Discord is a fantastic platform for communication, whether you’re chatting with friends, participating in a gaming session, or collaborating with colleagues. Sometimes, you may want to share information or messages that you’d like to keep a surprise or hide from prying eyes. That’s where spoiler marks come in handy.
In this article, I’ll show you how to use spoiler marks in Discord to hide text until it’s intentionally revealed.
What Are Spoiler Marks?
Spoiler marks in Discord are a way to conceal text or content within a message. When you use spoiler marks, the text appears as a grayed-out or blurred message and other users can choose to reveal it by clicking on it. This feature is perfect for sharing spoilers about movies, TV shows, games, or any other content you don’t want to spoil for others.
How to Use Spoiler Marks in Discord
There are two ways you can use spoiler marks in Discord by selecting the message and then clicking on the spoiler (eye icon) from the hover tool menu. Alternatively to hide a particular text portion just use double bars (“||”) on both sides of the intended text.

Tips for Using Spoiler Marks Effectively
- Respect Others: Always be considerate of others when using spoiler marks. Don’t ruin the surprise for those who haven’t experienced the content yet.

- Custom Emojis: You can also use custom emojis alongside spoiler marks to make your hidden messages more engaging.
