Doxxing Policy Explainer


At Discord, we take a firm stance against doxxing. We do not tolerate anyone putting somebody in danger by leaving them vulnerable to data breaches, targeted harassment, and real-world threats such as physical harm. Doxxing is when someone shares the Personally Identifiable Information, or PII, of another person without their permission and with the intention to cause harm. A dox is the collection of the Personally Identifiable Information of another person.

Personally Identifiable Information (PII) includes any information that could be used to identify an individual, such as a name, home address, social security number, banking information, driver's license number, and any other sensitive data.

For example, you may not post, share, or engage in:

How to Avoid Violating This Policy

Please leave servers dedicated to any of the violative content described above. Discord may also take action against accounts that are present in violative servers.
