If you’re sending a spoiler image to someone on Discord, consider using the spoiler tag so your recipient has to click the image to view it and it doesn’t open directly. You can do it on both your desktop and mobile device, and we’ll show you how.

When your recipient receives the image, it will be a blurry image with a spoiler tag. When this tag is clicked, the image opens as usual.

Discord Mobile Image Spoiler

  1. Upload an image in the compose field of the message.
  2. Before sending, on mobile, tap on the image and enable “Mark as spoiler.” On the desktop, click the eye icon.
  3. Enter any text you want to send with the image, then send it.

On your iPhone, iPad, or Android phone, use the official Discord app to submit spoiler images.

To do so, first launch the Discord app on your phone. In the app, open the chat in which you want to spoil an image.

In the bottom left corner of the chat screen, tap the “+” (plus) icon.


In the gallery view that opens, choose the image you want to send. Don’t touch the Send button yet. Instead, tap outside the image area to return to the chat screen.

Tap your attached photo to open it full size. Under the photo, enable “Mark as spoiler.” Then tap the back button.


You are back on the chat screen. Here, optionally, enter text to accompany your image. Then tap the Send button to send your photo as a spoiler in your current chat.

Write a message and send the spoiler image.

When your recipient gets the image, they will have to tap or click the image before they can view it. If they don’t do this, the image won’t open.

Submit a photo as a spoiler on Discord for desktop and web

On your desktop, use the Discord app or Discord for web to send spoiler attachments.

To do that, first start Discord on your machine. Then access the conversation in which you want to attach a spoiler image.

On the chat screen, next to the message box, double-click the “+” (plus) icon.

In your computer’s standard “open” window that opens, navigate to the folder that has your image. Then double click on your image to add it to Discord.

Select a photo.

Back in the chat window, in the top right corner of your photo, click the “Spoiler Attachment” option (an eye icon).

Mark a photo as a spoiler.

Discord has now hidden your photo and you now see a “Spoiler” tag. To send this attachment to your recipient, optionally type your text message. Then press Enter.

Are you ready.
