Discord is down, and affected users are seeing a “blocked” message

by Norman Scott

Discord, the popular instant messaging app, is currently facing an outage that has left many users unable to log into their accounts. Instead, they are receiving a “Sorry, you have been blocked” message. The issue seems to be connected to a Cloudflare outage and maintenance.

Numerous reports from users on platforms like Twitter and Reddit have been pouring in, highlighting the difficulties faced by those who have managed to log in. Accessing chats, message history, and sending and receiving messages are all affected. The outage appears to be widespread, potentially impacting users globally.

However, it should be noted that the mobile app for Discord seems to be functioning properly at the moment. The issue seems to mainly affect the web app and the desktop app.

Discord’s official status page acknowledges the error and mentions a similar issue that occurred a few hours ago, along with a fix that was rolled out. However, users continue to face difficulties accessing the service.

DownDetector, a website that tracks internet service outages, also indicates a significant increase in outage reports for Discord, suggesting that the issue is global in nature.

Interestingly, Discord’s official Twitter account has an outage alert from yesterday, but no fresh acknowledgment has been made regarding this current outage.

The outage appears to be related to Cloudflare, a web infrastructure company that provides services like DNS and DDoS protection. Cloudflare is currently experiencing issues with its Dashboard and API service and has ongoing maintenance at its data center in Doha.

As of now, there is no information available on how long the outage will last. Both Cloudflare and Discord have not provided any updates regarding the estimated resolution time. Users are advised to stay patient and keep an eye out for any official announcements.

In the meantime, some users have found solace in the fact that the mobile app is still accessible. However, for those who heavily rely on the web or desktop versions of Discord, this outage is undoubtedly causing inconvenience and frustration.

It is always frustrating when popular platforms like Discord face outages, disrupting the daily communication and activities of millions of users. Hopefully, Discord and Cloudflare will resolve the issue promptly and keep users informed about the progress in resolving this outage.
