Privacy and safety are high priorities for Discord, including with the use of bots. That’s why we want to make it easier for you to understand what information about bots and other apps in the servers you’re in may have access to through Discord.
Certain data access is unique to each bot, based on factors like its selected settings and verification status (learn more here). To see this data access that a bot currently has in a server, open its profile in the server from the Discord desktop or browser app and click on the “Data Access” tab.
In addition to the data described above and information they get from their direct communications or other interactions with users (e.g., a user’s command for the bot to take a specific action), all bots and other apps have access to a baseline set of data in the servers that they’re in, including:
- Basic user profile information of server members (e.g., usernames, avatars, banners, discriminators, and nicknames);
- Roles that members have in the server;
- Metadata about messages (e.g., day and time sent);
- The voice channel members join, as well as metadata about voice channels (e.g., muted, deafened, streaming, or have video on);
- Message reactions by members; and
- Language information selected by members in their User Settings.
