On March 22, 2021, Discord iOS app’s age rating has been updated from 12+ to 17+.
As a result, iOS devices with content restrictions for apps may no longer be able to access the Discord app on their device.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Why did Discord update its age rating from 12+ to 17+?
A: Discord updated its age rating to 17+ at Apple’s request. We work hard to create robust controls and policies to help ensure minors are not exposed to content inappropriate for them.
Q: How can I regain access to Discord on my iOS device?
A: If you want to keep using Discord on your iPhone/iPad/iOS device, you will have to change your iOS content & privacy restrictions.
Note: If you are under the age of 18, you may need parental approval in order to make this change.
- If you want to manage or change your iOS content restrictions, go to Screen Time > Content & Privacy Restrictions > Content Restrictions > Apps.
- You can select the right setting that is appropriate for you. The Discord iOS app is allowed if you allow “17+” or “Allow All Apps.”
