A lot of people wonder about the point of privacy on Discord if they cannot know exactly what type of “privacy” they are in for.
A lot of eyebrows have been raised with the question of what your friends on Discord can and cannot see, and knowing if your friends can see if you are on a voice channel in a server they are not part of is one of many.
Even with the invisibility feature on the Discord app, one cannot be so sure of what to expect when it comes to those settings.
With the talks and feedback since the latest release, most of the highly asked questions about the messaging have been answered by one of the team members who are an avid Discord user.
Here is a bit of everything we know about friends, privacy, and voice channels within Discord.
Can My Friends See That I’m On a Voice Channel in a Server They Are Not In?
The simple answer is no, your mutual friends cannot see the voice channel you are on or in as long as they are not on the same Discord server as you.
The only scenario where this would be possible would be if they are already on the same server with you and even at that, they don’t even have to be friends with you on Discord.
This means that you do not need to be mutual friends with someone on Discord for them to know what voice channel you are on as long as they are on the same server as you.
Does your name show up while appearing invisible in a locked voice channel on Discord?
Yes, your name will be visible on a locked Discord voice channel even if you have set your profile to invisible.
As far as a Discord server goes, your name will be listed or shown to anyone when they click on the members’ list.
Additionally, if they look up your username too on the channel search box, you will appear and all your texts in the channel.
Can other people see what Discord servers you are in?
Yes, they can.
However, there are two criteria where this can be accomplished; firstly, if they are your mutual friends on Discord and also on the same server as you.
Secondly, if they are not your mutual friends but are on the same Discord server as you are.
Other than that piece of information is completely hidden from anyone on Discord that doesn’t meet the two criteria stated above.
That is all regarding what your friends and the public on Discord can and cannot see about your activity on the app.
As long as you have gone through this guide, you will find out just how much privacy you have on a voice channel on Discord; whether locked or not.
