status all the time, and you want a way to figure out if they’re offline or just invisible?

There are three ways you can see if someone is invisible on Discord:

  • They’re typing a message, and you can see the notification
  • You’ve seen them on a voice chat
  • They’ve sent you a message after asking them if they’re online

It’s not very easy to figure out if someone is faking being offline because the whole idea of Invisible Mode is to trick you into believing someone is offline.

But it’s not impossible to figure it out. Read below to see how you can do that!

Discord

1. You’ve Spotted the Three-Dot or “is typing a message…” Notification

Even if someone is invisible on Discord, you can see the three-dot icon appear on their profile picture when they’re typing something in the chat.

This only happens for private chats, not group chats. However, the “is typing a message” notification will appear on group chats too.

You can see it at the bottom of the chat window, just above the text field. If you see a notification about your “Invisible” friend that they’re sending a message, it means they’re not offline.

2. You’ve Seen Them on a Voice Chat

Someone offline on Discord can’t join voice chats. And if they’re on a voice chat, they can’t be offline. The only possibility is that the other person is invisible if you’ve seen them on a voice chat.

They may not say anything, but they’re lurking, hoping no one notices them. If your Discord server has multiple voice channels, go through them and see if your friend is in any of them.

If they’re not, move on to the last solution on this list!

3. They’ve Replied to Your Private Message

That’s right, one of the best ways to see if someone is invisible or offline is to send them a message. If they reply, then they’re online but invisible.

If they don’t reply, they might still be invisible and ignore you, but that’s unlikely. When confronted, people don’t usually ignore it.

I recommend a friend and heartful approach when you contact your friend. If you’re worried about them, ask if they’re alright.

Don’t just say something like “Hey, are you there?” because this may not get an answer from them. Instead, ask them about their health, whether they’re dealing with something, and if they need some help.

This may convince your friend to reply to your message or go online, which is a victory in my book.

Conclusion

To summarize, here’s how you can figure out if someone is online but using the “Invisible” mode on Discord:

  • They’re typing a message, and you can see the notification
  • You’ve seen them on a voice chat
  • They’ve sent you a message after asking them if they’re online

Another solution is to add them to a private server and see if they appear online on the server. It means they’re invisible if they’re online on the server but offline in your “Friends” list.
