Can an attacker find your IP through Discord?

Can an attacker find your IP through Discord?

First, I have to say that I am not responsible of your actions, and that you may not have good reasons to do this.

It is possible to find someone’s IP address while chatting on any social media site, but it requires social engineering because you are not directly connected to other people on discord.

To begin, you need to send him a link to an IP logger website in the chat (google “IP logger” to find more information about IP logger websites). When the “victim” will click on the link you send, it will log the IP address of his device and send it to you.

He will also be redirected to another URL (ex: a YouTube video), that you may choose depending on which IP logger you are using.

There are many websites offering IP logging services for free, but make sure that you have enough knowledge and you know what you are doing before you use those kinds of services.

Can an attacker find your IP through Discord?

Unfortunately, YES. They could do this by getting you to click on a malicious link in the chat. If they control the website you are clicking on, they will be able to see your IP.

In a previous version of this answer, I stated that if they only had your IP, it wasn’t that big a deal since there’s not much they can do with that information alone. I WAS WRONG. Here is one example exploit.

NOTE:

This doesn’t apply to discord, but if you’re on a site like Minecraft which has self-hosted servers, just being on a bad actor’s server is enough for them to do everything mentioned here.

Once you’re on their website, they could force your browser to run malicious JavaScript. They will change their web server IP address to the address of your router or other device within your network.

The JavaScript commands will be sent from your browser to the targeted device in your network instead of the attacker’s web server (No MAC address needed!). This is a devious backdoor to avoid your firewall and take over the targeted device.

This is a gross simplification—and there’s a lot that goes into it I don’t fully understand as I don’t spend my time breaking into networks. But the main takeaway is this method can be used to own your local network or device on it.

The simplest way to avoid this: use a VPN (Virtual Private Network) to obscure your real IP address and route your web usage through so they will not have any way to access your local network.

This will provide protection from many other network hacking strategies as well as enhanced privacy overall.

However, not all VPNs are created equal. Some boast higher connection speeds than others or are better for accessing geo-restricted content like Netflix. Some have security flaws, as revealed in the NordVPN fiasco.

I will be making a blog on medium which will reveal which VPN is best for me, why, and my experiences with it. Please check it out—I will update the post with a link when it’s ready.

The easiest way to do it which newbies tend to use, or people who want to look scary or impress their friends, or even want attention, they use IP Loggers.

For a more professional level, some actual hackers, whether they have really great skills or just beginners. They are still able to get your IP through Discord chat, Discord call, etc.

But don’t worry, Discord is safer than Skype, much safer. It’s really easy for anyone to get your IP through a Skype call without even using an IP logger, but on Discord, it might get quite hard sometimes.

Just avoid suspicious servers, suspicious friends, screenshare, suspicious links and if you really don’t want your IP to get leaked, use a VPN or a proxy server. After all, IPs are not that big of a deal sometimes.

They will get your domain, Internet service provider, quite accurate coordinates of your house (doesn’t always work. Longitude and latitude might become very accurate or not accurate).

Conclusion:

Unlikely, unless you hack into the records of userID to IP address mapping at the time they are connected. It may be recorded after they disconnect due to legal requirements.

My question back to you is why? That IP address isn’t particularly useful. They could be using a proxy and be in a totally different region of the world than their IP address indicates. Most like they are behind a NAT router or some other device that changes their IP address too.

If you are upset at this person, it would be better to review the policies of Discord and demonstrate where they have violated those policies to the admins.

If they didn’t violate policies and you are upset anyway, I suggest you find a way to deal with it.

Many people on the internet feel empowered by their anonymity and use it to behave in ways they never would act in a face to face discussion.

Discord Text Channel objects have an associated array of user objects.

Each user object does not include an IP address.

The only way for you to know the IP address is for you to be running the chat server itself, and to look at the logs; however, even this is not enough.

It’s a RESTful API, which means it’s possible for a user to use a different IP address for every interaction with a server, as long as the session object ID stays the same from request to request.

The question is “How do I find someone’s IP address on a specific Discord Text Channel?

Ask them.

They’re not likely to know – or be willing to tell you. Or if they tell you, tell you the truth. But, that’s the way to do it. And their IP address will change when they change locations (and maybe when they don’t.)

I suppose you could get hired by whomever runs Discord Text Channels into whatever part of it runs their servers – and then violate your conditions of employment to find this out.

Keep focusing on their IP addresses — the rest of us might be safer for it.

As a general rule, unless it’s your application or server, any application that involves two or more users contacting a third party internet server and exchanging information will prevent you from obtaining any other individuals IP address (unless the owner of the server purposely makes it available).

The reason is that none of you are actually connecting to each other, only the server that’s hosting the application.
