Last Updated: October 11, 2021
Are you tired of the countless notifications due to mentions from your channels on Discord? Do you want to prevent your server members from using @everyone or @here on the text channels? In our guide below, we’ll show you how to change your server and channel permissions to turn off mentions from all server members. Whether you’re using the Discord mobile, desktop, or web app, we got everything you need to know.
In Discord, server members can get the attention of everyone on the server by using the @everyone mention on one of the text channels. In this way, they can alert people if they have something important to say.
However, receiving countless notifications can annoy a lot of people on the server. Although you can suppress these notifications on your end, you can also change the permissions on servers you own.
With that in mind, here’s our guide about disabling mentions on your Discord servers and channels.
How to prevent members from using the “@everyone” mention on a Discord server
If you don’t want your server members to use @everyone or @here on their messages, you can disable them on the permission settings. In this way, your members can’t annoy others by spamming these mentions on the chat.
You can disable @everyone whether you’re using Discord on your computer or mobile device. In our tutorial below, we’ll show you the steps to do so on both.
On your computer:
- Launch Discord (desktop or web app) and sign in to your account.
- Head to the server that you want to manage.
- Click the server’s name on the top left and select “Server Settings” on the menu.
- Head to the Roles tab from the menu and click @eveyrone to manage the permissions for all server members.
- Scroll down to Text Channel Permissions and make sure to turn off the “Mention @everyone, @here, and All Roles” option.
- Click the Save Changes button at the bottom of your screen to confirm your decision.
After disabling the mentions feature, your server members can’t use @everyone or @here to notify everyone on the server or channel with their messages.
On the other hand, you can just mute and suppress these mentions from your server notification settings so that you won’t receive alerts whenever someone uses them on a channel.
On the mobile app:
- Tap the hamburger icon on the top left and head to the server you want to manage.
- Tap the server’s name or the three dots icon on the sidebar and select Settings on the menu.
- Under the User Management section, select Roles.
- Tap @everyone to edit the permissions for all members.
- Under the Text Channel Permissions section, make sure to uncheck the box beside “Mention @everyone, @here, and All Roles.”
That’s how you prevent members from using the @everyone and @here mentions on the entire server. In this way, no one can abuse this option to annoy other users with countless notifications.
How to disable mentions on a channel on Discord
Although you can disable mentions for an entire server, you can opt to do so on selected channels instead. As such, you can prevent users from using @here and @everyone on important channels on your server.
On the Discord desktop or web app:
- Head to the server with the channels you want to manage.
- Hover one of the channels and click the gear icon that appears beside its name.
- Head to the Permissions tab, expand “Advanced Permissions,” and select @everyone.
- Under Text Channel Permissions, click the “X” option beside “Mention @everyone, @here, and All Roles.”
- Click the green Save Changes button at the bottom to confirm your decision.
On the mobile app:
- Go to one of your servers on Discord and open one of its channels.
- Tap the channel’s name on the top of the app and select Settings.
- Under User Management, tap Permissions and select @everyone under the Roles section.
- Scroll down and tap the “X” icon under “Mention @everyone, @here, and All Roles.”
- Tap the Save icon on the bottom right to apply all the changes.
Always remember that changing your permissions this way only affects the channel you’re currently editing. You’ll need to configure your settings on each channel where you want to disable the @everyone and @here mentions.
To wrap things up
Now that you know how to disable the @everyone and @here mentions on Discord, you can prevent server members from annoying other users by spamming these commands on the chat. Whether you want to disable the feature throughout the entire server or on selected channels, it’s all up to you.
