Nobody likes it when they’re banned, and a Discord server is no exception to that rule. It’s even more frustrating when there is no reason given for the ban. Sometimes you know what you did, but sometimes you honestly have no clue.
One of the most common reasons for getting banned on a Discord server is for violating the Discord Terms of Service (ToS). Bans can be short-term or permanent, fair or unfair — it’s really entirely in the hands of the person administering the server that you were banned from, and there’s nothing to be done about it.
Or is there? Let’s take a look at how you can bypass a ban in Discord.
Before we get into the details of how you can get around a ban, let’s address the elephant in the room: does getting around a ban constitute a violation of Discord’s Terms of Service?
A ban from an individual server could just be a dispute between you and one admin. In these situations, you can still join any other server. If you really want to be a part of that server you can create a new profile. However, violating the Discord ToS is more serious and can result in permanent bans.
Evading a ban does not, in and of itself, constitute a violation of the Terms of Service. However, depending on the reason you are evading the ban, and more importantly, your behavior AFTER you evade the ban, you could be putting yourself in the position of violating the ToS. Here’s how. There is a specific, and explicit, statement within the Discord community guidelines:
So, if you have been banned from a server for harassing people on the server, and you evade the ban to go right back and harass those people again, then you are putting yourself in the line of fire. Keep this in mind when implementing the suggestions listed below.
There are two common ways to evade a ban in Discord. First, you can use a VPN. Or, you can use a mobile device to trick the server.
We’ll take a look at both methods below, and you can choose whichever one best suits your needs.
One of the best tools for overcoming any ban is a VPN. This Virtual Private Network masks your IP Address and your Location. When you receive a ban on Discord, the company takes note of your device and denies access. It is for this reason that we’ll show you how to use a VPN to bypass a ban first.
There are a lot of VPNs available today, but for this article, we’ll use ExpressVPN.
You can use a VPN to bypass a ban on both Mac and PC computers.
On a PC:
If you’re using a PC, you’ll first need to remove all of your Discord data from the machine. It may look complicated, but don’t worry, just follow these simple steps:
Once you’ve deleted the Discord folder, it’s time to get up and running again.
On a Mac
Mac users can follow these instructions. Just like the instructions for PC users, you’ll first need to delete the Discord data on your Mac.
Now, you can activate ExpressVPN and get back to chatting on Discord. Here’s how:
Fortunately, you aren’t bound to using a computer to bypass a Discord ban. You can use your smartphone too. The instructions are pretty much the same for iOS and Android users.
First, you’ll want to uninstall the application from your phone. This will remove any app data stored on your phone that Discord may detect when we sign back in again. Upon deleting the app, activate your VPN.
Now, reinstall Discord and create a new account. As long as your VPN is actively masking your IP Address, you’ll have no problems bypassing Discord’s ban.
If you have yet to sign up for a VPN, you can use the following method to bypass a Discord ban.
When you are banned from a server while using the desktop Discord client, the account identifier you were logged in with and your unique IP address are what the Discord server uses to identify you as the target of a ban.
As such, you can’t just create a new account from the same machine — the IP address is still flagged, meaning the server will still be able to identify you.
However, if you have a mobile device with a data plan, then you can use this to trick the server and get around the ban.
As you can see, bypassing a Discord ban is fairly easy. By using either a mobile device or a VPN, you can create a new account and bypass Discord’s IP detection to rejoin the server you were banned from.

All this boils down to is basic human decency and common sense, which is fairly simply to achieve.
this seems totally unnecessary.
when i get banned i just move on, ots over im done
its still helpful so props to you man.
have a blessed day/afternoon/night!♥
Thanks for enabling stalkers! 😀
If everyone keeps doing this then there’ll be little to no IP address to be permanently banned as IP address are non renewable.
I turned off my WiFi
And made a new account.
And it worked. I was IP banned, but I still got in!
Whoever wrote this is a genius.
