Discord is a popular gaming chat app that allows users to connect with each other. Once you download Discord, you get access to a ton of features, including the ability to send messages to people on your server as well as video calls with other members.

It is not uncommon for Discord to have issues such as failed installation but accounts can also get disabled by the company as well. 

If your account gets disabled for some reason (and this can happen for many reasons), you won’t be able to log in or use any of the features.

The good news is that getting your disabled Discord account back is pretty easy provided you were not involved in any violations as per the Terms and Conditions.

Is Discord disabled permanently?

A disabled account is an account that has been temporarily banned by the Discord staff. This means that you will not be able to log into your account for a period of time. The length of time will vary depending on the severity of the action.

So, how long is an account disabled on Discord? Accounts that are temporarily suspended may be reactivated if you agree to comply with Community Guidelines after a two-week period. 

When you disable a Discord account, it is still visible in the Discord web client but is not active on any server. Disabled accounts can also not receive any messages or calls.

How can you recover a disabled Discord account? 

1. Check the FAQ section 

If you believe your Discord account was disabled for no reason, check the FAQ section and see whether there is a clause that addresses your problem.

Some of the common reasons why your account may be disabled abruptly include:

  • Discord account disabled for age – Discord requires that all users on the platform be at least 18 years of age.
  • Account disabled for invalid or no email – If your Discord account is not linked to an email or an invalid email, it may be disabled.

If you don’t meet the minimum age requirements, your account will be disabled. Sometimes it is due to a simple glitch. Ensure you check for any answers before making official communication.

2. Email Discord 

If your Discord account was disabled for suspicious activity, you will need to write to Discord official email explaining in detail what happened and wait for the verdict.

Attach as much evidence as possible for review. Your account may be restored with a stern warning or suspended for a few days then restored.

3. Send a Direct Message on Twitter 

You can check out Discord’s official Twitter account and reach out to them via tweet or direct message. In this case, you will have to provide all details and reasons you suspect your account is disabled.

Always ensure to check for the official verification mark as there are a lot of accounts pretending to be Discord fishing for your personal details. If everything checks out, your account will be restored.

4. Message Discord on Facebook 

If Twitter is not your preferred channel, you can also message Discord on Facebook to restore your disabled account.

Remember to include all relevant details such as your associated Discord email, username, and any other open tickets regarding the issue.

5. Message Discord on Instagram 

Discord is also on Instagram and you can also submit your request for account restoration on the platform. The steps are similar to Facebook and Twitter for you to recover your account.

You may get a reply asking you to submit your ticket number, fill in a form or write an email so ensure you have all the details at hand.

6. Submit an appeal form 

For a more detailed approach, you can submit an appeal form. This is usually after your Discord account is disabled for spamming.

Head over to their Submit appeal form page and fill in the form. You will then receive a ticket ID that you should keep close. When the team responds, you will be asked for the ID and hopefully, your account will be restored.

7. Send a message on Reddit

Discord is also quite active on Reddit with several moderators so your issue is likely to get addressed in a timely fashion on this platform.

Message them with the relevant details and a moderator will get back to you as soon as possible. The good thing about the moderators s that they can also give you tips on other issues you may have with your account.

Is a disabled Discord account banned? 

Disabling your account is different from being banned. When you disable your account, it stays the same until you restore it. However, if you are banned, all information will be removed from the servers.

So. what does a disabled Discord account look like? A disabled account is one that is temporarily suspended. This means that you cannot access the account, but it will be restored after a certain period of time. 

On the other hand, a banned Discord account is one that has been permanently deleted from Discord for a violation of the Terms of Service. 

If you believe your account has been disabled erroneously, you need to know how to appeal. You can contact the support team through email or the Developer support center. You can also contact them via their official Twitter page.

If none of these work, you can submit a Discord account disabled appeal form. You will need to write a short explanation about why you believe your account should be re-enabled.

There is no guarantee that they will be able to reinstate your account. This process can take up to 48 hours before any action is taken on the appeal request.

Like any platform, always make sure to read the Terms of Service to ensure you do not violate any that could result in disabling or permanent ban of your account.
