Getting Started

Cordfence is a tool that helps you protect your Discord server from VPNs, alt-accounts, and more. To setup Cordfence in your own server, follow these steps.

Step 1: Add Cordfence Bot to Your Server

  1. Go to the Cordfence website.
  2. On the home page, locate the "Add Cordfence Bot" button.
  3. Login to your Discord account that owns the server you would like to add Cordfence to.
  4. Choose the Discord server you want to add Cordfence to from the drop-down menu.
  5. Follow the prompts to authorize Cordfence to join your server.

Step 2: Disable Invite Creation for All Members

  1. On your Discord server, navigate to the server settings by clicking on the server name.
  2. Select the "Roles" tab from the left sidebar.
  3. Find the "@everyone" role and click on it.
  4. Toggle off the "Create Instant Invite" permission for the "@everyone" role. This ensures that only Cordfence-generated invites can be used to join the server.

Step 3: Login to Cordfence Using Discord

  1. Return to the Cordfence website.
  2. Click on the "Login with Discord" button to log in using your Discord account.
  3. Grant the necessary permissions for Cordfence to access your server data.
  1. Once you're logged in to Cordfence, select your Discord server from the dropdown menu (top left).
  2. In the Cordfence dashboard for your server, you will find the new server invite link.
  3. Copy the Cordfence-generated invite link by clicking the button.

Congratulations! Your Discord server is now protected by Cordfence. Users can only join your server using the Cordfence-generated invite link, ensuring a higher level of security against VPNs, alt-accounts, and other potential threats.
