How to Make a Discord Channel Private on a PC or Mac

This eMinds CA teaches you some members how to restrict a discord channel when you are using a computer.

Open Discord. Click on the Discord app in the Windows Menu (PC) or Application Folder (Mac), sign in if you are not already.

You can also access Discord in your browser. Visit, click Login at the top-right corner of the screen, then enter your account information to sign in.

You must have a server administrator or have appropriate permissions to make the channel private.

Click on a server. The server icons are listed on the left side of the screen. This will open the list of channels on that server.

Rotate your mouse over the channel you want to make private. Two small icons will appear.

Click the gear icon. It’s to the right of the channel’s name.

Click Permissions.

Click @everyone to select it. If it was already selected, you can skip this step.

Click the red X next to everything in the right panel.

Click Save Changes. This is a green button on the lower-right corner of the disk. Now that you have removed all permissions from the channel, you will need to manually add users back.

Click the “+” next to the “Roles/Members” header. This opens a list of server members.

Click the member to add them to the channel.

Set permissions for selected members. Click on the green check mark next to each permission option. The following permissions are recommended so that users can chat with each other:

Read messages

Send messages

Attach files (optional)

Add reactions (optional)

Click Save Changes. You have now added a member back to the private channel with normal permissions. You will need to repeat this procedure with each additional member you want to add. None of the people you added will be able to use this channel.
