Hiding Channels From Server Members

If you want a voice or text channel that’s specifically just for you, your friends, or admins/mods, it’s essential that you make it hidden. This way, no one will be able to see that you’re in a voice channel, chatting, or active.

Here’s how you can do that:

  1. Create a new voice/text channel (or use an existing one).
  2. Hover over the voice/text channel and click the small cogwheel to edit it.
  3. Here, select the Permissions tab.
  4. Now expand Advanced Permissions, select the appropriate role or everyone and press the red X button next to the View Channel setting.
  5. Hit Save Changes, and you’re done. The channel will be hidden from the selected role.

Alternatively, do this:

  1. Enable the Private Channel option and click on Add members or roles.
  2. Use the search bar to find the right member or role, click Done, and Save Changes.

This solution applies to everyone, not just server owners, admins, or mods. If there is a specific text or voice channel you don’t want to see, this is a way to hide them.

Here’s how you can do that:

  1. Start Discord and enter a server.
  2. In the server, right-click the voice or text channel you want to hide.
  3. Select Mute Channel -> Until I turn it back on
  4. Now click on the server name on the top-left of the Discord window and select Hide muted channels.Muted Channels

From now on, the channel will be hidden for you until you unmute it or disable this option.
