Three Steps to a Safer Server
One of our core philosophies is to empower you with the ability to stay safe on Discord at the level of your choosing. For those looking to amp up their accounts safety and security, here’s a quick guide on what to do.
Go to Server Settings -> Moderation for all the following options.
Step 1: Set a Verification Level
Server verification levels allow you to set a minimum threshold for who can interact in your server. We recommend (╯°□°）╯︵ ┻━┻ for the highest safety level.
By making people wait ten minutes, they'll have time to read the rules and existing conversation in the chat before joining in, leading to higher quality chat overall. It also helps prevent possible spam attempts.
Step 2: Set your Explicit Content Filter
Turning on Explicit Content Filtering will automatically detect and delete images and uploads deemed inappropriate. You can find this option in Server Settings -> Moderation.
This allows people to share content like images and embeds while lowering the risk of sensitive material shown in SFW (Safe For Work) channels. More clean fun!
Step 3: Server-wide 2FA
When enabled, Server-wide 2FA requires all of your admins to have 2FA enabled on their account in order to use administrative features. Read more about 2FA here.
By requiring all admin accounts to have 2FA turned on, you protect your server from malicious folks who happen to compromise one of your admin accounts, then performing unwanted moderative actions. The server 2FA button is at the bottom of the Server Settings > Moderation tab.
