5 Different Ways To Fix “Discord You are Being Rate Limited”

So how you can fix this? I will explain you four different methods that will be only the best solution for this problem. Before that, I want to share a quick fix for this problem.

It is a very simple fix, so the very first thing that you can do is restart the computer or restart your device. This will clear the memory and then hopefully allow you to log into the website you’re trying to access.

Method 1: Wait For Some time

Now that we know making too many attempts to access Discord can put you on a time out. I would suggest waiting for an hour or two or maybe 24 hours to try again. Too many failed attempts can result in a suspension. So the best thing you can do is wait for some time and then log out from your account and login back in. It is the best thing you can do instead of getting banned by Discord.

Method 2: Use Incognito Mode

I would suggest that you can go ahead and try to access discord in incognito mode. If you are using google chrome then click on the three dots in the upper right hand corner.

Method 3: Use A VPN

If 2nd method didn’t work then you can proceed to the third method which will be using the VPN service. What exactly happened is that this problem comes up when your IP address has been blocked. So using the VPN we can get a different IP address that can help us to bypass this problem.


So you can use any VPN and I would recommend you the proton. You can connect to any location and once connected to it. You can restart your discord application and try checking again.

If the IP has been blocked this method will surely work for you. 

Method 4: Restart your Router

If this doesn’t work for you then I would recommend that you should try restarting your router and modem. Here’s how you can do that.

First, unplug the cable that is behind the router.
