Password protected channels

Not planned




    Also an option to password protect DMs or the entire app even would be nice

    With the proper roles and permission set up, you should be able to customize your server beyond what a pw protected channel should be able to utilize.

    If you really are that serious about encryption, you probably shouldn't be using discord...

    Also note that while they reserve the right to look and police, they don't need to police. There is a report function and they can always install automatic filters to catch things not allowed. If something illegal is found, it would just be reported to discord and then they would remove it.

    just give people a role instead of a password

    Adding passwords can be used in events, and managing other users in the server. Changing roles is such a large work when you have fifty or more people to edit, besides if the channel is a single-use, you don't wanna change all the users roles back. I believe that adding in the password feature is a benefit to most of the Discord users.

    Possibly you could have a bot in a different channel and if you type an incorrect password it would say something like this Or possibly a pass-code system with a 4-digit code you  give to people.

    Bots are only temporary ugly fixes for problems like this.

    Just make a role that only people with the role can have access but I'll give this a go, great idea! Upvoted!
  • Lengo
    Could be cool.

    You can have a private channel which is remaining unseen as long as you don't give the proper permissions to the management 

  • thetechguy
    just a mae a channel private for a role.
  • Philip™
    Good Idea! I would like that.
  • TheForbiddenAi
    I really don't see a point in this when you could just lock certain channels to specific roles

    I love password protected rooms.


    Roles are great to set up long term, permanent solutions to access restriction for communities with a full time moderation team. Password protected rooms are great because they allow easier access to new members that you want to give permissions to even if you can't be on hand to give them the role they need. Or in off hours situations where someone needs access to a channel but they can't get into it, any member of that channel can help them access it instead of a few key people.


    Ideally putting in the password would add the role, much like the password bots do. And changing the password would remove the role from everyone.


    It's a simple thing, but a nice quality of life improvement. There isn't any good reason to not make it a feature, they just don't need to because there are bots out there that handle it already. And they have their minds on ways to make more money not improve QOL in such minor ways.

    I want this feature because I would love to have the ability for lower-level roles to be able to keep the highest level roles out of a locked room.  Like only Person A and Person B can enter a room, while even though Person C has a higher-level-role, they'd have to plug in a 4 digit password to view the channel

    "Really though? Setting up roles and permissions work better in all of your private server needs. Just sayin'" 

    I don't know how to setup roles etc, to make it same like simple password for channel. I mean - in my guild server we have diffrente roles for every rank, some players would like to talk with friends at private channel, but everybody with higher rank can join it, or if is it guild channel - i need to setup ranks for ppl who doesnt use our guild discord but want to join and talk with friends. Another thing if our guild make some pug raids, everybody can join our channel even peoply who are not in the raid, and it's a nonsense to set ranks for 40 players who joined our raid only once, so password for channels would be very nice idea, and I think its not so hard to create for you

    I'm currently developing a bot for temporary password protected voice channels for people who wants to talk with their friends in private without having the staff of the discord server to give them special roles and create channels. People who are interested can send me a DM (BM#5345).

    I'm not planning to give a lot of people access to it, because I'm building it on my own and it's my first discord bot project.
