People around the world are struggling to gain access to popular chat service Discord, as the platform continues to experience issues when attempting to log in.

Discord is one of the most popular chat services in the world, marketing to gamers who use the service to communicate with friends and fellow players through both text and voice calls.

The service has also become host to a number of massively popular communities, with fans of games like Call of Duty or League of Legends able to join massive servers in which they can talk to other enthusiasts about their shared interest.


DiscordDiscord is a chat service available on PC, Mac, iOS, and Android devices.

The service became unavailable on Monday, June 24 however, when networking company Cloudflare suffered a “possible leak” which left other sites such as Crunhyroll offline.

According to The Verge, Cloudflare stated that the leak is impacting “many internet services,” and that they are continuing to work with the network provider that created this route leak to remove it.

While Cloudflare chose not to name the network that had been causing the issue, it appears that Verizon were also struggling with their networks today, so it’s possible that the two instances were linked.

Apparently, CloudFlare’s systems were working fine, but this issue meant that traffic wasn’t “reaching us for a portion of our domains.” Cloudflare have noted that they believe the route leak has now been fixed, and services should start returning to normal operations soon.


DiscordDiscord allows players to launch their own games from inside the app.

Discord’s status site warned users that the platform had been affected by the “general internet outage,” and advised those anxious to get back online to “hang tight” and “pet your cats.”

According to the service themselves, users should all be able to reconnect now, however some people have continued to complain about the outage on Twitter. Those who are still affected should be able to log in once again in the near future.
