    Also an option to password protect DMs or the entire app even would be nice

    With the proper roles and permission set up, you should be able to customize your server beyond what a pw protected channel should be able to utilize.

    If you really are that serious about encryption, you probably shouldn't be using discord...

    Also note that while they reserve the right to look and police, they don't need to police. There is a report function and they can always install automatic filters to catch things not allowed. If something illegal is found, it would just be reported to discord and then they would remove it.

    Adding passwords can be used in events, and managing other users in the server. Changing roles is such a large work when you have fifty or more people to edit, besides if the channel is a single-use, you don't wanna change all the users roles back. I believe that adding in the password feature is a benefit to most of the Discord users.

    Possibly you could have a bot in a different channel and if you type an incorrect password it would say something like this Or possibly a pass-code system with a 4-digit code you  give to people.

    Bots are only temporary ugly fixes for problems like this.

    You can have a private channel which is remaining unseen as long as you don't give the proper permissions to the management

    I really don't see a point in this when you could just lock certain channels to specific roles

    I love password protected rooms.

     

    Roles are great to set up long term, permanent solutions to access restriction for communities with a full time moderation team. Password protected rooms are great because they allow easier access to new members that you want to give permissions to even if you can't be on hand to give them the role they need. Or in off hours situations where someone needs access to a channel but they can't get into it, any member of that channel can help them access it instead of a few key people.

     

    Ideally putting in the password would add the role, much like the password bots do. And changing the password would remove the role from everyone.

     

    It's a simple thing, but a nice quality of life improvement. There isn't any good reason to not make it a feature, they just don't need to because there are bots out there that handle it already. And they have their minds on ways to make more money not improve QOL in such minor ways.

    I want this feature because I would love to have the ability for lower-level roles to be able to keep the highest level roles out of a locked room.  Like only Person A and Person B can enter a room, while even though Person C has a higher-level-role, they'd have to plug in a 4 digit password to view the channel
