Privileged intents are a subset of Gateway Intents that restrict access to potentially sensitive information. Verified bots need approval to make use of Privileged Intents.
Privileged intents are a subset of Gateway Intents that restrict access to potentially sensitive information. Our API Documentation includes a list of the current Privileged Intents. Unverified bots may use Privileged Intents freely. However, verified bots will need to apply for access to these intents.
Verified bots will be able to do most of what they can do on Discord without Privileged Intents, but there are some Gateway Events, and a few API responses, that require them. If you’re not sure whether or not your bot uses these intents, please have a look at our API Documentation, and/or the documentation for the programming library you used, to see if any of your bot’s features depend on them.
