Discord has improved the way to report spam accounts
In the last few years, Discord has increased a lot. More than 150 million active users per month started using this platform who use more than 19 million servers every week. Scammers realized this and moved to this space. The last report that Discord made public, details that in the first half of 2021 — a total increase of slightly over 80,000 from the previous six months.
Discord worked on this and implemented more facilities to report them. As they said in their last report: `The team worked to scale reactive operations and improve methods to proactively detect and remove abuse.´ The notable thing is Discord has banned nearly millions of accounts from spamming last year. In this article we´ll show you the best way to do a report in Discord with success.
