Unless the account user allows you, we wouldn’t recommend trying to get anyone’s IP from Discord or any other platform. IP addresses count as personal data in some cases, and it is illegal to find someone’s IP and use it for malicious purpose.
Is it possible to get someone’s IP from Discord?
Getting someone’s IP directly from Discord is not possible, but unfortunately, some people use malicious links in chat and try to trick users into clicking on them. Once the user clicks on the link, it redirects it to a website that can be legit in some cases. And then the person who owns the website can check their visitor IP addresses in the visit log.
And it’s not just Discord; it can happen on Snapchat, Instagram, Facebook, Whatsapp, or any other social media platform. So if a stranger sends you a link in chat, it could be a hacker trying to get your IP for malicious purpose.
You can’t obtain a user’s IP address through Discord =]

And as you can see, Discord tweeted that it’s not possible to obtain a user’s IP address. So don’t even try unless you want to get in trouble.
What is a Discord IP Resolver? Is it possible to obtain someone’s IP using it?
Discord IP resolver is a tool that pretends to pull IP addresses of Discord users. It does not work, look at the red circle on this image to figure out why.
Some people think it’s possible to pull discord IP addresses by using Wireshark (a network protocol analyzer) but just like those fake IP resolver tools it does not work.
How to IP Ban Someone in Discord?
If someone is misbehaving or doing something that’s against the terms of service of the platform, you can block them from accessing your server.
Step 1: Open Discord
Step 2: Sign-In using your credentials
Step 3: Select the server and look for the user you want to ban
Step 4: You’ll be able to see if they are hosted on text or VoIP channel
Step 5: Right-click on the name of the user and a menu will appear
Step 6: Click on ban, and you’ll see a pop-up for deleting comments of the user you are banning, and you can also enter the reason for banning
Step 7: Click on the ban button, and they won’t be able to access your server anymore
What to do if someone pulls your IP from Discord?
If someone pulls your IP using malicious links or using other ways, you can contact Discord and inform them everything.
Don’t panic, even if someone gets your IP, it’s not a big deal. Internet Service Providers (ISPs) provide a dynamic IP address that will change occasionally, and they are public IPs, it means you share your IP address with multiple people.
What are the ways to find someone’s IP Address?
Obtaining the IP address of a website or a device can be required for multiple reasons, and it’s legal if your intentions are good. Sometimes we also pull user IP addresses from the visit log to blacklist them for spamming on our site.
Using the Command Prompt (CMD)
You can find CMD by searching for it in the start menu if you are using Windows and in Mac, it’s called Terminal which can be found in the Utilities folder. Open the application and a DOS screen will pop-up.
- Type ‘ping‘ followed by either an IP Address or a Domain Name and hit Enter.
- It will start printing results immediately.
Using an Online IP Lookup Tool
Websites such as WhatIsMyIPAddress.com lets you check IP address information such as its continent, country, ISP (Internet Service Provider) e.t.c
For privacy protection, some people use VPN services to avoid tracing their actual IP; in that case, no website will help you get the real IP address of the user.
Is Discord safe from hackers?
Discord is a lot safer than it used to be, but you need to make sure you don’t click on links sent by unknown people, don’t share personal info with strangers, and be careful when you add a bot.
Below we have described why Discord is safe to use.
Discord has a client-server architecture, and your IP is secured and can’t be obtained using third-party tools.
Login-attempts from different IPs require verification through email, so if anyone tries to get into your account, they will not be able to access it.
Two Factor Authentication
Two-factor authentication (2FA) adds an extra layer of security, and it’s widely used by social media platforms. If you have enabled 2FA using Google authenticator or Authy, you’ll need an authentication code every time you log in to your account.
Discord has a mode for streamers that hides sensitive information such as your email and invite links. So if this feature is enabled, you can open OBS or XSplit without worrying about anything.
Q. Is Discord safe for kids?
A. It depends on how they use it, as mentioned before Discord is safe from hackers as long as you don’t click on malicious links or share sensitive information with strangers. It’s better to keep an eye on what they do on the platform.
Q. Is Discord OK for an 8-year-old?
A. No, the minimum age to join Discord is 13 as per Discord’s Terms of Service.
Q. How to monitor kids’ Discord?
A. You can use bark to set up parental controls. Bark can detect and alert parents about depression, threats, violence, and more.
