Key notes

  • BetterDiscord is not an official Discord app, and anything unofficial can lead to unavoidable circumstances.
  • You can uninstall it in the usual way from the Control Pane.
  • Else, you can reinstall the Discord app and be done with it.

Discord is a popular chatting platform that allows you to connect with your friends and family members. It started as a dedicated chatting and streaming platform for gamers. Well, since then, it has evolved and now has a bunch of modifications, such as BetterDiscord, to enhance its features list.

However, it is a third-party extension not approved by Discord as it does not follow Discord’s terms and agreements. So, if you use BetterDiscord, you will get banned from Discord. This guide will show you how to uninstall BetterDiscord from Discord. So, let us get right into it.

What is BetterDiscord and why it shouldn’t be used?

BetterDiscord has plenty of features that could lure any Discord user into using it. However, one must not use it to avoid getting banned from Discord since it is against Discord’s policy.

It won’t hurt if you get a peek at the features of the BetterDiscord extension:

  • It lets you customize the Discord client based on personal preferences.
  • It enables you to focus on specific channels.
  • It helps you download and customize plugins and themes.
  • It gives access to emojis and emoticons that aren’t available in Discord.
  • You can play music in the background using the rhythm bot.

But when you check the official website of BetterDiscord, it clearly explains that;

Yes. BetterDiscord violates Discord’s terms of service by modifying the client, although there is no evidence that discord either cares or takes actions against users who modify their client. Your account is not at risk for simply using BetterDiscord alone. Abusing the service or using plugins which further violate the Terms of Service can get your account terminated, however. All plugins from our official website are safe.

If you are a serious gamer or use Discord for essential purposes, you should avoid using unofficial extensions for the platform since that takes you one step closer or right at the door of getting banned from Discord.
