Discord suffered instability this Friday morning (29), which lasted around two hours in Brazil. When trying to access the tool, especially in the Chrome browser, the user was informed that their access was blocked and it was not possible to view the pages.
The program was more stable on smartphones and the Firefox browser.
In Brazil, the DownDetector website, which monitors user complaints almost in real time, started to register an increase in complaints from 8:14 am, with the peak occurring at 9:44 am, with 1,348.
In the USA, the growth in complaints began at 6:49 am, with 4,132. The peak was at 9:49 am, with 8,995, keeping the average between 4,000 and 5,000 in this interval.
Discord reported, at 8:45 am, on its official account on X, formerly Twitter, that it was working to fix the problem. “We are aware of an issue preventing users from accessing the app. Our team is investigating the issue.”
At 10:12 am, in a new post, Discord announced that there was “unusual traffic” on the platform, which led to some users being blocked. In the Chrome browser, access returned to normal around 10:15 am and complaints began to decrease in Brazil.
On social media, internet users posted several memes about the situation. See some of them below
