This is pretty cool because it means you can delete messages from your private chats anytime you want. But, guess what? Some folks aren’t sure how to get rid of these direct messages (DMs) or how to do it all at once.
Here’s the thing, there are a few different ways to delete messages on Discord. And it’s usually a breeze if you’re using a computer. But what if you’re out and about without your PC? Don’t worry, I’ve got some tips and tricks for you. Keep reading to find out how you can keep your Discord chats neat and tidy, no matter where you are! 🌟📱
Delete Discord DMs From a Mobile Device
How To Delete Discord DMs Script
Alright, let’s dive into something a bit more techy – using scripts to delete your Discord DMs on a PC. Think of scripts like a recipe that tells your computer exactly what to do. You can actually use these scripts to clear out your DMs on Discord. But, and this is a big but, using scripts can be a bit risky because it might go against Discord’s rules. So, let’s be careful, okay?
Step-by-Step: Using AutoHotKey
- Download AutoHotKey. It’s a program that lets you create scripts.
- Keep AutoHotKey running. Just open it and leave it be.
- Find the Discord.ahk file. You can get it from this page. Download it to your computer.
- Run the Discord.ahk file. Just double-click on it.
- Click “Okay” when you see a message saying, “This Script Is Active!”
- Open Discord. You can use the app or the browser version.
- Go to your DMs. Find the messages you want to delete.
- Select a message and press “Delete.”
Remember, Discord only loads messages when they appear on your screen. So, you’ll need to scroll through your DMs to get the script to work on all the messages you want to delete. Think of this script as a supercharged version of the hotkeys method. It does the button pressing for you!
Trying Out Undiscord
Now, there’s another script method called Undiscord. It’s a bit trickier to set up, but here’s how:
- Install Violentmonkey or Tampermonkey. These are extensions for your browser.
- Download and install Undiscord.
- Open Discord in your browser.
- Look for a trash can icon at the top-right corner and click on it.
- Click on “Get” and then “Start” to begin the deletion process.
A couple of things to note: Unfortunately, Undiscord doesn’t work on Macs anymore. Also, it only functions in the browser version of Discord, not the standalone app.
So, there you have it! Two ways to use scripts to clean up your Discord DMs. Just remember to use these methods responsibly and be aware of Discord’s rules. Happy organizing! 🌐🗑️💬
How To Delete Discord DM History With Bots
Let’s talk about a hot topic in the world of Discord: using bots to delete your DM history. It’s important to know the dos and don’ts here, especially if you want to keep things on the up-and-up with Discord’s rules.
Here’s the deal: Discord doesn’t let you delete your DMs using bots. And trying to do this is actually a no-go according to Discord’s Terms of Service. So, if you’re thinking about using a bot to clear out your DM history, you might want to reconsider.
Now, here’s where it gets interesting. If you’re a moderator of a channel or server, some bots can actually help you delete messages there. Each bot is like a unique character with its own set of skills, or in this case, commands.
Finding the Right Command
- Check the help function. Many bots have a ‘help’ command that will show you what they can do.
- Visit the bot’s download page. This is usually where you’ll find a list of all the commands the bot understands.
One thing to remember is that bots can’t just delete the messages you sent to them. Why? Well, it’s all about keeping your messages safe and sound. This security feature makes sure no one can mess with your messages using a bot.
In a nutshell, while you can’t use bots to delete your private DMs on Discord, they can be super helpful for managing messages in channels or servers if you’re in charge. Just remember to play by the rules and use the right commands for the job. Happy Discord managing! 🤖💬🚫

But remember, some of these methods might be skating on thin ice when it comes to Discord’s rules. And yep, there’s a chance of getting banned, although it doesn’t happen too often.
Now, I’m super curious about what you think:
- What would you like to see improved in Discord? Especially when it comes to deleting messages. Got any cool ideas?
- Which method do you prefer? Are you a manual message deleter, a script user, or do you have another trick up your sleeve?
