Do Messages From Discord Show In Phone Bill?

Discord calls, as far as we know, are not recorded. While a nation state might theoretically record them, why would they? Discord uses end-to-end encryption. Discord is used by millions of individuals every year for millions of hours of chat. Even if those calls were recorded, the storage costs would be prohibitive.

Discord may theoretically record your calls. All calls are encrypted and routed through Discord servers. According to Discord’s privacy policy, they may save messages and VoIP data to assist them maintain services, but not real voice calls.

An previous Discord staff member’s Reddit post attempted to clarify the situation regarding privacy. It read:

  • Deleted messages are permanently removed from the system.
  • When you choose to remove images/files from our servers, they are immediately erased from our servers. They can still be stored in cloudflare or locally, but they’re gone from Discord and will be gone from elsewhere once the cache clears.
  • We don’t keep track of any server activities. We value privacy greatly, and we only intrude it when someone complains illegal or ToS-violating behavior and offers reliable proof to support their claim. Even then, we only look at the evidence that supports the claim. We never join a server with the intention of hunting for infractions or reading chat logs.
  • We don’t keep an eye on voice or video chat. I’m not sure if that’s physically possible, but there’s no way we’d ever do it.
  • Encryption is used for both audio and visual communications. It’s possible that if a bot joins the call, they’ll record it, however that sounds really difficult and would be very clear if it’s a bot account. It would be far easier to simply take a screenshot, but you’d still need to be a call participant to do so.
  • Yes, IP addresses are saved internally to enable for IP barring.

Discord, in essence, has no interest in retaining any more information than is required for marketing and the operation of its services. It is self-funded, backed by investors and Discord Nitro, and has no financial incentive to acquire data. Especially since any report of phone recording or excessive data collection would cause users to depart.

Do SMS appear on your phone bill?

Is it possible to see your text messages on your phone bill? Your cellphone provider, or “carrier,” keeps track of your calls, text messages, and even images sent from your phone. In billing statements issued to the owner, almost all mobile carriers provide detailed information about the phone’s usage.

How can I keep text messages from showing up on my phone bill?

In most cases, you won’t be able to hide numbers on your phone account for earlier conversations or SMS text messages. The best approach to keep future conversation private is to switch to a secure, encrypted messaging and calling software. Several programs give you more control over your call and text histories.

What appears on your phone bill?

If you have detailed billing, your statement may include sections that specify the number of calls (voice), texts, and picture/video messaging messages you’ve received for each line of service. Date, time, duration, type, to/from number, and charge are all recorded for each call or message made or received.

Is it possible for my parents to see my texts?

They are unable to do so.

The only information displayed is the time/date, from/to, and type.

The actual contents aren’t included.

This is for the parents who are reading this.

If you ask to see the phone and it is refused, or if all of your communications are wiped to prevent them from being examined, you have two options.

Accept not being able to read them, or call ATT and request that a messaging block be installed on the line, preventing all communications.

There can’t be anything to hide then.
