When people break these rules by doing things like harassment, hate speech, or spamming, it is the job of server managers to keep the community's integrity.  You can ban someone on Discord in two ways. One is the usual way to use the choices that Discord gives you, and the other is with the help of bots. The steps are easy to understand. Also read - How To Get Discord On PS5

Ban Someone On Discord via Desktop

The steps are the same for both the web version of Discord and the Windows or Mac desktop app. But for the example, we'll use Mac. 
  • On your Windows or Mac, open the Discord app. Go to the server where you are the owner. 
  • Right-click on the person you want to ban in the right pane.
  • Select "Ban [username]" from the list of options.

Ban Someone On Discord via Discord Mobile App

Both Android and iOS follow the same steps. We'll use an Android phone for the test. You can follow along if you have iOS.
  • Open the Discord app and go to the group where you want to ban a user.
  • Tap the person icon in the server's upper right corner. Tap on the person you want to ban on the next screen.

  • Once the bot has banned a user, it will send a message to that effect.
So there it is. With just one line of code, you have told a person that they can no longer use your server. If you don't want to ban a person but do want to get rid of them from your server, keep reading.

How To Unban Someone On Discord

You can only unban a user on Discord if you are a server administrator or owner, just like you can only ban a user. Let's start with what you need to do on a PC to unban someone.

On Desktop

  • On your Windows or Mac machine, open the Discord app. Go to the server where you are the owner. 
  • Click the button icon next to the name of the server.
  • Choose Server Settings from the drop-down options.

  • On the right, you will see a list of banner members. Find the person you want to unban and click on his or her name.
