How do I permanently delete Discord DMS?

Answered by Stephen Mosley

To permanently delete Discord DMs, you can follow these steps:

1. Open Discord and navigate to the Direct Messages section by clicking on the speech bubble icon located on the left side of the screen.

2. Locate the DM conversation that you want to delete and click on it to open the chat.

3. Once you are in the DM conversation, press the Up arrow key on your keyboard to select your most recent message. This will activate the message editor.

4. Press the Up arrow key again to access your previous message. Now, you can delete the entire conversation by hovering over it to reveal the right-side hamburger menu icon. Click on the icon to open the menu options.

5. From the menu options, select “Delete” to initiate the deletion process.

6. A confirmation prompt will appear asking if you are sure you want to delete the conversation. Click on the “Delete” button to confirm and permanently delete the Discord DMs.

By following these steps, you will be able to delete your Discord DMs permanently. It is important to note that this action cannot be undone, so make sure you want to delete the conversation before proceeding.

Additionally, it’s worth mentioning that deleting Discord DMs only affects your side of the conversation. The other person involved will still have access to the messages unless they also delete them from their end.

Remember to exercise caution when deleting DMs, as once they are deleted, they cannot be recovered.
