Discord has grown to be one of the most popular audio-centric social media platforms of the modern age especially since the start of the pandemic. The service recently introduced the ability to host audio-centric events on community servers in an attempt to compete with Twitter Spaces and Clubhouse. Discord has numerous tricks and tips that you can use to your advantage. One of these is using a blank name on any server which helps hide your identity from all members. If you have been looking to get an invisible name on Discord then simply follow the guide below to get started.
What does invisible status mean on Discord?
Invisible is a status on Discord that helps you appear offline to others. It helps avoid unwanted contact when you are just visiting or browsing a server and do not wish to be disturbed. While the dedicated DND status helps others know that you are online and do not wish to be disturbed, setting your status to ‘Invisible’ shows your current status as ‘Offline’.
What does invisible name mean on Discord?
Invisible on Discord refers to an invisible name, where your username is essentially missing from your profile. Your avatar and chosen profile picture will still be visible to your communities but they will see a blank space where your username should be. Being invisible has its own advantages and disadvantages but it is mainly used as a perk by community members and lurkers to stay invisible while scouring servers.

What is an invisible character?
There is no invisible character per se, but Unicode characters and other characters that can not be displayed by Discord. This helps circumvent Discord’s character requirement for the username which allows you to appear invisible online. You will have an invisible name in private and community servers. The change will also apply to audio chats and member lists.
Risks of using an invisible name
Discord does not have rules against an invisible name on the platform so you are not at the risk of getting your entire account banned. However, most community servers tend to have rules against such practices to ensure proper accountability in the future in case something goes wrong. Hence there is a slight risk of violating certain community rules and getting yourself banned from specific servers that you are subscribed to. We recommend going through your community guidelines before making this change. Additionally, you can also get in touch with community moderators to notify them of the change to further reduce the risk of getting banned from a Discord server.
What does idle status mean on Discord?
As Discord automatically changes your status based on your activity, ‘Idle’ is used when you haven’t visited Discord in a while but have it open on your desktop or your browser window. You can also change your status to ‘Idle’ manually to let others know that you are currently away from Discord.
