Down Detector also previously received more than 20,000 reports about the internet connectivity problem.

On the other hand, according to Talk Esport's latest report, Discord's current issue prevents players to access any features offered by the popular video app.

Aside from this, Discord users also complained that they are stuck on connecting, preventing them to move forward and access their accounts.

How to Fix Discord's Connectivity Issue

As of the moment, Down Detector hasn't received new reports yet from Discord users. The website's latest highest number of reports was on Apr. 20. It stated that 3% experienced website issues and 96% of the reports are about server connection problems. But, if you are still having the internet connecting loop issue, here's what you need to do: 

  1. The first thing you need to do is click the "Show Hidden Icons" option. This is located in the bottom left corner of your account's taskbar. 
  2. After that, you need to click the Discord option and then close it. Once it is removed, you must open the menu and enter the correct time in your server or area. 
  3. You can do this by changing the date and time in the search results. On the other hand, you need to make sure that the options "Set The Time Automatically" and "Set The Time Zone Automatically" are both activated on the new page. 
  4. After that, all you need to do is re-run your Discord app and log in to your account.
