Is it safe to use Discord on a browser?

Using Discord on a browser is technically not as safe as using it through a computer or mobile app.

Going online will always carry certain security risks:

– Data theft
– Ransomware
– Malware
– Social engineering meant to deceive you
– Phishing attacks

Even if you’re using Discord on your browser, you’re still online and using an internet page.

However, if you follow common sense, you should be safe. Your security and privacy should be in no danger if you don’t:

– Click on any suspicious links
– Download suspicious attachments from strangers
– Give your personal information to strangers

As always, 90% of the time, it’s the user’s fault for undermining their online privacy and security.

Can you get someone’s IP from Discord?

Yes, you can get someone’s IP from Discord, which is quite worrying if you think about it.

Here’s how to do that:

– Enable Developer Mode on your Discord account
– Copy the other person’s ID (right-click on their name and select “Copy ID“)
– Go to “” and paste the ID
– Click on “Resolve
– Voila, you have their IP now

What you do with it is up to you. But someone can get your IP from Discord by knowing your user ID.

And the user ID is publicly available as long as the other person is your friend or on a server, you’re on.

There’s no difference between the Discord app and Discord used on a browser. People can find out your IP just the same!

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

I'll present the facts as they are, and offer quick and easy solutions for them.
