How To Disable Threads On Discord

Are you not a fan of using threads on Discord? Do you want to prevent people from using this feature on all the text channels on your server? If so, you can manage the permissions for every server member and disable the creation of new threads from there. In our quick guide below, we’ll show you how to manage thread permission from the Discord desktop, web, or mobile app.


In Discord, users can create threads to organize their discussions within a text channel. By using this feature, the app places the messages and replies in a separate conversation on your channel’s sidebar, making it easier for users to view the conversation.

Although threads are useful on most occasions, some people don’t like to use them within their servers. Thankfully, Discord allows server admins and owners to manage role permissions to disable the feature across all channels on the server.

With that in mind, here’s our guide about turning off the threads feature on Discord.

How to disable the creation of new threads on your Discord server

If you don’t want your server members to create new threads on your Discord server, you can manage the thread permissions and disable the feature for the channel participants. You can opt to manage threads for certain roles or every member on your server.

You can manage the thread permissions for your server members whether you’re using Discord on your phone or computer. In our tutorials below, we’ll show you the steps to do so on both devices.

On your computer:

  1. Open the Discord web client or desktop app and sign in to your account.
  2. Head to the server where you want to manage thread permissions.
  3. Click the server’s name on the top left side of your screen and select “Server Settings” from the menu.

  4. Head to the Roles tab and select the permissions for everyone on the channel to manage it.

  5. Scroll down to the Text Channel Permissions and disable the “Create Public Threads” and “Create Private Threads” option.

  6. Click the green Save Changes button at the bottom of your screen to confirm your decision.

Alternatively, you can manage the thread permissions per channel you have on your server. As such, you can designate text channels where server members can start threads for discussions.

By default, creating new threads, public or private, are disabled on Community Servers for everyone.

On the Discord mobile app:

  1. Open the menu and head to the server you want to manage.
  2. Tap the server’s name at the top of the menu.
  3. Once the server options appear on your screen, select Settings.

  4. Head down to the User Management section and select Roles.

  5. Tap @everyone to manage permissions for everyone within the server.

  6. Scroll to the Text Channel Permissions section and disable “Create Public Threads” and “Create Private Threads.”

That’s how you disable the creation of new threads around your Discord server. Like we mentioned earlier, you can manage the thread permissions in each channel instead of changing them depending on the roles.

To wrap it all up

Now that you know how to disable the threads feature on your server, you can prevent your server members from using it on your text channels. Whether you disable threads for everyone or a few of your channels, it’s all up to you.
