Why go Invisible or Offline in discord 

Discord is a social platform for gamers and for many other purposes too where we get connected to people with the same interest and create servers for a chat.

There is a time when we want to perform many actions without other people knowing that we are online.

There can be many reasons for Discord invisible status such as

  • We want to work late at night and don’t want any interference
  • Preparing for raid
  • I wish to be idle for some time without logging out, this will help to lose important messages and call.
  • Don’t want family or friends interruption while working
  • Want to be online on Discord without anyone knowing.


Available status of Discord

Discord provides 4 different status which you can set while working on Discord.

You can set the status by clicking on the profile picture which is on the very left to your username.

  1. ONLINE:- Discord Online status indicates that you are connected to the internet and logged in to Discord. This helps other users to know that you are open to communication.

The online symbol appears as a green circle on your profile picture which is on the left to your username


  1. IDLE:- Idle status let other users know that you are not active on Discord or may be moved to AFK(away from keyboard). AFK is set by your server admin depending on the time frame set for moving to AFK.
