How To Hide Images Sent To You On Discord By Another User
Unfortunately, you cannot delete images which have been sent to you on Discord at the moment.
However, there are ways that you can hide images which have been sent to you.
Hide Images Sent To You In A Direct Message
The best way to hide images sent in a direct message, is to close the DM.
Closing the DM will not remove any message conversation history, but will be hidden from your direct message list unless you receive another message from the Discord user or if you send them a message by restarting a conversation from their user profile.
Also, if you wish to not receive any further images or messages from the user, you should block them.
Alternatively, you could ask the user who sent the image to delete it.
How To Close A Direct Message
Here are the quick steps to close a direct message which will hide the images which have been sent to you.
Find the message you want to close in the “Direct Message” list.
If you’re on Discord Mobile:
Hold your finger on the chat and a menu will appear.
There will be a “Close DM” button on the menu.
Tap on it, and the DM will be hidden.
Or, if you’re on Discord PC:
Right click on the DM and a menu will appear.
You will see on the menu a “Close DM” button.
Click on it and the DM will be hidden.
Hide Images Sent To You In Group Chats And Servers
At the moment, the best way to hide images sent to you in group chats and servers is to completely leave the group or server.
However, you could try, and ask the user who sent the image to delete it, but unfortunately, other users may not follow through with your request.
How To Leave A Server Or Group Chat
Here are the easy steps to leave a server or group chat.
Firstly, find the server or group chat which you want to leave.

To leave a server, go in to the server and tap on the name or the three dots.
Then, a menu will appear and you will need to scroll down and tap on “Leave Server”.
To leave a group, hold your finger on the group from your direct messages and tap on “Leave Group”.
