Do you want to create an NSFW channel on Discord without getting locked or banned? Read on to learn how to enable the NSFW feature and much more.

Discord is a popular chat platform that gamers, artists, and other communities use to communicate with each other. It has several features that make it an attractive choice for those looking to create their server or channel.

However, some users want to keep their group clean from any NSFW content, so they can create a special channel for it. This makes your new channel perfect for people who want to create a place where they can talk about adult stuff without worrying about being outed.

Creating the channel is quite an easy task. However, some levels can be quite challenging; read on as we guide you on how to go about your new NSFW channel.

How to Make an NSFW Channel on Discord Desktop?

The essence of creating the NSFW channel is to filter and warn users whenever they are about to join the channel. So, it is possible to customize the channel so that whenever someone joins the NSFW channel, they get greeted with a  warning about the channel containing adult content that’s not safe for work. The user can then select a Yes to continue or a No to exit from the platform.

So, to make the NSFW channel, here is what you'll need to do:

Step 1: Go to the Desktop version of Discord and touch the Download button to get Discord for your Mac or Windows machine. Note that you need to use the Desktop version because you won't have the option to mark a channel as NSFW on your mobile app device.
