Discord Best Practices
Below, we will cover a few Discord best practices we recommend.
Discord can feel like a scary place when you’re first getting started. It’s a fairly new space, and scammers might try to trick you or steal from you if you don't take the proper precautions. Here are some guidelines to follow to help you avoid those scenarios.
  1. 1.
    Use a strong password on your Discord account. We recommend creating one that includes random numbers, symbols, and both lower and uppercase letters.
  2. 2.
    Do not allow server members to DM you (you can configure this in your user settings, or by right-clicking the server icon on your left-hand side and navigating to “privacy” in the drop-down menu). It is recommended to do this for all servers you are a member of.
  3. 3.
    Turn on two-factor authentication. It’s a required setting for moderators and administrators on your server, and it’s just a good idea in general, as it adds an extra layer of security to your account.
  1. 1.
    Do not click on any links or embeds sent to you, EVER. Malicious attackers have been known to send seemingly innocent messages/links claiming you can get access to free Discord Nitro codes, cryptocurrency, whitelist spots, and giveaways. Don’t trust them.
  2. 2.
    Turn off notifications. Discord can get overwhelming quick if you allow notifications for all servers you are a member of. Click “Notifications” in your user settings to choose how you’d like to receive notifications, if any.
  3. 3.
    Never share personal, sensitive information. One of the easiest ways that scammers get ahold of your assets is by simply tricking you into giving them your seed phrase. Be extremely cautious of everyone and don’t trust anyone asking for your information, even if they seem harmless.
