We Take You Through The Simple Steps Required To Unban People From Your Discord Server

WePC Unban on Discord 01

Banning people from your Discord server can sometimes be an unfortunate necessity in order to create a welcoming environment for the rest of your server membership, to remove griefers, or simply people you don’t like!

However, sometimes mercy is called for, and if an individual has shown contrition and you believe they have mended their ways, or simply if you were too fast and loose with your banhammer and accidentally banned the wrong person, you can always unban them afterwards.

Various admin bots or moderation bots can unban people in a more efficient way for larger servers, such as Carl bot or Mee6, however in the below steps we will just be showing you the basic way to unban users from Discord without the use of a bot.

Note: The below guide assumes you are either the server owner or have role permissions on your account to ban/unban people in the Discord server the person was originally banned from.


Select The Discord Server The Person Has Been Banned From

After you have launched Discord, select the server that you wish to unban the person from, which should be listed on the left hand side of your Discord window. A downward pointing arrow should be visible next to the server name at the top of the screen, click it and a dropdown menu should appear.


Click On “Server Settings”

Select the former member you wish to unban from the list of unbanned people. If the list is long then you can always search through it by typing the person’s Discord name into the search bar at the top (there was only one person in the list above so this was not necessary in our case).


Revoke The Ban

After you select the person you will get a pop up reminding you for the stated reason the individual was banned in the first place. Click Revoke to remove the ban.

Note: Even once you have unbanned someone from your Discord server, they usually do not automatically rejoin the Discord server as a member. You will need to re-invite the person to your server and they will have to decide whether to rejoin of their own volition.


So there we are ladies and gentlemen, now you can ban and unban people on Discord to your heart’s content.
