    At least let it be toggled or removed entirely. My privacy's more at risk if my phone activity's getting monitored through the app.

    Well, you're assuming everyone is using discord for Gaming or general chat. But some of us are in local community groups and/or use it for work with our employers. There are a lot of instances where people might know you and your location in real life.

    There should be an option to disable it, similar to how you can on the PSN under privacy settings

    +1 Completely agree with this, feel like it should be optional at least

    This is just ridiculous. A toggle would be nice.

    Poor implementation is what Discord does. Mobile status indicators that violate your privacy, obnoxious buttons trying to sell you something no matter where you go, GIF features that massively increase the number of ways to circumvent disabled file upload settings, the list goes on... it's like they don't even take 5 minutes to think. Watch them release spoiler tags without the option to disable them permanently, forcing server mods to click the window every ten seconds while they're trying to play a game. It's going to happen.

    Just make an ''enable'' or ''disable'' button for it. That would be really nice. I dont want this phone icon to be shown

    It is shocking that there was no op-out put in as soon as this feature was implemented. I updated my Discord today, first saw someone 'on mobile', and immediately wondered how I could turn this off. No one needs to know which device I am using.

    I don't see the point of the mobile icon's existence other than Discord flexing their tech skills. Remove or opt out.

    I agree with you.

    Regarding TeamSpeak, there's a *major* difference between Discord and TeamSpeak there:

    With TeamSpeak, you sign into a specific server. Don't want a given server to see you on mobile? Don't sign into that server from mobile.

    With Discord, you sign into all of your servers at the same time. Sign into Discord at all and your status is identical across all of the servers you've joined. Even if you just need to communicate with people in a single server in your list, or a single friend even.

    Allowing for server-specific statuses or "invisible to non-friends" could help there, of course.

    It honestly baffles me that we have to suggest to the devs that they reconsider forcibly divulging completely unnecessary and potentially sensitive information about us to other users without any choice on our part. There is no legitimate reason for implementing it this way; on the contrary, there is every reason to allow us to choose with whom to share such information and, more importantly, whether or not to share it at all.

    The choice to implement this "feature" as is shows an enormous disregard for our privacy and our ability to control our own information. We've lost so much of that already in the internet age. What we have left should be respected more, not less.

    ETA: An earlier comment reminded me that there have been actual instances of Discord users who have been arrested by police for attempting to lure teenagers to have underage sex. While the blame for what those users did clearly lies on them, it strikes me as a particularly poor decision to force us to reveal information that hints at our location with complete strangers on a platform with a documented history of stalkers and harassers.

    As many others have said, it's just beyond me that a toggle for this wasn't introduced when the 'feature' was released. It allows people to know that you're not home and can evade your privacy. Just add this already, doing the opposite won't be good for Discord.

    This mobile status thing is garbage. The only way to stop it from showing you are on your phone is invisible status, and then posts made will show you as coming offline so obv on phone at that point because why else. I don't want certain obsessive people stalking me and knowing whenever I leave the house, and being unable to post on discord when I am due to having to be set invisible.

    Yep, really an oopsie this time. I use discord to do even business-relation and work conversations, this is how much I trust discord as a tool, I'm a game developer and I think discord should be a standard, I sell it to all I can. This new feature is just a downer, it backfires my word for suggesting discord to replace Skype.

    Don't get me wrong, not gonna to cry over it, neither will discord for me, but I am gonna stop using it if this doesn't change soon, anyone who has "serious" conversations on discord, which they used to do on Skype, will need to turn this feature off, even if it means getting out of the platform. I'm pretty sure that are a lot of users who also feel that way.

    I definitely still want this toggle. It's been FIVE months and I am tired of being invisible.

    I agree with everything said. I think it'd be great if you could have a few options - having it on, having it on ONLY to friends and having it completely off so nobody sees what device you're on. Alternatively perhaps we could have the choice to set it to whatever type of device we want, though I'd prefer the former over the latter. Thank you.

    How is this still not a toggle? Several of my friends have just moved to being permanently invisible because they're not comfortable with discord showing they're on their phone and not on a computer.

    I think there will be an option to disable it. DND overrides it regardless.

    Putting your status on Do Not Disturb is just a workaround, not a proper solution to this privacy issue.

    Yep. Still waiting on invisible. At this point it's basically confirmed to be a lost cause for security and I'm wondering if anybody can make an app to replicate Discord so that it's the same but just doesn't send a mobile indicator.

  • At least Skype didn't do this bullshit LOL. 

    I'm just not going to do Nitro again until this is implemented. Or something to its effect.

    Almost my 1 year anniversary of being invisible! I would love to come online very much!

  • Quickk

    Yeah I think there should be an option to hide it, not completely remove it from discord

    Still annoyed about this. I've been invisible on Discord for three months and it's deterring people from contacting me. Being on DND has the same effect.

    I noticed that the mobile indicator only works in "Online" status. "Idle", "Do not disturb" and "Invisible" don't show it. So the mobile indicator doesn't even make much sense. But I still think that opting out is a basic privacy right if someone wants to see if I am at home or mobile it should be my decision if they should get that information or not.

    The Do Not Disturb status will also block the indicator. It's certainly not a solution, but it may be marginally better than invisible/offline depending on your situation. Hopefully Discord will come to its senses sooner rather than later.
