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 personal identifiable information, or PII, of another person without their permission and with the intention to cause harm. A dox is the collection of personal information of another person.
