Why Discord is Blocked in UAE

Internet service providers in the United Arab Emirates (DU and Etisalat) blocks all VOIP services like Skype, Line, IMO, Viber, Whatsapp, Teamspeak and many others. No voice and video calling services are available in the country. You can access all such service only via secure and invisible VPN.

When you create a vpn connection on your device, all your Internet traffic pass via a secure encrypted tunnel and your IP address is masked. It looks like you are connected from another country (the country of VPN server you are connected to)
