Using the server settings

Step 1: You’ll need to open the Discord server you created by selecting it within the app itself.

Step 5: Discord will require you to enter the name of your server.

Step 6: Select the Delete server button.

Although you can recover a deleted account on Discord, the platform does not provide the same option for deleting a server. Once you proceed with deleting your server, it will be permanently removed from Discord’s systems. As such, make sure you save anything that may be valuable within your server before you delete it.

How do I delete a Discord server without admin access?

If you don’t have admin control of a server (which you would if you created it or ownership was transferred to you), then you won’t be able to delete it.

However, if you feel the server itself is illegal, dangerous, contains spam, etc., you could report it to Discord, which will launch its own investigation and may decide to delete it.

You can do so via Discord’s official submit a request page, where you’ll be able to provide evidence via screenshots. You can also include a link to specific messages that are relevant in your report.

If you decide to delete your Discord account completely, check out our guide on how to do so.
