Discord is a really fun place to hang out if you have a good online community. You can listen to songs together, send messages, videos, etc.


However, there are certain messages, images, and videos that you do not want others to see. If that is the case, you can use Spoiler Tags on Discord to hide some part of a message or an entire message, images, and videos. 

In this article, I am going to show you how to use Spoiler Tags on Discord to hide messages, images, and videos.

Using Spoiler Tags on Discord 

For Text Message

The easiest way to mark a message as a spoiler is by selecting the text that you want to hide. 

Once you select the text, you will see the formatting options, just click/tap on the eye icon.

Alternatively, you can also type a spoiler message manually. Just use “/spoiler” before the message to hide it. 

For example, I can use “/spoiler this is a message” and if I send this message on Discord, it will be hidden and the users will only be able to see it if they decide to open the message.

For example, I can type “||this is a message||” and it will hide the message for other recipients.
