Discord is a cool platform developed to allow gamers to communicate while playing their games. You can manage your messages, add members to your server and even create roles within your server.
But what is so helpful about this tool is that it allows you to access its proxy setting. This unique capability allows you to track the IP addresses of different users on Discord.
There are many reasons to find someone's IP address. Read on to find out how to get someone’s IP from discord.
Can I Get Someone's IP Directly on Discord?
No. You can't get someone else's IP address by looking at their Discord user profile. You will need to use a third-party app to see someone's IP address. A VPN will hide your real IP address from other users on Discord and allow you to keep your online activity private.

How to protect your IP from being accessed on Discord
1. Using VPN
The technology will hide your real IP address and replace it with one from a different location. As a result, hackers cannot access your personal information.
A VPN protects against several things:
- Your location being discovered by anyone who uses your IP address to access the internet
- Your credit card information being stolen or used without authorization when shopping online
- Hackers are getting into your accounts and stealing personal information like passwords
- Hackers accessing any private pictures or videos stored on your computer (or other devices connected to Wi-Fi)
2. Do Not Click Any Suspicious Links
If you receive an invitation to join a server or channel that seems dubious, it's best not to click the link. While it might tempt to see what shenanigans they're up to, these links could be phishing scams explicitly designed for Discord users.
What Makes Discord Very Safe?
1: Email Verification
Every time you create an account, you will be sent a verification email containing a verification link that needs to be clicked before logging into your account. It prevents people from creating fake accounts.
2: Two-Factor Authentication
If you want to take your account security, you can enable two-factor authentication (2FA), which will require you to enter a unique code whenever you log in from a new location or device. It prevents hackers from accessing your account if they gain access to your password.
3: Streamer Mode
A mode hides your personal information while streaming video games so that nothing shows up on your stream except the game itself. It includes personal information, like your IP address, email address, etc.
Q. Is IP Grabbing Illegal?
This depends on what you do with the information you get. If you intend to use someone's IP address to send them a virus or hack into their network, this is illegal and should be avoided. However, if you need to know where the user is connecting, you can use their IP address for geolocation.
Q. Does Discord leak your IP address?
No, Discord does not leak your IP address anywhere but to the server you're connected to. If a server has access to your IP, they can't share it with other servers or users without your permission.
It is easy to get someone’s IP address in Discord; it’s also beneficial. If you see someone threatening others with DDoS attacks or spamming their server, get their IP and report it to Discord staff.
