Troubleshooting the Causes for Discord Freezing

Discord keeps freezing for you? There are a couple of reasons why that happens. Let's go through them one by one.

Step 1. Do you have key binds defined in Discord? Try Turning that off. When two or more apps share the same keyboard shortcuts, Discord may be freezing.

Step 2. Disable hardware acceleration in Discord. Although this can improve performance, it can also generate freezing behaviors with the program.

Step 3. Make sure you're not running Discord in any compatibility mode for versions of Windows older than what you're running.

Step 4. Time to look at your Internet connection:

  • Get closer to the wireless router, if you're connecting through Wi-Fi.
  • Restart your device and router.
  • Check your firewall and make sure you white list Discord.
  • Update the Discord app.

Does Discord still freeze?

Step 5. You may be using a slow internet connection. To make sure this doesn’t happen, use a faster internet connection. Either upgrade your ISP plan or call them to fix it if you're not getting the speeds you're paying for.

Step 6. If faster connections are not available for you, think about using all of your existing connections at the same time.

That can be accomplished by using a channel bonding / link aggregation service like Speedify.

Fix Discord Freezing with Faster, More Stable Internet

As mentioned above, when in need for faster, more stable and secure Internet, you should use all your available ones together at once. This will create one "super-pipe" for you to lounge in during your Discord and gaming sessions.

Speedify, the only software-only solution that can do that, runs directly on your computer or mobile device. It can combine all the available connections - you'll get more speed, stability and security for your online traffic.

Here's how to fix and avoid further issues like Discord that keeps freezing:

  1. Get Speedify and connect to it.
  2. Connect to all available connections. Examples include your home Internet (Wi-Fi or wired Ethernet), a tethered smartphone, a USB dongle for cellular, a nearby Wi-Fi public network.
  3. Choose a VPN server close to a Discord voice server. This will insure you get the best connection.
  4. Enjoy Discord - join the discussion.

Use all of your connections at the same time

Multiple connections, maximum performance

Speedify can bond any combination of 2 or more Internet connections and will intelligently distribute your online traffic between them for optimal performance.

In the majority of cases, Speedify will automatically detect and start using any Internet connections available to your device - but if you need help we have quick start guides available for most common set ups.

Discord Keeps Freezing? Forget About It with Speedify

If your Discord freezing issues are due to slow Internet speeds, you can use Speedify to get a safer and faster connection.

Speedify works by using channel bonding technology to combine multiple connections at once. This way, you will get a stable Internet connection that can also be faster.

If you use a regular VPN, you might see speed drops because of the added encryption and rerouting of traffic done by VPNs. However, with a bonding VPN like Speedify, you will not just stay secure but also boost your speeds.

Even if you’re using just one connection, Speedify can still make your connection faster. It detects and transmits lost packets before the packet loss is noticed by Discord or your online game.

And of course, it also works as a VPN, which means it secures your connection and hides your online traffic from snooping throttling ISPs and hackers.

Get Speedify and get rid of Discord keeps freezing problems once and for all.
