How does DM work on Discord?

A message that is sent directly from the sender to the recipient and is not connected to any server is known as a direct message, abbreviated as a DM (short for direct message) or a private message, also abbreviated as a PM. Direct messages (DMs) are messages that are sent over an exclusive channel that can only be accessed by the sender and the recipient of the message.

Are Discord DMS safe?

Even if no one is monitoring your private streams, you still shouldn’t consider Discord to be a secure avenue of communication. Your private communications are not encrypted end-to-end, and data breaches are a risk on any online platform (Discord has a bounty out on vulnerabilities; this link will open in a new tab).

Why can’t I send messages in Discord?

The following are some of the possible explanations for this: You are not going to be using the same server as the recipient. You have removed the ability to send direct messages on the shared server you are using. You are not a fully qualified member of your shared server since you have not finished the required membership screening processes.

What does pm mean in Discord?

private message
A private message, also known as a personal message or PM, is a message that is only sent between you and another user while you are chatting online. Note. In places like Discord, Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook, the term “direct message” (DM) is used in place of “private message,” despite the fact that both terms signify the same thing.

Does Discord record you?

To the best of our knowledge, calls made on Discord are not recorded. Since Discord uses end-to-end encryption, it is theoretically possible for a nation state to record its users’ conversations, but why would they want to? On Discord, people spend a combined total of millions of hours per year chatting with one another. Even if someone were to have the desire to record those calls, the storage requirements would be extremely high.
