Discord blocks all iOS users from NSFW servers. NSFW (Not Safe For Work) can be specified in any document, video or photo. It contains +18 content with a document, video, or image with the NSFW tag. This tag on Discord servers can be placed on channels within the server. The NSFW tag warns users about this content. This update to Discord directly affects iOS users.
Discord brings NSFW tag to servers
Discord has previously used the NSFW tag in channels. With the new update, the NSFW tag will be available on the entire server. If the entire server hosts NSFW content and the server theme is on top of it, the server will automatically receive this tag. If there are multiple channels with NSFW tags on the server, that server will not receive a NSFW tag. All users on the iOS platform (including those over 18) will be prevented from joining and accessing servers with the NSFW tag. iOS users over 18 can join servers with the NSFW tag on the web and desktop versions of Discord using the same accounts.
Account holders will have to prove it via Discord’s Trust and Safety Panel if they mistakenly or recklessly chose an age in the 13-17 range. To prove your age, you must first submit a photo ID. You will need to take a photo of your ID and username on paper together and send it to the Trust & Safety team via this link. If you believe that your server has been NSFW tagged for no reason, you should also report this to the Trust & Safety team.
The main reason Discord blocks all iOS users from NSFW servers is likely due to Apple’s implementation policies. Apple does not want NSFW content produced by users within or apps that contain NSFW content. If this rule is violated, Apple has the right to uninstall the app via App Store without notifying the developer.
