Discord is about hanging out with friends. Millions of people across the world come here to build community and discuss all sorts of topics, play both casual and competitive games, and sometimes even learn something new! It's a space where people can be themselves and spend time with others who share their interests and hobbies. We want everyone to experience the joy of Discord, find belonging, and build community. That’s why we’ve made safety a top priority.
In addition to building safety features that both parents and teens can use to customize their Discord experience, we regularly update our community guidelines to further efforts to protect our users, especially teens, and recently launched a new Safety Center containing more information and resources on building a safer Discord experience.
Everyone’s online safety needs and expectations are different, which is why we broadly invest in diverse sets of tools and resources to support our users. That’s why as a next step we’re excited to introduce the Family Center.
Discord's Family Center is a new opt-in tool that makes it easy for teens to keep their parents and guardians informed about their Discord activity while respecting their autonomy. Similar to how parents know who their teens are friends with and what clubs they’re a part of at school, Family Center helps them learn more about who their teens are friends with and talk to on Discord. Our goal with Family Center is to help foster productive dialogue about safer internet habits, and to create mutually beneficial ways for parents and teens to connect about experiences online.
