How To Delete A Server In Discord
Last Updated: March 12, 2021
Do you have a Discord server that you want to remove from your account? Or do you want to take out the ones that you’re not using to clean up your navigation bar? Either way, you came to the right place. In our guide below, we’ll show you how to delete a server on Discord.
Although Discord allows its users to create up to 100 servers on their account, having too much can fill up your navigation bar. As a result, it can get a little bit distracting to navigate to your active servers.
So if you have no use for your Discord server anymore, you can choose to delete it instead of leaving it indefinitely. In this way, you get to focus more on servers that have active users.
Aside from that, you’ll also need to delete all your servers or transfer their ownership before you can close your Discord account. In any case, we have here a tutorial that can help you.
We’ll teach you how to delete a server on your Discord account. Whether you’re using the desktop or mobile app, we got you covered.
How to delete one of your servers in Discord
To delete a server on Discord, you first have to navigate to your Server Settings. Once you find and click the delete button, you’ll need to type the server’s name and confirm your decision.
If you’re having trouble locating the option to delete your server follow our step-by-step tutorials below.
On your computer:
- Launch Discord on your desktop and sign-in to your account. Alternatively, you can use your favorite browser and visit Discord and use its web app.
- Open one of your servers by clicking on its icon on the left side of your screen.
- Click your server’s name at the top-left side and select Server Settings from the menu. You can also right-click the server’s icon on the left to access the menu.
- Click the red Delete Server option located at the bottom of the sidebar on the left.
- Enter the server’s name on the field and click the red Delete Server button to confirm your decision.
Please note that only the owner of a server can delete it. If you enabled two-factor authentication, you need to enter a six-digit 2FA code to finish deleting your server.
On mobile devices:
- Launch the Discord app on your home screen or app drawer and sign-in to your account.
- Tap the three horizontal lines at the upper left corner of your screen to open the menu.
- Navigate to your server and tap its name to open More Options.
Alternatively, you can tap and hold on the server’s icon on the left and select More Options.
- Tap Settings.
- Tap the three-dot icon at the upper left side of your screen and select Delete Server. Once the pop-up appears on your screen, tap Delete to confirm your decision.
You don’t need to enter your password on the mobile app to delete your account. However, you still need to add the six-digit 2FA code if you enabled two-factor authentication.
To wrap things up
Now that you know how to delete a server on Discord, you can go ahead and delete all the ones with inactive members or those you don’t need. You can also remove every server you own if you’re planning to close down your account.
Please remember that deleting a server is permanent. There’s no way to recover your chat history, server settings, media, and other data once you erase it.
