How To Get Around and Bypass a Ban in Discord

One of the most common reasons for getting banned on a Discord server is for violating the Discord Terms of Service (ToS). Bans can be short-term or permanent, fair or unfair — but ultimately, it’s up to the server’s administrator to unban you.

How To Get Around and Bypass a Ban in Discord

Or is there? Let’s take a look at how you can bypass a ban in Discord.

Understanding Discord’s Bans

Like most other platforms, Discord will permanently ban users who violate the company’s Terms of Service (ToS). But, that isn’t the only threat on the platform. Administrators and moderators can ban you from a Discord server or channel too.

Before we dive into teaching you how to bypass a Discord ban, let’s first identify where or how you were banned. Here’s a list of the varying types of a Discord ban:

  • Server Ban – This means that you are banned from one Discord server (and its channels). But, you can join other Discord servers without any problems. A server ban means you’ve either aggravated an admin or violated the server’s rules.
  • Discord Ban – When Discord bans your account, you can’t join any servers. Discord bans users when they’ve violated the company’s ToS.

Another point we’d like to make before teaching you to bypass a Discord ban is that there may be no need to bypass it all. There are varying levels of Discord bans. There’s a chance that your account will go live again on its own.

Before Discord permanently bans your account, you will receive an email letting you know the company’s Trust & Safety team has noticed your behavior. If you receive one of these emails, you may want to take a break from the platform for a while or at least stop doing whatever they cite in the email.

So, if you have been banned from a server for harassing people on the server, and you evade the ban to go right back and harass those people again, then you are putting yourself in the line of fire. Keep this in mind when implementing the suggestions listed below.

How to Evade a Discord Ban

There are two common ways to evade a ban in Discord. First, you can use a VPN. Or, you can use a mobile device to trick the server.

We’ll take a look at both methods below, and you can choose whichever one best suits your needs.

How to Evade a Discord Ban – Use a VPN

One of the best tools for overcoming any ban is a VPN. This Virtual Private Network masks your IP Address and your Location. When you receive a ban on Discord, the company takes note of your device and denies access. It is for this reason that we’ll show you how to use a VPN to bypass a ban first.

There are a lot of VPNs available today, but for this article, we’ll use ExpressVPN.

Using a Computer

You can use a VPN to bypass a ban on both Mac and PC computers.

On a PC:

If you’re using a PC, you’ll first need to remove all of your Discord data from the machine. It may look complicated, but don’t worry; just follow these simple steps:

  1. Close your Discord desktop client.
  2. Navigate to the %appdata% folder located in the C: drive. Note: To find your %appdata% folder easily, use the Win+R keyboard shortcut and type ‘%appdata%’ in the box.
  3. Click ‘Enter’ on your keyboard, and you’ll go straight to the folder you need. Right-click on ‘Discord.’
  4. Select ‘Delete.’

Once you’ve deleted the Discord folder, it’s time to get up and running again.

  1. Activate ExpressVPN by clicking the Power icon at the top.
  2. Launch the Discord client on your desktop.
  3. Create a new account with a new e-mail address.
  4. Log into Discord with your new account, and join the server where you’re banned.

On a Mac

Mac users can follow these instructions. Just like the instructions for PC users, you’ll first need to delete the Discord data on your Mac.

  1. Open the Finder on your Mac and click on ‘Go’ at the top. Then, click ‘Go to Folder’ in the menu.
  2. Type ~/Library into the pop-up box and click enter.
  3. Double-click on ‘Application Support.’
  4. Right-click on the Discord folder. Then, click ‘Move to trash’ and confirm to delete all of the Discord data from your Mac.

Now, you can activate ExpressVPN and get back to chatting on Discord. Here’s how:

  1. Open ExpressVPN on your Mac and click the Power button to activate it.
  2. Once active, open Discord and create a new account.
  3. Now, you can join the server you’d like to join.

Using a Smartphone

Fortunately, you aren’t bound to using a computer to bypass a Discord ban. You can use your smartphone too. The instructions are pretty much the same for iOS and Android users.

First, you’ll want to uninstall the application from your phone. This will remove any app data stored on your phone that Discord may detect when we sign back in again. Upon deleting the app, activate your VPN.

Now, reinstall Discord and create a new account. As long as your VPN actively masks your IP Address, you’ll have no problems bypassing Discord’s ban.

If you have yet to sign up for a VPN, you can use the following method to bypass a Discord ban.

Using A Mobile Device & Data Plan

When you are banned from a server while using the desktop Discord client, the account identifier you were logged in with and your unique IP address are what the Discord server uses to identify you as the target of a ban.

As such, you can’t just create a new account from the same machine — the IP address is still flagged, meaning the server will still be able to identify you.

However, if you have a mobile device with a data plan, then you can use this to trick the server and get around the ban.

Here’s how:

  1. Turn off the WiFi on your mobile device and leave cellular data on.
  2. Launch the Discord mobile app on your phone.
  3. Create a new account with a new e-mail address.
  4. Log into Discord with your new account and join the server where you were banned.
  5. Log out of Discord and turn off your mobile data.
  6. Log back into Discord on the desktop with your new account. It should still be allowed to access the server.

Final Thoughts

As you can see,  bypassing a Discord ban is fairly easy. By using either a mobile device or a VPN, you can create a new account and bypass Discord’s IP detection to rejoin the server where you were banned.

if you get banned from 1 account, make a new one, yeah no s**t sherlock. this is not bypassing in anyway. yeah you have to take care of the ip thing, but if this has happened to someone, they’d already figure that out instead of having to read this long a*s article. what a waste of time.
TheeMan says:
some discord servers have mods/admins that abuse their powera nd seems to be wide spread these days
yeah, no. says:
Bruh what the hell is this?
If you’ve been banned, regardless if it was justified or not, you do not be that person who bypasses the ban. Even if this doesn’t directly violate the ToS, many servers state that you do not bypass a ban for their servers or bots. If you have a dispute with a mod/admin, you dm them or someone who can get into contact with them. However, if you were banned for a reason, they do not want you coming back. Do not enable toxic people, stalkers or what have you who have been banned for a good reason to try and get around this because of an exploit. On the other hand, if you’ve been wrongfully banned because of mod/admin being toxic or abusing their power(s), you do the right thing by contacting them or submitting a ban appeal. If you did nothing wrong but you still try to find a loophole, you’re making yourself look worse.

All this boils down to is basic human decency and common sense, which is fairly simply to achieve.

I had a friend that got me banned just for requesting him to join a server I made, I only sent him a request once and I didn’t know why at first and I also didn’t know about the ToS. Thanks for the info though.

let me guess, yandere simulator?

This is an unreliable method to use. Almost everyone knows how to use VPN or even use a different providers.

If everyone keeps doing this then there’ll be little to no IP address to be permanently banned as IP address are non renewable.

A moderator hates me so much he bans me for no reason. As he nails the way I’m talking (saying I’m sorry too much) he goes with the hammer abuse. I had to bought a new pc just to get in and used various vpn, asked help from other friends and even bought a wifi. This server is so important for me, and I learn something new there everyday. And he also reports me, which then discord force delete my account for something I didn’t do. What should I do?!

The first strategy is the one I tried.

I turned off my WiFi
And made a new account.

And it worked. I was IP banned, but I still got in!
Whoever wrote this is a genius.

Animus says:
Is there any way to get back into a server without creating a new account? Why doesn’t it work when you’re on the same account, even with a vpn?
TheAwesome98 says:
Because, not only are you banned from IP, you are banned from the account, too! You can make a temporary account and say, “Can you unban [USERNAME HERE]? I got banned for no reason” wait for yes answer. Delete account. Sign into the old account. Go to server. Done!
