Is There Any Problem in Setting Invisible Username?
Adding an invisible username is not a violation of Discord’s terms and conditions. In fact, there is nothing that states it is a violation when you go through the T&C of Discord. But there might be some servers where you might face some issues. As you might be already aware, a lot of Discord servers come with their own sets of rules and regulations. Before changing the name to the invisible one make sure to go through the server guidelines and see if there is any issue with this. If there is no issue then you are good to go.
You are advised to go through the server’s guidelines so that you won’t face any issues in the future regarding the username of your discord account.
I have tried changing the username to an invisible one on one of my Discord account and it worked without any issue. Make sure that you copy the invisible character properly otherwise things won’t work. Once done, you will no longer see anything in the place of username. You can also set up a transparent Discord avatar to make it completely invisible.
