Discord is an app that many people use to communicate with their friends as they are playing a game. Game creators also use Discord as a social media platform to keep users updated about what’s going on with their game. However, there are some users that don’t have the best intentions while using this app. There are many people that use this app to cheat on their partners and receive explicit content from other people. There are also children who use this app that may be looking at inappropriate content without their parents realizing it. This is why it’s important to know how to perform a Discord search.
How to Perform a Discord Search
Method #1: Using the Discord Search Bar
If you’re already friends with a particular user or know what groups they have joined, then you can use the search bar! Simply type in the name of the group that the person is in or their username to find out if their Discord is still active. You can do this by hitting the search icon or the search bar on your mobile device. If you’re on your computer, there should be a search bar in the top left corner.
Method #2: Adding Them As a Friend
On your mobile device or computer, click on the “Add Friend” button. Then, enter the username of the person you would like to find followed by the code associated with their username. For this method, you need to look at your friend’s Discord in order to get the code.
Method #3: Using Filters
If you want to view messages from someone on your account or on someone else’s account, you can use filters to find what you need easier.
Types of Filters
From: Type in “From:” and then type the username of the messages you want to look at.
Has: Type in “Has:” and then select from the list of options that appear. You can choose from these: link, embed, file, video, image, or sound.
In: Type in “In:” and then select which channel you want to look through. If you can’t find the channel you want from the drop-down menu, type in a “#” and then the channel. Ex: “#socialcatfish” if Social Catfish had a Discord channel.
Before, During, or After: Type in either “before:”, “during:” or “after:” then the date in the drop-down calendar, depending on if you want to look before, during, or after that date.
Method #4: Using Reverse Search Methods with Social Catfish
At Social Catfish, we want to help you verify the identities of those who might seem suspicious to you.
