10 Methods To Appear Offline On Discord

Discord: it’s the modern-day digital watering hole for gamers, communities, and even professional groups. As much as I adore the platform for its versatility and interaction opportunities, there are times when I just need to be invisible. We’ve all had those days, right? But how do you appear offline on Discord without actually being offline?

I decided to get my hands dirty and dig into the world of Discord settings and hacks. After some tinkering and testing, I found not one but ten methods for appearing offline on Discord. So, if you’re looking to gain some digital invisibility, here’s the lowdown.

1. Set Your Status To Invisible

  • Step 1: Open your Discord app on your computer.
  • Step 2: Look towards the bottom left corner. You’ll see your profile picture.
  • Step 3: Click on your profile picture. A small pop-up window with four options will appear – ‘Online’, ‘Idle’, ‘Do Not Disturb’, and ‘Invisible’.
  • Step 4: Click on ‘Invisible’. You’ve now successfully set your status to invisible!
