You Can’t Access Discord Solution

The easiest method of resolving the “Sorry, You’ve Been Impeded” error on Discord is by simply logging into the mobile version of the platform. If your friends are wondering where you are, don’t fear; everything is still working normally on the mobile app. Of course, streaming your games may not be possible, but essentially, you have the ability to get past the “you can’t access” issue.

What Does indeed “Sorry You have Been Blocked” on Discord Mean?

According to the error screen that pops up on your Discord application for Mac or PC, you’ve been blocked due to multiple factors. Obviously, “the action you just performed triggered the security policy.” This so-called “action” could have been a certain word or phrase, a SQL command, or distorted data input into the application. While such an issue might be the case for a very small percentage of users, you, the reader, are obviously not the reason this error has occurred. However, it’s impossible for so many on the platform to simultaneously experience this issue. Thus, there’s a very high chance this issue is a server-side event.

According to the bottom right text block, you can try resolving the issue by messaging the website owner to inform them you were blocked. While we won't deter you from doing this, the fact that many users are also experiencing this issue is evidence such a solution isn’t valid in this case.
