How to Pause and Disable Invite Links on Discord

Invite links are the simplest and the most popular way to get people to join a Discord server. Every time you invite someone on Discord, they will be sent an invite link. However, Discord invite links remain active for a long period of time and can be abused. Let’s find out how you can pause or disable invite links on Discord.

1. Open Discord.com in your favorite browser and select the server where you want to disable and pause invites. Make sure your role on the server allows you to do so. Then click on the down arrow right next to the name of the server, and a drop-down menu will appear.
