Discord Eases Ban on Accessing NSFW Servers from iOS

Last week, Discord placed a strict ban on accessing NSFW content using iOS devices, while asking server owners to mark their community as NSFW if it was “organized around NSFW themes.” Today, the company has eased the ban on accessing such servers from its iPhone and iPad apps (via Engadget).

The chat service has updated its policy to reflect the change, noting that it will only ban servers devoted to “explicit pornographic content.” Users can access other NSFW servers via their iOS devices by first opting in from a computer.

“This new method won’t satisfy all users, but it will let many chatters continue to participate on iPhones and iPads. It could be particularly helpful for moderators who’d lose the ability to police discussions away from their computers.”

While the company has not yet shared the exact reason behind its decision, it is believed that the initial ban on accessing NSFW-labeled servers on iOS was likely prompted by Apple’s App Store policies.

Apple does not allow apps where nudity is a major focus, although it allows “incidental” content.
