We believe a safer internet is an internet where more people can find belonging. For Discord, safety is a common good. We want to make not just our platform, but the rest of the internet, a better and safer place.
Here at Discord, we recognize our responsibility in creating a safer internet but we can't do it alone. That’s why this year we’ve partnered with local online safety advocacy organizations like NoFiltr to create education content to help users stay safe on Discord and the internet as a whole and develop healthy digital habits in celebration of Safer Internet Day.

Everyone’s got a role to play in helping make your online communities a safe and inclusive space— wanna find out yours?
For this year’s Safer Internet Day, Discord and NoFiltr, with help from the Youth Innovation Council, are launching the “What’s Your Online Digital Role?” quiz. We believe that everyone can play a part in helping make online communities a safe and inclusive space, and this interactive quiz can help you figure out what role best suits you when it comes to being a part of and building a safe community. Take the quiz here to find out.
We’re committed now more than ever to helping spread the message of Safer Internet Day. In continuing our mission of making your online home a safer one, Discord is partnering with Childnet UK and Internet Sans Crainte, two European Safer Internet Centers dedicated to increasing awareness and education about better online safety practices for youth.
In addition, we’ll be hosting a round table event in Brussels where policymakers, civil society thought leaders, and industry partners will come together to share insights, discuss challenges, and discuss steps we can take together to make Discord and the internet a safer place for young people.
